Raging River


The river rages

As the rain pours down

Weaving its way through

The small deserted town


The wind fiercely howls

Its bellowing gale

As violent currents erupt

Then rapidly sail


Droplets dance freely

Over the endless waves

The surface of the water

Ever turbulent and grave


Written by, Michelle Cook


After discovering so many great prompts throughout the week and writing poems about some of them, I’ve decided to give everybody a chance to get involved and share their writing prompts here.  So if you have a prompt that you would like to share, please leave it in the comments section below.  I will then chose one of the prompts and write a poem about it.  Thanks everyone!  I look forward to seeing what you come up with!
