Scarecrow

 

This week’s prompt by Jude.

The scarecrow featured is one of a number located in the Chew Valley, near Bristol as part of a contest. This one is outside ‘The Pony and Trap’ gourmet pub. Write a piece about him (Clue: guardian of the Galaxy). Or any other scarecrow you remember. Or have made yourself.

 

 

Rain starts play

ko-unThis week’s prompt by Jude.

I just saw renowned Korean poet Ko Un at a poetry and wine festival in Slovenia – a very seductive combination. A marvellous writer, Ko Un, now in his eighties, is also a zen master. This quote on the ‘poetry wall’ at the festival cafe, in Slovenian and English, might inspire you to write, whatever the weather. Set the timer for half an hour and see what happens.
