Won the Battle

Written for Go Dog Go Cafè’s: Tuesday’s Writing Prompt 02/12/2019

Today’s prompt:  

Today I challenge you to write a poem called an “elfchen.”  I was introduced to these little poems by poets on Instagram.  I find them challenging yet fun to write. An elfchen is an 11 word poem written in 5 lines— Line 1=1word,  Line 2=2words,  Line 3=3words, Line 4=4 words,  Line 5 =1 word.  Lines 1 and 5 should not be the same word.  

The fun in this challenge on Instagram is when you are tagged by someone, you must start your poem using that person’s LAST word as your FIRST.  Today I give you 3 elfchens written my me.  You may use the last word of any of the poems to start yours.

Stronger,

Resilient, Wise.

She has won.

The battle: her mind.

Warrior.

I challenge these 3 individuals to write an “ elfchen”. You can use the last word of mine OR begin one of your own. Please create a Pingback to this post.

  1. This was a powerful choice of words. Especially with the end word warrior. Great job. (I didn’t see it show up on Go Dog Go Cafe but I am glad I found it!
