You’ve got two weeks to come up with a poem based on one or more of these elements. Post links to or what you wrote here. The next prompt will go live on December 10th, 2017. A winner will be selected out of all entries to be featured on OWS Ink, the new reader-focused arm of Our Write Side.

Now, don’t panic, go write, and remember the open call currently up here at OWS for poetry with an elemental theme!
