Since i have a lot of friends who are writers, poets, and songwriters, I thought I'd start a new weekly post: Writing Prompt Wednesday. The prompt will be a collage picture-poem with some text I've pulled from a magazine or newspaper. This week's prompt is a day early and tomorrow I'll have a book review that normally gets posted on Tuesdays. Next week, things will be back on schedule.

This week's prompt: "Cold rain beat down, and the scraggly brush bent in the wind."

Feel free to use the prompt as a jumping off point. Take it literally...or not. If it helps gets the creative juices flowing, somehow, that's all that matters.

If you'd like to share your piece, you can add it to the comments, post it on my facebook page, or send it to me via the contact form.

If you'd like to use the image on a blog post—non-commercial use only—please credit me (Janyce Boynton of Pinecone and Sparrow) and send me a link to the page.
