let's play make believe




do you remember playing make believe when you were a child?


dressing up as a princess or a cowboy? 




building a fort in the livingroom?



turning an empty box into a space ship?



it's a shame we can't continue playing when we become adults.

this week's prompt is really all up to you ~ let's write about fantasy.  it can by a personal fantasy of yours or a fairy tale or even science fiction, as long as it is fantastical. { i know that's probably not a real word, but you get the idea, right? }

here are a few suggestions, but please feel free to go wherever the prompt leads you ~

write a tale of fantasy or science fiction

write a fairy tale

write about something that could not possibly happen in real life

write about when you played make believe as a child

write about a personal fantasy you have {no porn please}

Please write a new poem for this prompt;  link it in with Mr. Linky;  leave us a comment below;  visit as many other participants as you can { and please leave them a comment, too! }

thank you for jamming with us!

  5. Even as adults, we still ought to make believe. Some call it dreams others, hope... it's what keeps us going, isn't it.
    Great prompt Dani, thanks :)

  11. Fun prompt. I am still working on mine. I keep having snatches of ideas that then fly off before i can capture them. I guess I should just start writing it down and see where it goes. Enjoyed reading what all of you have written so far.

  14. Shakespeare used 'fantastical' in Macbeth. It's one of the several hundred words he coined. It's a great word, isn't it?

  15. yes, Margo, i do love 'fantastical' ~ i probably remembered it from Shakespeare without making the connection. i'm so excited by everyone's comments that i can't wait to read your poems!
