Music Mondays Challenge

OK, this is something new.

The Word of the Day Blog was started to provide a daily word prompt, in the tradition of the Daily Post which sadly ceased to be about 8 months ago. There are other word prompt blogs out there too and also quite a few picture challenges.

So I thought, what about music inspired challenge. Music can inspire and stimulate our creative minds just as much if not more than a picture or a word can. It also has the added advantage of being something that visually impaired bloggers can join in with.

So my plan is every Monday (this one’s a bit late) to post a piece of music and asking people to write a story or a poem based on the music and how it made them feel.

This is the first one.  Claude Debussy, Prélude à l’Après-midi d’un faune




~ Captivating ~



Enchanting forest

captivated by magic,

their mystical spell.


Miraculous dreams

transform to reality,

secrets never tell.


Fireflies fluttering

wishes and prayers dance on wings,

with each fairytale
