Weekly Blackout Poetry Challenges

Check out @blackoutpoetrychallenges on Instagram for weekly blackout poetry inspiration! Anyone can participate, and if you do, don't forget to tag #bpchallenges so your work can be found by the group.

Challenge for Week 1: "Home"
No rules. What does home mean to you?

Her house was tugged through the grass to the clay.
She pulled herself, trying not to slip back on the worthless flower pot.

Challenge for Week 2: "Walk the Line"
All the words must touch in a vertical line.

He frowned at her,
Buckled his seat belt,
Patted the steering wheel. 
She loved his truck. did he,
So he bit back the comment that soon,
He'd show her what his truck could really do.
Take the corners like a boss and sling mud.
"Ready?" he asked the truck.

Challenge for Week 3: "The Great Cover Up"
Blackout words using something other than pen, pencil, paint, or ink.

Buzzed on the coffee,
Watching, busy, grinning.
Stop thinking!

Challenge for Week 4: "Rhyme Time"

The perfect shower
Was a long song.

Challenge for Week 5: "Tribe Tribute"
Pick your favorite blackout poet (bees__buzz)
and emulate their style

It's about trust.
You need to step through the fire.

Challenge for Week 6: "Love Is..."
Use the phrase as your inspiration.

She kissed his lips,
And his world crumbled gently,
In the tender moment.
