Coming Soon - Midnight Snack

Coming soon to Poets United

Midnight Snack


For a while now I have been wanting to incorporate a regular photo prompt into our website. I just never really found the time to sit down and think it over until now.  I have been kicking an idea around for the past few weeks and now I am ready to put it out there.  Every Tuesday at 12:01 a.m. a simple photo prompt will be posted.  We will guide you in no direction. It is just you and the photo.  If it inspires you, then write about it, if it doesn't then go back to bed.  We hope you enjoy the photos we post as you raid the fridge in the late hours searching for milk, ice cream and inspiration.

The reason we have decided to post it regularly at 12:01 on Tuesdays is to give a chance to the late night adventurers and those who can't sleep to find their muses before the rest of the normal world wakes up.  Any one else can post at any time but it will be curious to see who is writing in the wee hours of the morning. There have been many a time where I have wandered around the house at night unable to sleep or too tipsy to pass out and find myself with a pen looking for inspiration.  I hope this is just another way to get that pen going. 

All photos will be linked to the creators that we have sought out.  We will not post anything without permission.  If you would like to show your support for these wonderful artists and photographers please be sure to click the links provided and view some of their other works and of course don't forget to comment.

                     Simple Rules
  • Make sure to visit other late night scribes.
  • Leave us a comment about the photo before you finally nod off.
  • Please post no more than 3 poems per prompt.
See you next Tuesday Morning/Night!


  1. What a fabulous idea, Robb. Of course, midnight your time is about 7am here...which would give me an advantage if it were not for the fact that I'd be off to work :(

  2. Oh, another fantastic idea! VERY cool!!!!!

  3. Good idea Robb, I look forward to it. :-)

  4. Clever idea. But i don't think i'll be a part of the midnight fun! :( I live in India and when it's midnight there it must be day in the US.

  5. "Oh no, another morsel for monkey mind!"
