Vice Versa #4

Every Tuesday for a time you will find either Vice/Versa or Midnight Snack posted here at 12:01 a.m.  These were features that had been part of Poets United for a short time in the past.  We are reinistating them to see if there is any interest

.  For “Vice/Versa” two random words will be posted along with their polar opposites (Otherwise known as antonyms). Write something using all four words. It can be any form of writing; poetry, prose, short stories or whatever else.

For “Midnight Snack” a simple photo prompt will be posted.  We will guide you in no direction. It is just you and the photo or you and the words.  If you are inspired, then write about it; if it doesn't inspire, then go back to bed.

 Be sure to visit the others who post here and see how creative others can be.  We expect this initially to be a small group, but that's okay! It will be easy to visit all other responders that way.

This week it is time for:
Vice Versa
Write poetry or prose using all four words.  It can be any form of poetry or prose.  Post your related scribbling and leave a comment.  Be sure to visit the others who post here and see how they differ from you.

Common /Rare
               Simple Rules
  • Post any time; it's just the night owls who get first crack.
  • Make sure to visit other late  scribes.
  • Leave us a comment about the photo or words before you  nod off.
  • Or just a comment saying hi!
  • Most of all, enjoy!


  1. Can hardly believe I am really the first poster on this. That has to be a first! LOL I have been trying to post some of my own paintings with my poems lately--though they do not specifically match the poems unfortunately. Write on/

    1. Nice to see your words as well as your painting here, Peggy!

  2. Peggy, I like that you are posting your paintings with your poems, and I really like this painting. These opposite words are good. It will be fun to see what others come up with.

    1. Lots of good writing, Victoria. You will see.

  3. I enjoy these prompts. Please continue them. Although I didn't link my opposites as well as the first writer did. How lucky you are to be able to paint as well as write!

  4. i was writing a poem already using build, destroy and common! {smile} thanks for doing the Vice Versa prompts, Mary! i'll be back to visit!

    1. So glad the prompt worked in well with what you were writing!

  5. Thanks for the prompt words Mary. They fitted in so well with what I had been working on. :)

    1. You're welcome! And yes, they definitely did work well into your poem!

  6. I just left you a comment on PJ about this Mary.
    Thanks :)
