Vice Versa - #11

Every Tuesday you will find either Vice/Versa or Midnight Snack posted here at 12:01 a.m.

Please, when you link your own writing, do others who link the courtesy of visiting their links as well.  It truly is such a small group this is very possible.  Don't just 'link and run.'  And if someone visits your blog, please visit theirs in return; as we are all about community and reciprocity here.

 For this week's “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.

This week's  
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. (We love comments too.)  Then enjoy the writings of others who post here and see how they differ from you.

Condemn /Praise
               Simple Rules
  • Post any time; it's just the night owls who get first crack.
  • Make sure to visit other  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. Sherry Ma'am,
    I made a mistake in the link of #2. Please erase same. The #3 is the correct one. Thanks!


  2. Dear All
    I was in a hurry and made silly mistakes. Apologies!


  3. [I make silly mistakes all the time, even when I'm not in a hurry :-)]
    Good morning Mary,
    You work so hard everywhere.Thanks for the prompt.

  4. This is a small enough site and it's purpose is clear. Any poems posted that do not include the four words will be removed. It is not an 'open link.'

    (This does dot apply to any of the poems linked at present, as I have already removed one that did not use the words or link back to Vice Versa....but used this small site as an opportunity to open link.)

  5. Thanks for the cool prompt, Mary, first thing to have sparked a poem in days. I didnt use the word condemn because it didnt feel like it fit in my poem of praise. Hope that's okay.

    Thanks also for all you do to keep this site going. What would we do without you?

  6. I really enjoy this site, Mary. Thanks for that.
    what do you mean, "link back to the site"? i'm new to blogging.
    thanks, Rysks.

    also, please check out my response to this prompt, titled, "Anchorhold"

  7. I look forward to this prompt all week Mary. The words jump through my mind throughout the day and it's quite enjoyable. And then to see the different poems from the same words... quite cool. But today my mind decided to pull the rug out from under me, taunting me with nonsense questions and shaky limbs... But I persevered! Yeah.

  8. I may have stretched the prompt just a bit by expanding "condemn" into "condemnation" but I think it works since the original word is included and it's still an antonym for "praise." :D

  9. Thanks for the lovely Vice Versa words, Mary! :)

  10. Mary this is great! I love what you have done....wonderful prompt!

  11. I went in a different direction, but I enjoyed the challenge :D

  12. This was so fun. I will be back later tonight to comment on everyone's efforts.

  13. I missed the cut off time by 23 hours :(
