Five things...

Five things

This week's writing prompt is about noticing things in your immediate environment. Little things, ordinary things, the familiar things you see and use every day. Or unexpected things, lost and then found things, things discovered in the backs of cupboards, jigsaw puzzles and board games dusted off. Or the absence of things: eggs and toilet paper, unexpected visitors or indeed any visitors at all. New things: vegetable boxes hastily assembled, books delivered by a neighbour and placed in quarantine beside the front door...

We'd like you to make a list of things you notice in your environment, then write some personal reflections using, as sub-headings, at least five of the things you noticed; or write a poem that includes five things from your list.
