Weekend Writing Prompt #299: This weekend your challenge is to write a poem or a piece of prose in exactly 47 words using the word “Saturnine”. The challenge is simple: each week you will be given an exact number of words you can use to write a poem or piece of prose. You can use any format or style you like; go wherever your inspiration takes you. The only rules are these:
- your poem / prose must contain this week’s word (see note below). The word does not have to count towards the exact word count total – it can be in the title, or the first letters of the lines of a poem can spell it out – you can be as creative as you want as long as it’s there somewhere.
- the length of your poem / prose must match the number of words stated in this week’s challenge. No more. No less.
- A note on the word: you can use any variation of the word (for example: call, calls, calling, called etc). If you find you are struggling to use this week’s word you may substitute it for a synonym – just include a note to explain the swap. Remember, this is supposed to be fun! 🙂
Can’t wait to read what you have come up with!

Saturnine the weekend prompt mate
Wondering the meaning she passed a peanut
Wife said it is Saturn the planet
Explained Scientist calls it the 9th planet
Chewing the peanut, I ask is she right mate?
Wives are always right, planet or peanut
Mate, it’s a good peanut.
It ends here…. 😁
