Tuesday Prompts

A couple of rules for today's prompts

They are numbered. For every odd prompt used you must use an even prompt as well.

Prompts in quotes are exact copies from poems

You can start (your first prompt) with any prompt, but subsequently you must work from top to bottom. That is, say you use prompt seven, your next prompt must be an even number 8 or higher. TRUST ME!
