Colleen Chesebro’s Weekly Poetry Challenge – Synonyms Only

For this week’s Poetry Challenge at Colleen Chesebro’s blog, I’ve written a Nonet. Synonyms only for the words ‘Spell’ and ‘Treat’.




Hi! I’m glad to see you here. Are you ready to write some syllabic poetry?

Here are your two words for this week: Spell & Treat

These words are homonyms. BE CREATIVE with your word choice.

HERE’S THE CATCH: You can’t use the prompt words! SYNONYMS ONLY! 


Self preservation


Self Preservation


When seeking truth, it’s imperative

Not to be swayed by losing sight

Propaganda is hexing

Succumbing to pressure

Don’t give up your rights


Freedom’s gift
