Spotlight Poetry and Writing Challenge – Micro-Season: “Thunder Lowers Its Voice” – Naturalist Weekly Prompt – Thunder or Lightning – September 23 – 2022 – Hosted by Mark S @ Naturalist Weekly

  • Thunder Lowers Its Voice (Sep 22 – Sep 27)
  • Hibernating Creatures Close Their Doors (Sep 28 – Oct 02)
