March 21: Mirkwood

Catch glimpses of the dangerous Spiders of Mirkwood! See the fortress palace of King Thranduil! Go whitewater barreling down the River Running!

Today's Challenge:
We were young, we were merry, we were very, very wise, And the door stood open at our feast, When there passed us a woman with the West in her eyes, And a man with his back to the East.
-Mary Elizabeth Coleridge

The words West and East are often used in the works of Tolkien. Write a story or poem or create an artwork that uses these words as the central focus, whether as cardinals, regions, or as metaphors.

Happy spring to everyone in the north! And happy autumn to those of you in the south who are doubtlessly ready to be rid of the summer heat! :)
