Weekend Writing Prompt #73 – Vortex

So. OK. The weekend is officially over. However, sometimes things happen and you decide, why the heck not? I tried to picture myself having the guts to read this as Slam Poetry. By the way, I have no idea what I am talking about but hey, if you don’t occasionally put yourself out there and try, how do you know? And how do you grow?

A word prompt to get your creativity flowing this weekend. How you use the prompt is up to you. Write a piece of flash fiction, a poem, a chapter for your novel…anything you like. Or take the challenge below – there are no prizes – it’s not a competition but rather a fun writing exercise. If you want to share what you come up with, please leave a link to it in the comments. Thanks for hosting, Sammi!

Word Prompt

Vortex

Challenge

One; annoyance, okay, it happens

Another; surprise, endurable, that’s life

Subsequent; disbelief and anger, really?

What direction this momentum?

What volume does it portend?

Can it be redirected?

Pressure

Children

House

Car

Bills

Broken here

Damaged there

Sucked into a vortex that won’t let go

Pulling away and down

What life, this?

Pressure

Children

House

Car

Bills

So tired

Suddenly, flung from the maelstrom

Disembarked rather brutally

Landing with a thud

Thought it would change everything

Time to change perspective

Or is it perception?

Begin afresh

Pressure

Children

House

Car

Bills

Still there

This time, better prepared
