Weekend Writing Prompt #74 – Brandish

I mostly need a nudge of some kind to write something. Thank you, Sammi!

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.

Word Prompt

Brandish

Challenge

Some feel it necessary to brandish their good deeds about

Like a Dolce & Gabbana logo splashed across their chests

A scream of “Look at me! Look what I did!

Can you see me? Are you impressed ?”

Yes, the deeds are appreciated for what they are

A meal, a ride, a giving of things

A kindness not echoed in the eyes nor resonating sincerity

All about appearances.

Requiring zero investment in self

Along you come

Not seeking a return on your investment

Not drawing attention to your deeds

Not wanting other than to show your love

Giving from the heart with sincerity

No questions asked

You do get a return

Love

  2. Dear Dale,

    What a great use of the word ‘brandish.’ Some people do brandish their ‘good deeds’ like a sword. Great contrast between two types of people we all know or have known. Well done.

    Shalom and hugs,

    Rochelle

    • Dear Rochelle,

      Thank you. Sometimes you have an idea of the direction you will take… this was the case with brandish. I just could not see myself using it in any other way! Glad it worked for you!

      Lotsa love,
      Dale
