Weekend Writing Prompt #222 – Glow

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.

I was going somewhere totally different had I done this yesterday. But yesterday, I decided to not play in the blogosphere.  And today was a day that deserved a mention.

One yearyear ago today your life was snuffed out.  You were but twenty-two years old.  So much living ahead of you. It is so hard not to ask the question “Why?”  But then, why not? We are not in control of these things.

We move forward without the physical you. And we congregate with your parents and your loved ones; all the people your glowing persona touched in one way or another.

We raise a glass to you and consider ourselves blessed that your light touched us, no matter how briefly.

To you, Pat.

  1. The heartbreak of it, and the glow of soul. I feel you, my friend. I remember the devastation. How could it not be. How could it be already a full year? How could it not. Hugs to you and your son and all the loved ones.

  2. Q

    I’m afraid I’ve not much to add to what you’ve penned so beautifully. I just feel as if the world makes zero sense when the young are taken from it. It’s as if the blueprint to the future got lost. And for someone so full of life as this kid. Well, I just understand.

    Hugs and love.
