Word Prompt

Furrowed

Challenge

So, here’s a little “quickie” before I go out into the Siberian-level cold of Montreal.  Because I love these challenges, especially when the word count is so low!  Thank you, always, to Sammi for hosting this!

We sit across from each other

Your brow is furrowed, your lips are set

I see the confusion in your eyes

Because you know not where I’m coming from

It’s not your fault, it just is

I don’t love you

Weekend Writing Prompt #89 – Silhouette

I just finished watching a biopic of Jane Fonda and was inspired by something she said.  Suddenly I knew what I wanted to write for this challenge.

Word Prompt

Silhouette

Challenge

It took me years

To reside comfortably within my own skin

No longer a silhouette of myself

I can feel my anger

I can feel my judgments

I can feel my kindness

Everything that makes up who I am

Including the fact that I just may be

Stonger and braver than the man I am with

Which is difficult for him

But necessary for me

Weekend Writing Prompt #88 – Foundations

I usually participate in these prompts when we have less than 75 words. However, I felt like writing and my thoughts went towards love. Why? Why not?

Thank you to Sammi for hosting this weekly party. It really pushes me to try different things.

From whence came my notions of what love is?

Where have I learnt what love I deserve, or don’t?

Dare I assume I should be loved in a certain manner?

We go through life with certain assumptions

Though “they” say it is best to not have expectations

That way we are guaranteed no disappointment

How realistic is that?

If we have properly witnessed what real love is

How can we not expect to believe we deserve it as well?

With foundations solidly built

We would have no need for these questions

Weekend Writing Prompt #87 – Ignite

In such a rush, I forgot my preamble!  Thank you Sammi Cox for giving me something to think about while I struggle over another prompt!

Do you remember when

With just the right smile

I was able to

Ignite your wildest passions?

Weekend Writing Prompt #86 – Mask

Such a rush to publish, I forgot to insert my intro!!

Christmas is around the corner and for many, it is a difficult time… I hope for all, to find the joy again.  Thank you, Sammi Cox, for hosting this weekend prompt.  Today, I felt inspired….

‘Tis the time of year where masks are found aplenty

To hide the pain

To pretend joy

To make believe

To soothe others

To convince one’s self

To fake it till you make it

 

The day comes

You remove it

You no longer need it

Sun behind cloud

Weekend Writing Prompt #82 – Illumination

Couldn’t come up with anything overly amazing for this prompt so I decided to kill two birds with one stone: share part of my evening with my friend, Cathy, and do this word challenge.  A silly little poem. (I’m not what one would say, fabulous, with the rhyming poetry – especially when I only have 73 words to play with.)  This kinda sorta got the job done.  I wanted to share these murals with Resa over at Graffiti Lux and Murals and I think I’ll find an excuse to go back there during the day because these two works of art deserve daylight, no snow falling and better angles!

Thanks you, Sammi, for hosting this weekly challenge.

Word Prompt

Illumination

Challenge

An evening with Cathy, friend since forever
Bohemian Rhapsody (again, but a pleasure)

We aim to catch the four-thirty-five
Then on for supper, after a short drive

To “Amellia’s”, on Milton
And be joined by her Malcom

A mural, so beautiful, it catches my eye
Illumination sucks, but I truly must try

A pic with my cell phone will do only so much
The snow and the light add a strange little touch

Word Prompt

Fringe

Challenge

The fringe framing my face charms you

The fringes lightly brushing my thigh seduce you

My fringe views, just enough, appeal to you

And yet, it is on the fringe that you hold me

Fringe – Water’s Edge
