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. Thank you Sammi for keeping us coming back week after week.

His lips sardonic

he watched from his bench

the kitschy scene unfold before him

Like those endless commercials

or sappy movies

Two lovers run towards each other

(preferably in a meadow for better effect)

Their bodies colliding in a loving impact

arms entwine

lips meld

And you feel can feel that

for reasons unknown, they were forced apart

He wiped away a tear

Isn’t that just beautiful?
