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.

What is true

 

A mirror is a practical tool

to ensure my make-up is not clownish

that my hair is not all wonky

and my dress is not askew

It shows me

the external me

 

~My looking-glass~

 

Is your face and your manner

giving me a truer reflection

Your eyes glow with love and

your smile shows your appreciation

I need nothing more to know

I’m good

Shhhhh

 

Listen, do you hear?

The sursurration of the wind

plays with the marcescent leaves

 

~a soothing rustle~

 

drowning out the drone of the highway

disappearing into the wind

whispering secrets

Word Prompt

Complex

Challenge

Yes, Dale, do try your very first Puente with a limited word count. Why try when there are no restrictions? That would be too easy.  I tried, I chucked, I put into the trash… and then this morning, the words came so I went garbage picking and took it out, spit and polished and well, this is it. Thanks, Sammi, for making me work so hard!

 

He and She

 

Complex in his moods and beliefs

he accepts who he is (hard-won)

and will not compromise

 

~it is a notable endeavour~

 

to take a risk, get closer

by exposing herself, she opened the door for him

they found a love unexpected
