Greetings, lovers of
words. I hope inspiration has been haunting your writing space, leaving you
ready to ink and share... Today’s prompt came to mind some weeks ago, when Magical Mystical Teacher posted the following haiku:
fingers framed by light
clutching an old rosary
carved of human bone
I’ve always found
that MMT has a way with short poetry. She is so good at leaving the reader’s
right, my reader’s mind)
wondering about what took speaker and subject to the moment captured in the
poem, and what might happen to them next. That sort of wondering is what brewed
today’s prompt into being. We will have three choices (choose one, choose two,
or choose all three):
1. Write poetry or prose which explores where the bones in the poem might’ve come from.
2. Write poetry or prose which shows why the subject is clutching a rosary made of human bone.
3. If one and two don’t entice your
ink, write poetry or prose inspired by the poem.
As usual, our Weekly Scribblings ask for new poetry or prose. This prompt will stay open until next Wednesday. One link per participant, please. If you choose to contribute prose, the word count should be 369 words or fewer. Let us write (and read)!
Magical Mystical Teacher, thank you for letting us be inspired by your words.
