Writers’ Pantry #87: Words Never Die

“A word is dead when it is said, some say. I say it just begins to live that day.” And since I agree with Emily Dickinson, dear poets and storytellers, lets say our lived words in ink (pixels?).  

The Writers’ Pantry is open to all! Let’s share poetry or prose that is new or old, fiction or nonfiction, short or longish (if choosing prose, your word count should be 369 words or fewer). One link per participant, please. This prompt shall remain open for a week. Write on!

- on Wednesday, our Rommy would like us to write about one (or more) things we might find at a fair. Possibilities include (but are not limited to) cotton candy, Ferris wheels, ring toss, merry-go-rounds, corn dogs, and roller coasters.



  1. Thanks for this delightful prompt, Magaly. Can there be a poet who doesn't agree with our beloved sister/ancestor Emily? It's good to be reminded and bring that truth to the forefront of our minds again.

    And oh, how do you make those word graphics, please?

  2. Happy Sunday. Delighted by the beautiful words of Emily Dickinson


  3. Good day, Poets and Storytellers!
    Wow, what a great line by Emily Dickinson!

    1. Great day to you, dear sir. And I completely agree. It's an excellent line.

    2. I'm arriving late to post and comment. I hope everyone had a great Sunday and this week brings brilliant words and all good things!!!
