my dear poets and storytellers. I hope today is being good to you and to those
you love. I also wish that some of that goodness spills over and touches those
who need it most. Life has been busy in my bit of the universe. On the annoying
side, more surgeries and tests… on the awesome side, a bit of extra time to write,
garden, spend with my family, and to properly exercise my vintage flesh and bones.
bit brings me to the motivation behind today’s topic: age and aging. We, of
course, are not required to respond to prompts. But if you do want one, then I invite you to create poetry or prose inspired by the phrase, “It’s important to have a twinkle in your wrinkle.” I’ve
no idea who authored the quote, but I bet they were magnificent.
If your muse isn’t feeling the prompt, you are welcome to link a piece of your choosing. Said piece can be new or old, fiction or nonfiction, short or longish (prose pieces should be 369 words or fewer). Please, add the direct link to your post; one link per participant. After you share your words, remember to visit other poets and storytellers and let them know what their words do for you.
Rommy will invite us to write poetry or prose that includes the word “Cake”.
