Hello, Word Artists and Admirers! It’s summertime where I live, and we’ve already had a couple of heatwaves here in the northeast United States. My cold loving dog wants nothing to do with it and refuses to walk unless it’s early morning or late evening. Even my heat loving self thinks its too much when I take myself for a walk at any other time of day.
With all this heat I decided to make this week’s optional prompt “to burn”. What comes up for you when you hear this phrase? Let us know in either prose or poetry form, fiction or non-fiction. Just be sure to keep your prose pieces to 369 words or fewer and one entry per person please.
Next week Rosemary will suggest we take a bit of inspiration from dsnake1's poetry. He recently wrote about cooking a poem. How else might you craft a poem or story - gardening, sculpting, building, knitting, raising it like a child …?
