Friday Writings #68: Light as a Feather

Hello, word artists and admirers! The winds are kicking up hard around the Philly suburbs, like they do every March. I’m noticing a lot of things getting moved around by the breezes—last year’s leaves, stray feathers, snippets for story ideas. OK that last one is just happening in my head, but I’ve come up with several fun ideas I’d like to play around with while going for a walk on a blustery day.

So today for those who would like to work with a prompt, I’m suggesting “as light as a feather.” What comes to mind when you hear that phrase? Write about or anything else that tickles your fancy and it with us. I’m taking both poetry and prose, fiction and non-fiction. Just be sure to keep your pieces to 369 words or fewer and one entry per person please.

Next week, Rosemary will invite us to write about “darkness and light.”

Friday Writings #67: “love letters to wild flowers”

Every now and again, a sentence from a story or a line from a poem finds a home in the inside of my skull. It stays there… conjuring images and crafting thoughts. That’s how I felt, when I read “Write love letters to wild flowers”, a line from a poem Marja shared a few weeks ago. I’m curious to read how the line touches your ink. 

So, my dear poets and storytellers, for today’s optional prompt, I invite you to create poetry or prose inspired by Marja’s words: “Write love letters to wild flowers”.

As always, if the prompt doesn’t speak to you, share a piece that does. Let it be new or old, fiction or nonfiction, short or longish (369 words or fewer). Add the direct link to your post. One link per participant, please. Visit other writers. And let them know what their ink does for your thoughts.

next week, Rommy will ask us to write about what comes to mind when we hear the phrase “light as a feather”.
