  1. This could be a great writing prompt. It could go in a lot of directions.

  2. Hi WDB,

    I love the prompts and I look forward to them. They are part of my morning routine: yoga, music and then some writing.

    For the prompts, I typically write an impromptu piece. Sometimes I flesh them out. My goal is to trust where my mind goes with the prompt.

    I am enjoying your work.

    Thanks for coming by.

  3. Hi Sheila, I agree. When I saw the words I had an idea of theme so I looked for an image and lovely gray spoke to me.

    Thank you.

  4. Isn't it curious that the prompt words seemed imply flirtatiousness to us. Is that really us? We will never know.

  6. Robin and Rallentanda,

    Yes, I am flirtatious in my writing. And when I'm with friends and family, I laugh a lot.

    Thank you.

  8. I loved this. The pic reminds me of a Breck Girl from the 60s! How you get a good 3WW poem out of that handful of words is amazing, LaTonya! Also, I agree, this was a flirty little group of words, and you made the most of it. Loved it! Amy

  9. Hi Amy, to be honest, short pieces are my comfort. I had a professor who instilled in me the value of economy and the power of word choices and some of my favorite poets use short forms. Sometimes I go okay. I'm glad you think I did this time. Thank you.

  11. Thank you, Pamela. Was away this weekend for an open house out of state.

    At some point I decided to stop fighting what was a natural way for me to write. Funny, because with prose or conversation I'm all over the place, wordy. I do far more editing. With poetry I start with the distilled image, feeling I want then I fill out. With poetry economy and word choice especially consume me when during revision.

I know what I think. I write to hear what you think. Let's talk about it.
