Abruptly, as I begin this verse, and
slowly, as it frames the page,
It sits beautifully.
The expression of words curve delicately into a prompt.
Prompts are delightfully fun and quirky and thought-provoking.
Yet, truthfully, a prompt can instill the cold, clammy sweat of writer’s block.
I calmly think of what to say, what to do next.
This should be wickedly fun,
not wearily woesome.
I absolutely must act briskly and quickly to spin a yarn
For I shall be somewhere soon,
outside with a beer in hand,
and a cheerfully present friend with which to share.
To be brutally honest, I don’t know when I’ll be back,
and I don’t know what condition I’ll be in Saturday morning.
Most likely, wickedly tired.
And painfully sober.
Anyhow, I literally have mere minutes to finish this prompt,
to expertly maneuver my way to the finish line.
Abruptly, this ends.
Stream of Consciousness Saturday is the brainchild of author Linda G. Hill. Every Friday, Linda provides her followers with an inspiring blogger’s prompt. It can be a word or words and sometimes bonus points are involved (my favorite). Linda asks us to write without editing, other than correcting spelling errors.
Just go with the flow.
