7/20 Weekly Creativity Challenge and New Prompt
Another beautiful poem from Cathy Coley for our “finger prints” challenge. This is so lovely, Cathy!
I awake in the daylight
still feel them,
a reminder of our love
after the arguments,
the taking for granted.
In the stillest hours,
he leaves finger prints
all over my skin.
From me (Kelly Warren): “It will be gone before you know it. The fingerprints on the wall appear higher and higher. Then suddenly they disappear.” Dorothy Evslin
I stumbled across this quote on a friend’s Facebook page and the clarity and truthfulness of it has haunted me ever since. I thought this picture I took of my girls, running away, suited it well.
This week’s prompt: “rushed”
Use the prompt however you like – literally, or a tangential theme. All media are welcome. Please e-mail your entries to firstname.lastname@example.org by midnight eastern time on Sunday, July 26, 2009. Writers should include their submission directly in the body text of their e-mail. Visual artists and photographers should attach an image of their work as a jpeg. Enter as often as you like; multiple submissions for a single prompt are welcome. There is no limit to how many times you can win the weekly challenge, either. (You do not have to be a contributor to this blog in order to enter. All are invited to participate.) All submissions are acknowledged when received; if you do not receive e-mail confirmation of receipt within 48 hours, please post a comment here. Remember, the point is to stimulate your output, not to create a masterpiece. Keep the bar low and see what happens. Dusting off work you created previously is OK too.
