My wishes are hopeful and crystal clear
There is no mystery to what I want for this year
I want someone or something to assuage my fear
To deliver us form this firestorm before we all disappear
And that a return our world’s natural order is near
This post was written for the In Other Words prompt from Patricia’s Place. The challenge this week is to write a story or poem of five lines or fewer using the word “wishes.”
Also written for these one-word prompts: Word of the Day Challenge (hopeful), Daily Addictions (clear), Ragtag Daily Prompt (mystery), Fandago’s One-Word Challenge (deliver), Michael’s Writing Prompts (firestorm), and Your Daily Word Prompt (natural).
“I could see what was there, but what wasn’t there was what was demanded of me that I see.”
Ursula at An Upturned Soul
I saw this line in a recent post by fellow blogger Ursula, whose blog is “An Upturned Soul,” and it resonated with me. It hit home and so I thought I’d repeat it here for my response to today’s One-Liner Wednesday and JusJoJan prompts from Linda G. Hill.
Each week I will pose what I think is a provocative question. By provocative, I don’t mean a question that will cause annoyance or anger. Nor do I mean a question intended to arouse sexual desire or interest.
What I do mean is a question that is likely to get you to think, to be creative, and to provoke a response. Hopefully a positive response.
This week’s provocative question occurred to me when my wife began talking about the two of us doing something in 2019 that neither of us had ever done before. I’m curious if this is something any of you have asked yourselves recently. So the question is:
“When was the last time you did something for the very first time? What was it that you did?”
If you choose to participate, write a post with your response to the question. Once you are done, tag your post with #FPQ and create a pingback to this post if you are on WordPress. Or you can simply include a link to your post in the comments.
And most important, have fun.
Welcome to January 2, 2019 and to Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (aka, FOWC). It’s designed to fill the void after WordPress bailed on its daily one-word prompt.
I will be posting each day’s word just after midnight Pacific Time (US).
Today’s word is “deliver.”
Write a post using that word. It can be prose, poetry, fiction, non-fiction. It can be any length. It can be just a picture or a drawing if you want. No holds barred, so to speak.
Once you are done, tag your post with #FOWC and create a pingback to this post if you are on WordPress. Or you can simply include a link to your post in the comments.
And be sure to read the posts of other bloggers who respond to this prompt. You will marvel at their creativity.
