For this week’s Thursday Inspiration prompt, Jim Adams has instructed us to respond to this challenge by either using the prompt word, today, or anything else that we think fits.
Im going with the story of a man and a woman who meet and something magical happens between them. Or at least it seems that way.
Yesterday we talked on the phone for hours and it was like we’ve known each other for years.
Today we met at the cafe for coffee and it was like magic.
Tonight I’ll be cooking dinner for us at my place for our first date and you’ll be mine completely.
But tomorrow, when the sun comes up in the morning, will you still love me?
Or will my heart be broken?
Oops, I screwed up. Instead of duplicating my May 11th Thursday Inspiration post in order to create this new post, I overwrote it. And that’s why some of the comments on this post are comments meant for my May 11th Thursday Inspiration — Sea of Love post, which if you want to read, click here.
In the stillness of the night A silence so thin, so slight It hangs in the air like a veil Whispering secrets, telling tales
It’s a silence that’s hard to define But it’s there, oh, so sublime It’s a hush that’s almost palpable A quiet so calm, so comfortable
It’s a silence that’s full of meaning A pause in the chaos, intervening It’s a moment to catch your breath To contemplate life and its breadth
In the thin silence, we find peace A moment that brings us release Though it may be fleeting and brief It brings us calmness, brings us relief.
Written for Misky’s Twiglet prompt using the words “thin silence.”
Note from Fandango: Lest you think I have suddenly turned into a decent poet, I have a confession to make. I did not write this poem. I was struggling with this prompt, “thin silence,” and was thinking about writing something having to do with the thin silence of tinnitus, but I was coming up empty. So just for giggles and grins, I opened up a ChatGPT AI app called Genie, typed, “Write a poem about thin silence,” and the above poem is what the app created. I was actually impressed with the poem and decided to use it in my response to Misky’s prompt. Then I went to Bing Image Creator and typed in, “Thin silence,” and the image it created is at the top of this post. I was also impressed with the image Bing created.
Just so you know, I will never publish a post generated by AI and claim it to be my work. And I will never post an image that is AI generated without saying so.
Welcome to Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (aka, FOWC). I will be posting each day’s word just after midnight Pacific Time (U.S.).
Today’s word is “moderate.”
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. Please check to confirm that your pingback is there. If not, please manually add your link in the comments.
And be sure to read the posts of other bloggers who respond to this prompt. Show them some love.
