#FWF Free Write Friday: WordÂ Bank
Welcome to Free Write Friday. New here? Read the intro. Everyone elseâ€¦letâ€™s go! This weekâ€™s FWF prompt is a word bank: blanket â€“ falsetto â€“ cumbersome â€“ cinema â€“ coinsÂ You may use one or all of the words. Donâ€™t force it. If only one speaks to you, that is your muse. Go with it. If you can use all of them with little effort (no overthinking it) then let it flow.
haunting laughs in falsetto at the hands of fate
the world drifts by and I want to paint
life does throw curves cumbersome & hard
stuck in the mire of it all makes me tired
sitting silently under a forever blanket of gray
rain drips slowly down my face & rolls away
the cinema plays the images again and again
oh, how to walk away from long forgiven sins
a single golden coin is held tightly in my hand
its brilliant shine speaks of another land

Awesome job with the prompt! I like the way you utilized the word bank 🙂
Thank you Talicha!
Great emotion. I feel the dryness of a coin in my palm compared to the dampness around. Very good concise yet artful use of the word bank.
Thank you so much!
Great idea to separate the words into their own stanzas with their own stories. Lovely!
🙂 It did seem to flow that way, even with the micro-poetry later. Thanks!
Love it! It is great how you use all the words yet they truly don’t stick out like you were trying to get them all in. Great job!
Thank you love!
Geeze Mark — this poem left me speechless in it’s beauty — thanks for sharing.
Speechless? Really? Thank you so much your kind words are much appreciated!
Really touched me
“the cinema plays the images again and again
oh, how to walk away from long forgiven sins”
that spoke to me so deeply as I feel it so hard to let go and forgive yourself of the past. Even though I know all is washed clean in His eyes…mine are not so forgiving.
Thank you, Mark, for a beautiful piece as usual.
Isn’t that the said truth? I still hold onto forgiven sins that He has long ago washed me clean from also. Thank you Kellie!
sad truth! oops!
Incredible work with the structure, Mark, it brings the words out and makes them stand up.
Thank you Sean. That’s what I love about free write, you never know what you might get.
