Micro-poetry stanza’s based on the word bank prompt below posted by Kellie Elmore (an extraordinary writer) for:

#FWF Free Write Friday: Word Bank for August 3, 2013

blanket – falsetto – cumbersome – cinema – coins


the blanket that once kept her warm
now lies still covering her lifeless form

hauntingly she screams in falsetto melodies
speaks of eternal undiscovered mysteries

cumbersome lies are slippery and hard to hold
like catching snowflakes in July or so I am told

life is a cinema that portrays the reality
shadows of the imaginings of eternity

one of many golden coins the sun brightly shines
burning a God shaped hole into our minds

  1. Never caught a snow flake, but I know here for July, it’s possible in The Snowy Mountains, up by Kosciuszko’s side. The approach you explored certainly opens the word bank up, feels like stories running in parallel, but that they come close to meeting one another but pass like two ships in the night for their moments.
