EDITED - 1/25/09
Just got an email from the assistant editor on the Six Word Memoir site. They will be featuring my submissions on the front page for at least a day. YAY!
from a prompted writing exercise at A Cup of Words, Monday night Writers' Group
Six Word Memoirs - Not Quite What I Was Planning
I free wrote several of these, then arranged them into a couple of makeshift poems:
Stranger stares back from my mirror.
I look younger and feel older.
I am learning to let go.
When I wasn’t looking time flew.
Wonder whether you really see me.
Give me pen and I’ll write.
Ink like blood flowing from pen.
A blank page is an invitation.
Stories captivate and draw me in.
I hear voices, I talk back.
Hot tea, black ink, white page.
I like words better than candy.
Words like succinct make me smile.
My muse hates deadlines. She hides.
One more line, and I’ll stop.
