Friday rolls around again and it’s time for a freewrite – Click the button if you’d like to join in on Kellie’s Blog.
Your FWF prompt this week is a word bank…
lazy – rain – perspective – glint – somber – trinket – static
You may use all seven words if they fill in naturally OR you may work off only one if it better feeds your page.
A glint of light
wakes you through the blinds,
You edge a lazy arm out from under
the covers and reach for the radio
Static noise invades your bedroom
as you roll over and turn the tuning button
You may as well get up now.
You take a somber walk to the bathroom
wishing your bones would wake from
the stiffness of the night.
You pull your charm bracelet off
with trinkets your lover bought you
a silver ballet shoe, a rose, a minute key.
You leave them on the sink and
walk under the water of the shower.
You feel the gentle water like rain
on your skin,
washing away the night’s perspiration.
Stepping out of the shower,
fresh, wet and clean
you see the day from a new
perspective as you wrap yourself
in a warm, fluffy, blue towel
