Come talk,
the last flow of coffee
drips white cream
circling rings unfolding
of fable and tales
of “used to be hope”
breathing against
the impossible bricks
standing against our world
a last surface
the probability comes: the “us” ends.
The bird’s skulls

I have never participated in a writing prompt but thought it could be fun to see what I  concoct as well as others. Intriguing.

See the prompt here:

And the list of words to use, from both sites, and

surface, last, flow, used, talk, us,
stands, hope, circle, end, drips, tales
breathing, against, birds, impossible, skull, bricks,
coffee, unfolds, comes, sleeping, white, probability

Happy writing, J

  1. For a first timer, you are quite good, Jeanne. Nice to see you over at the Sunday Whirl and Elizabeth’s place. Brenda and Elizabeth are fine hosts. Welcome!



  2. This is wonderful work, Jeanne! Welcome to The Sunday Whirl. I was hoping you’d find your way there. Your last two lines are my favorite, but I’m impressed that you fit 24 words into this concise piece and made such beautiful sense of it.
