I have been horrible about participating in this terrific exercise in wordsmithing the past few weeks. I swear, the heat has totally sucked every single creative juice I have. But, thank goodness, the heat broke yesterday….and so did my writer’s block!
I am talking about Friday Fictioneers run by Madison Woods from her wonderful, new website. I have missed being here! Y’all should hop on over and take a look at the other wonderful offerings by so many talented writers out there that participate. Then, YOU should go give it a shot!
So, here’s the prompt and my offering for this week’s Friday Fictioneers:
We come from different bushes
One growing in sun and light
The other in night and shadows
Our lives so different
But we chose to come together
Intertwining our branches
Marrying our fates together
Becoming stronger in ourselves
As we bring strength to each other
Sometimes we tangle each other,
Stunt growth, break a branch
But, in reality, we are pruning that which we don’t need
Making our bushes stronger, robust
Able to withstand every storm that comes
No longer separate
But one, strong tree.
