Twiglet #8, two views

Like folding chairs
marred from years of abuse,
they wait to be used again.

—————————————

Like folding chairs unfolding
legs scrunched to body,
newborns squeal with protest.

Twiglet #8 is folding chairs. A twiglet is a short phrase. Or a word. Maybe two. Its aim is to “prompt” a flow. A thought. The idea is to create a poem or piece of prose using the twiglet as the jumping off point – the shorter the better! New twiglet prompts from Misky appear each Tuesday — join the fun!

The Awakening

Tis a holiday morning
to stir, to awaken,
to rise from the chrysalis anew.

Twiglet Prompt #7:  “holiday morning.”  A twiglet is a short phrase. Or a word. Maybe two. Its aim is to “prompt” a flow. A thought. The idea is to create a poem or piece of prose using the twiglet as the jumping off point – the shorter the better! New twiglet prompts from Misky appear each Tuesday — join the fun!
