Blankness would devour her.
She could not abide the thought
Of no children in the house
The pink impatiens by the front door
Were hidden, then gone…never mind
I wrote this for the Trifextra Week 56 Writing Challenge. Here are the instructions for the prompt:
This weekend we are playing another type of word game with you. Below are photos from the 33rd page of one of our very favorite books, Elizabeth Strout's Olive Kitteridge. What we want you to do is to scour the page (click to enlarge), choose 33 words, and reshape those words into a piece of your own. Your piece does not have to tell an entire story. We just want to see what you can do with this particular word bank. Punctuation is up to you. Use whatever you need, whether or not it appears in the photos.
Your comments are appreciated.
