365 Creativity Project-Day 135

I often say I am very good at beginnings, but middles are a problem. Today I submit these story starters that I may attempt to develop into something more in the future, or maybe not.

I used the prompt at Poetic Asides to write the following poem:

Unstructured Mane

Hair is glorious,
Yet it can also be more
A trial for caring
When it chooses to go its
Own way without good guidance.

I wear my hair straight
Because that is how God chose
To make it for me.
Curling does not suit my style,
But sometimes I would like it.

Nowadays white threads
Wind their way throughout tresses
That no longer grow
As quickly nor as thickly
As they did a few years past.

I hesitate to
Go to the beauty salon
Because I cannot
Seem to make it understood
What exactly I want done.

So therefore I am
Convinced hair is both blessing
And unruly curse
To be worn in pure lovely
Freedom without much control.

Day Lily…




Cane Mill…


New figs…


Weathered chair…

I am grateful:

1.   I woke up fairly early this morning.
2.   I remembered to mail the power bill today after forgetting yesterday.
3.   Mom was able to shop with me at Wal-Mart.
4.   Because my order was damaged in shipping Amazon is sending me replacement books.
5.   I had money to purchase all the things I needed.

I hope your Wednesday has been especially rewarding. Take a few minutes to do something creative.

If you have anything to say I would love your comments.

Jo Ann
