Deb at San Diego Momma is still hosting PROMPTuesdays. (Sorry Deb, I have been AWOL the last two weeks or so, but I’m back this week.) If you don’t know about PROMPTuesdays, head over and check out the archives.

This week is PROMPTuesday #15: One Word Says It All

Deb’s selected topic this week: Write about deception. Whatever that means to you. Can be fact or fiction.

Deb’s PROMPTuesday rules:

* You must write your entry in 10 minutes. This encourages top-of-mind, primal thinking before the ego and judgmental brain kick in.
* Keep to 250 words or less.
* Please have fun. Don’t put pressure on yourself. Together, let’s rediscover the simple joy in the writing process.
* Post your submission in Deb’s comments OR post in your blog and leave a link to your blog in Deb’s comments.

So . . . heeeeeeere’s my submission this week:


the rings and the roses and the kiss
held the covenant of everlasting moments
like that

the revelations and the discoveries and the mysteries
held the certainty of uncertain times
like that

the joy and the pain and the triumphs
held the promise of intangible intimacy
like that

the dreams and the memories and the journey
held the rings and the roses and the kiss
like that

the picket fences and the bassinets and the road
held the truth of a life
like that

  1. OK look. Isn’t it enough that you’re beautiful, a genius, and nice? Do we *really* need to be throwing turbo talented into the mix? It’s quite unfair.

    (Good as usual, Cheri).


  2. This is friggin’ brilliant and scary good for 10 minutes. Yeah, you!

    Can you email me? I am trying to plan a gathering when Kalynne comes to LA on the 9th. She wants you there! 🙂
