Freeform Fridays Prompt

Free Form Fridays

I am trying ‘Freeform Fridays one more time to see if it takes root. The rules are simple but I’ve included lots of ideas. If you’re interested, submit your work by pingback or in the comment section below. No judgments, just sharing and exploration with a weekly roundup.

This week you can either chose from the previous words: gritty, blue, calm

or soft, rain, spirals (any two or all three words anywhere in the text)

Why not try mixing forms to find new shapes, or working with a scent or found text? We can explore and create new shapes to our words.

Happy creating, Antonia.

    A car, but calm
    as the noise carries it away
    Dampened and decorated
    By participating rain

    A world made soft;
    the seasonal response.
    Temporal spirals:
    a dance.
    Cold, with light
