Free Write Friday #5: Word Bank

on August 29, 2012


#FWF Free Write Friday: Word Bank

OK! I know today is Wednesday, not Friday. BUT, according to Kellie Elmore’s Free Write Friday, the ‘rules’ say, “No deadline. No word limit.” With the happenings of the weekend and the week’s beginning, time has not permitted thoughts to gather around free writing. So, with a break this afternoon, I decided to check out the prompt. Oh, dear! It is a doozy. She has provided a word bank and what a strange conglomeration of words.

I looked at the words, remembered Kellie’s guidelines: Just write. Whatever comes to mind. Just write. Being the poetess, of course, the lines must rhyme. Whether the rhyme and reason go together in this one is yet to be seen by the comments hopefully it will receive. Here goes:

This week’s prompt:

Try to use all of the words. Let’s see what’s inspired…

Homeward bound
That’s what I say
As I listen to the 8-track
Along the way

Memories abound
As thoughts quickly shift
To bygone days
Of rivalry not rift. . .

. . .the coarse, stiff broom
Across the floor
Readying the room
For what’s in store

Candles were lit
As part of the show
Like a light-emitting diode
With a soft glow

Hustle and bustle
Throughout the kitchen
Ranted and raved
Good ol’ fried chicken

Salacious homemade pies
An all-time tradition
Made one froth at the mouth
Hailing its elocution

No rancid odor there
As fillings did coagulate
Only succulent aromas
This affair did permeate

My favorite, the peas
With pot liquor too
Inviting the spoon
For a helping or two

A family fling
Of cravings and itch
All came about
With nary a hitch


Whaddya say? Did it meet the challenge?

      Thank you, thank you! It was truly amazing…when I first looked at the words my thoughts were NO WAY! Then, yesterday I had a break and revisited your site. I typed the words in a vertical column and the word homeward triggered the thoughts of home-cooking! So glad you liked it and thanks again for your wonderful comments!
