Free Write Friday #27: Word Bank

on August 3, 2013

Welcome to Free Write Friday. New here? Read the intro. Everyone else…let’s go!

free-write-friday-kellie-elmoreThis week’s FWF prompt is a word bank:

blanket – falsetto – cumbersome – cinema – coins

You may use one or all of the words. Don’t force it. If only one speaks to you, that is your muse. If you can use all of them with little effort (no overthinking it) then let it flow. Look forward to reading you.

Come Play With Me!

Narrow prisms of light
Beaming through window panes
Beckon come play with me
Outside in nature’s games

Song birds of the city
Above the noisy streets
Croon soulful falsetto
In half and quarter beats

Five o’clock rolls around
The cinema draws a crowd
Ten dollars plus a few coins
The cost to be allowed

Cushioned rocking chairs
Face an indoor screen
Cola, candy and popcorn
Monopolize the scene

Do I leave the office
Moving from indoor to indoor?
Don’t go from inside to inside
My heart and mind implore

Leave behind, forget
Cumbersome daily chores
Grab a blanket and basket
Enjoy me, the great outdoors

Narrow prisms of light
Beaming through the trees
Beckon come play with me
Come on outside…Geez!

Nostalgia seemed the only way to go, Kellie. Once again, I tell a story maybe only an old guy could. (Pssst. second piece of the day, too.)

Hi Kellie

Hey fellow FWFians, here’s my take on this week’s prompt. What a random choice of words Kellie. Quite delightful! Luckily I managed to fit all the words in my poem.

Kellie … I love these word banks! … Please enjoy this ever-so-brief “Night at the Opera” … Cheerz!

    Just to escape, (for me) escape into the night of another world. You’ve all the moments here, what it’s like to play, as it plays out…

    After returning from the cinema removed six gold coins from his pocket and crawled into bed, covering himself with the cumbersome blanket. “Jimmy!” His mother called in a the high, falsetto voice he despised.

    Oh nice! Very upbeat and playful piece 🙂
