Saturday Free For All #10

Today, for my prompt I am using words from my favorite poem by Emily Dickinson.

Because I could not stop for Death—
He kindly stopped for me—
The Carriage held but just Ourselves—
And Immortality.

We slowly drove—He knew no haste
And I had put away
My labor and my leisure too,
For His Civility—

We passed the School, where Children strove
At Recess—in the Ring—
We passed the fields of Gazing Grain—
We passed the Setting Sun—

Or rather—He passed Us—
The Dews drew quivering and chill—
For only Gossamer, my Gown—
My Tippet—only Tulle—

We paused before a House that seemed
A Swelling of the Ground—
The Roof was scarcely visible—
The Cornice—in the Ground—

Since then—'tis Centuries—and yet
Feels shorter than the Day
I first surmised the Horses' Heads
Were toward Eternity—

The words I'm choosing for you to use in your poem, story, blog post, or essay are:

carriage, gossamer, swelling, eternity

I hope that these words inspire you!

Have a great weekend!

Saturday Free For All #8

Forgive me for not posting this yesterday but I spent the day in bed, depressed and in pain.

For today's prompt I decided to use another image from the Osho Zen Tarot cards.

Use the picture, or just the word Existence, or both, in your writing.

Happy writing!
