Who of us hasn’t watched a director’s movie and reacted?
The Sunday Whirl blog invites writers to write a poem or short prose using some or all of the “wordle’s” 12 word.
The timing was impeccable.
It took away my breath.
The vision bleak, but what technique –
to watch that blazing death!
Some say that it was nebulous.
I thought the scene an opaque pact.
A fiery statement upon a marble slab –
That only a soul of stone would not react.
The torch lit.
A hover of truth now seeking its lover.
Though touched as it were, and crushed –
Even Death could not take it over.
And as I imagined the Director’s final cry of “Cut!”,
Though critics panned it, the fading scene lanced my gut.
Reblogged this on Spontaneous Creativity.
Thanks for the reblog. Randy
Truly great writing!
wow… thank you. No holds barred there with that statement. 😉 Randy
Yes, it is all about impact and emotions. How many old movies have we all seen again years later and wondered why we raved about them the time!
I’m raving all the time. Randy
“a fiery statement upon a marble slab”
I see some Old Testament sacrifice going on here—perhaps rams and oxen by the dozen!
Whirling with Robert Frost
Maybe Cecille B. DeMille and Charleton Heston?
Or an indie about Cold Stone Creamery franchises? There’s a possibility of a fiery statement being made upon a (cold) marble slab. Randy
And thanks so much for your fun contributions to this week’s Limerick-Off. I hope you’ll be a frequent participant!
Thank you. Your limerick challenge was fun and I do hope to continue with it. I’ll have the limericks posted here on Tuesday. Randy
You’re very welcome. I just posted my Limerick-Off challenge for this coming week. I hope to see you there. 🙂 So glad you enjoyed doing it.
Isn’t that the way it always is Randy? I always seem to feel or see something others don’t. 🙂 Nicely done.
Veronica – You feel and see things that others don’t??????
Is that like M. Night Shyamalan’s The Sixth Sense – I see dead people…. 😉
Thanks for the accolade. Randy
