We are distinct
The softly spoken force of gravity, specifically
Keeps us apart
To preserve our own identity
In our separateness
We consume the entirety
You filling every void around me
And I do the same
Each in our element
When the heat causes me to rise
As you follow suit
Leaving no gap between me and you
You and me
We redefine our boundaries
In infinite ways
A gentle incandescence
A quiet bliss
We perfect the choreography
Of the moment
And are duly rewarded with eternity
Write approximately *200 words based on image of a lava lamp. Prompt from Sunday Photo Fiction. Can 93 words be considered approximately 200? I think sometimes the art is in knowing when to stop : )

I really like that. 200 is just a guideline. One person, when she takes part, sometimes only writes about 15 🙂
Thanks Al. Your prompts have served me well for this 30 day writing challenge. I was only half serious, I’m pretty relaxed with “rules” but it is a constant battle with the competitive perfectionist in me. So far I have managed 24 of the 26 days consecutively and I’m not being too hard on myself about it : )
That’s pretty good going. I’m impressed 🙂
There was one person last week, he managed to keep it at 126 words. Then he wrote a little bit more and it ended up at 1200 lol
Spoke too soon…now I have missed another day! but all good, I’ll get back on track. Funny how writing a little more can get a whole lot more words out- I guess that is what happens when you are inspired.
oops. It’s still not bad going though. I have missed a couple of days in the last year as well. Last year I missed 18 as i took time off, now I tend to take off Sundays, but do occasionally post.
Lovely. I can almost see the dancers moving across the stage.
Thanks Patrick, I’m glad to have prompted the vision in your minds eye.
