Write 100 Words

100 Words…

It started as a game, a writing prompt if you will, in a blogging community by people more brilliant and creative than I. One little word. So many different beautifully creative ways to express its meaning. Once a week I went online to read works that were as varied and original as the people writing them. That community has faded but my memory of it will not. I suppose this is in part my way of honoring them and that time.

The idea is simple: write 100 words on one word. Other than that there are no rules. Join me in the word game fun or just read along. Be forewarned, most of them are silly, stupid little things written to capture the word or the vibe said word inspired on a particular day. A few even surprise and stand the test of time. I guess you can call them poetry.   

One of my favorites: Constellation for 100

Sometimes I wonder how they connect, those glistening jewels above, creating myth and legend in the night sky. Past from generations, word of mouth, we sit and stare. Each star a beacon, tracing back the years. How many pointed to the heavens, creating beauty with upswept fingers in the air? Whispered words in reverent tones, the stories around campfires told. Or lulled to the rhythm of a rocking boat, just how to navigate. Lost and found, warrior or lover, all search for the constellation they call their own. While remembering the North Star is always there to guide us home.
