2/23/10 prompt: grey

What does grey signify to you today?

A weathered, fading photo of times long past?
The way you feel when after a week of sunshine, grey clouds loom overhead?
Does your mind drift to thoughts of that major component of the central nervous system, grey matter?
Are there are no black and white solutions to a problem; only shades of grey?

Write about what 'grey' means to you.

2/15/10 prompt: hiding

Today's prompt is "hiding." Who is hiding from you? Who are you hiding from? Are you hiding anything? What's just beyond your field of vision? If you're looking for something or someone, do you know where to find it?

2/8/10 prompt: love

Today, let's write about love. But which kind of love will you choose? Of course, there's romantic love in this week that leads us to Valentine's Day. But have you considered familial love? The love of a parent for a child? Platonic love? The profound oneness and devotion of spiritual love? Narcissism? Oh, so many loves to choose from. Which one will inspire you?

2/1/10 prompt: bud

In cold, barren winter, I'm overjoyed by the first hints of spring. Crocuses bravely peeking out from the mud; tiny buds forcing themselves to confront the chill. Today's prompt is 'bud'. What thoughts does it conjure for you?

Give yourself 5 minutes, 10 minutes, whatever amount of time you like. Then see what buds from you!
