Writer's Island #'s 22 and 23



I completely missed Writer's Island last week...I can't even give you an excuse as to why, it just slipped by unnoticed. Funnily enough, the theme was "Time Travel", so I'm going to travel back in time, and post my bit here, along with this week's entry, for the theme of "Second Chance", because I wrote the following haiku and realized it sort of fit both themes:

Do Over

If I could do it
All over again once more
I wouldn't change a thing

And just one more for the Second Chance prompt:


Maybe we might have
Maybe we could have
Maybe so
But the distance of time
The haziness of my mind
Forces me to decide
That if given a second chance
Another try at us
I'm not sure I would have

There is also a second prompt this week at WI - a new idea blossoming, based on movie releases...Matinee Muse...that prompt Perspective. I have the perfect piece for this prompt, written many years ago, but do not have it with me today, so I will save this one for later this week.


Happy reading, happier writing folks!

Maybe some things should remain unchange.

Love the ambiguity of the first take. Did she give a second chance, did she not? Nice.

You certainly got a second chance missing WI last week :-)
