Twiglet #39

A twiglet is a short phrase. Or a word. Maybe two. Its aim is to “prompt” a flow. A thought. A memory. If something comes to mind, write. A polished piece isn’t the goal; creativity is. Leave a link, if you’d like your work read, but note that comments should not be expected. Twiglets are posted on Tuesdays.

    1. OK, we will call you Ishmael if you insist. I like the way “Call me boneless courage” is a challenge, like “sticks and stones”.


    1. I like the way you took the twiglet as a jump-off device. It’s like a conversation where something said leads to a further or different discussion. That’s what’s different about Twiglets; the idea is to go with what inspires rather than limit yourself to the phrase. Now … I’m off to read your off-the-side-some…


  1. Death lays courage
    From my bones –
    Less a man,
    and lost
    In fear.

    The iron and salt
    I’d thought was mine
    Stripped from sinew –
    That mettle
    I held so dear.
