Twiglet #235

A twiglet’s aim is to “prompt” a thought. 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 comments should not be expected.

  1. What is a crane but folded paper?

    There is a blade of grass on the bathroom floor.
    Why it is still there is for another day, but

    its stem end half has been bruised and wrinkled
    while the rest bows and then tapers like a wing

    To me, it looks like a black brush-drawn crane
    or heron standing at rest on the tan faux stone

    1. This is really lovely. Actually, it’s almost brilliant. It’s like sitting on the loo and contemplating the why-fors of your bent little toe. I mean that as a compliment, by the way.

    2. Like imagining what the cracks in the ceiling could be…
      only some bit of nature brought in by one’s shoe.
      Whenever I read crane or heron I think of those that pass by my bit of creek. For the first time in years I actually saw two heron (possibly a pair) last week.
      I like your imagination.


  2. Second Grade Affairs

    Susie passed a note to me
    said, give this to Robert
    Warily watching the teacher
    I casually unfolded the paper
    “I love you.
    Do you love me
    Yes or No?”
    Refolding, I quickly passed
    it to Robert
    with a heavy heart.
    I loved him, too.
