Journaling Prompt #20 – Write A 25-Words Poem About Connecting

This is a lovely project initiated by Liz Strauss which I have stumbled upon on Amy’s blog.

Memes are a great way to dissolve a writer’s block. The rules and the structure of the meme act as a guide. It shows you the way that crosses the block and helps you create something new. Usually after you have created something – from start to finish – the dam is breached and an avalanche of ideas comes through.

Try that, it’s exhilarating.

Going back to this meme’s subject – “Connecting” – it is a great subject to dwell upon by itself, whether you are tackling a writer’s block or not or whether you are into memes at all.

The rules are: (As stipulated on Liz’s initial blog post)

  1. Think about connections, connectedness, being linked together, synchronicity, serendipity, community, oneness.
  2. Write a sentence about it.
  3. Count the words you have written.
  4. Edit the sentence until you have 25 words exactly. Notice how your idea changes as you edit and how your feelings change with each rewrite.
  5. Add a picture if you can.
  6. Post your 25 words on your blog by October 16th.
  7. Link back to Liz’s post.

My 25-words:

When you are far away
and out of my reach,
I know we breathe the same air
and watch the same sky;
I’m happy again.
