Written for: Imaginary Gardens With Real Toads – Play It Again Toads!
This weekend we revisit archived challenges of the Imaginary Garden. This affords us the opportunity to catch up on a recent prompt we may have missed (especially from the wealth of inspirational April prompts) or allows us to explore the side bar (2011 – 2017).
Alternatively, select a prompt from the ones I have highlighted below. I have included a Flash 55 for those who like to write to that prompt on the first weekend of the month – naturally this is an open invitation to write an unprompted 55 – worder.
I have chosen Artistic Interpretations “Simply Beautiful” with Margaret, December 2014
“Beauty is a form of genius – is higher, indeed, than genius, as it needs no explanation.” Oscar Wilde
A foundation of grass
grows from earth. Flower
babies spring up lifting
faces to sun’s warmth. They rely
on protection from rock formations,
and hills of trees. Valleys vie for space,
embraced by ocean water, horizon,
and colossal clouds floating
on their own sea of sky. Layer
upon layer they support and
strengthen each other.
