Dear Lady Skylark - Becca🐦,
You're a golden part to the lettrs community. I don't know you well, but I do know that the instances when we have spoken, you've been Sweet, understanding, encouraging, and supportive! I just wanted you to know I'm grateful: D
Something that has transformed me as a writer, had been the challenges. They're a focal point to begin... And I'm sure others feel the same when I say, it's so great to have that decision made for us sometimes! The writer's mind is a map of incomplete roads, messy rooms, and hazardously clutter corners. Waste baskets are overflowing with crumpled paper and we get irritated. I know I'm so thankful someone suggested a starting point. These pr...

Words to be used:
* CHILDREN
* ILLUMINATED
* PERNICIOUS
* MALEVOLENT

CHILDREN are the wise ones in this world. Born untainted and pure of thought, they see honesty and friendship ahead of MALEVOLENT or PERNICIOUS intent. It's our children who are the ILLUMINATED ones.

Just imagine if we were born old and "wise" and died as children.

Consider how much better our world would be, if like a fine wine it became a better place with the passage of time. How the planet would become cleaner and more in harmony with it's self and it's neighbours in the future. How much kinder and more honest we would become as we neared our demise.

We think of ourselves as the teacher...

PART ONE

                              THE VISITOR

It was a CHANCE incident with a wild unicorn in a hay meadow, which caused her to become DEAF. A truly remarkably event in its own right, and one which robbed the child known as Gabrielle of her ability to hear. If you've ever heard a unicorn sneeze you will understand. Unicorns are not all rainbows, I can tell you! Many even claimed they heard the sneeze long before word reached t...

PART TWO
                         THE CARPET BAG

Early next morning Mr Potts called at the butcher's shop. He couldn't bring himself to hurt one of his pigs, so retrieved a pair of ears from Mr Mills the butcher. On his return home, the three of them then sat around the kitchen table and patiently waited for the return of Absalom.

At ten o'clock sharp there was a sudden rat-a-tat-tat upon the kitchen door. Mrs Potts pushed back her chair and opened it. I...

PART THREE

                                               THE MIRACLE

                                                 

Gabrielle squirmed in her chair. She felt utterly ridiculous, looked worse and knew she couldn't sing properly without her hearing. It wasn't as if she hadn't had a go, she thought. She was beginning to lose her patience.

Mr Potts was just about to step in and...

                               THE FARMYARD

Gabrielle reached up to undo the coarse blue string. Next she unwound the pink silk wrap, sticky with orange juice and the sprig of scented lemon balm and flakes of sesame seeds fell away

"The orange juice must have stuck them there pig ears to your head, my dear." Laughed her father.

Absalom took a discrete step towards the door.

Gabrielle felt her head and laughed.

"So they have!"...

Mr and Mrs Potts,

You will by now have noticed that your beloved daughter has not only regained her hearing, and therefore her ability to sing, but also has a beautiful new pair of ears. Okay, okay, maybe beautiful isn't quite the right word for them Mr Potts, but what ...

* TOUCH
* SCENT
* SANCTUARY
* RESERVATION

Within the SANCTUARY of their making,
And without thoughts of RESERVATION,
Not content with the SCENT of one another,
She stood naked before him,
Her long hair resting upon her breasts,
Smiling,
Forbidden fruit as full-bodied as a fine wine,
He thought,
As he reached out to TOUCH her.
