Weekend Writing Prompt #111 – Glacial – by Sammi Cox


Weekend Writing Prompt #111 – Glacial – by Sammi Cox

Sammi Cox’s Rules:

The challenge is simple: each week you will be given an exact number of words you can use to write a poem or piece of prose.  You can use any format or style you like; go wherever your inspiration takes you.  The only rules are these:

  • your poem/prose must contain this week’s word.  The word does not have to count towards the exact word count total – it can be in the title, or the first letters of the lines of a poem can spell it out – you can be as creative as you want as long as it’s there somewhere.
  • the length of your poem/prose must match the number of words stated in this week’s challenge.  No more.  No less.

*continuation from last weekend and several weeks worth

Rob stands there, holding the divorce papers, and in shock. He doesn’t glance at Rhonda at all, who is still whining about how this affects her.

Both Connie and Rob turn to Rhonda and tell her to shut up as this doesn’t affect her. “Do you need a translation, Rhonda? The situation is none of your business at all.” She shut up in shock at being yelled at by the two of them.

Rob turns back to Connie and says, “please honey, I am sorry, really sorry this time and I don’t want to end our marriage. I love you. I do. It has taken the fact that I am losing you to realize this.”
