Weekend Writing Prompt #126 – Haven

The Community

Their children and grandchildren did not know the value of peace; they knew not the price of war. How ironic that the haven they live in was bought by bloodshed and violence.

(32 words)


Only those who fought would truly appreciate, I guess. I notice the plethora of “action” movies that sensationalise and glorify war or large scale fighting and I could not help but wonder – do we really want violence that much?

If you are interested, the prompt is linked below.

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.

body lives forever; the mind didn’t

100 Word Wednesday: Week 139

Image by Cyranny

Crime and Punishment

The black van has been there for three days straight.

The FBI have underestimated him – he, the drug lord who controlled a quarter of the city and over half the drug business, from smuggling to sale.

He still continues his daily business though; he even appears in the street where the FBI van is located to oversee the art installation.

His plan is to lull those agents into a false sense of security by hanging those decorations, then make a quick escape.

Of course the agents will give chase – that is when those decorations will explode, killing them.
