January 19, 2012 Word Gathering


Margo Roby Prompt:  “The things you don’t say.”

Got nothing

Bite my tongue

Ain’t talking

Been here before

Learned my lesson

Keep it to myself

Blue berry pie

All over my face

Says it all

Clouds roll in

A new day begins


Note*  In a commercial, the Reverent Al Sharpton speaks of the children that come home from school, and find the blueberry pie left by their Moms who are away at work.  The children eat the pie and get blueberry pie all over their face.  I think I am saying we are transparent and everyone can read what is all over our face.

  1. The things you don’t say seem to be the things you really need to say..at times..blue berry pie..my favourite line..stands out like an important word unspoken..glowing..Jae x

  2. I have loved all the different responses and I like how your speaker tells a story, in your take on this prompt. The short lines and abrupt manner suit the things s/he doesn’t say.
