April's Chatterbox topic is going to be:
Oh jolly. What do I mean by that? Do I mean the Crucifixion and Resurrection? Perhaps. Do I mean someone you thought was dead that reappears at an extraordinarily inconvenient moment? Do I mean the resurrection of old fears, or perhaps long-dead hopes? Spring is a beautiful time of re-birth, new life, and things-that-were-dead coming alive. I want to see you play this in a dozen different directions. It could be the up-sweeping of a long-dead custom, the revival of an old feud, the thawing of a long-icy relationship, the discovery of a hidden secret. So many possibilities. I cannot wait to see what you come up with. In addition to the topic being interesting (and appropriate for the month), it is a topic that ought to fit somewhere in every work in progress; though life is ever-changing, there is a rhythm to it just like there is a dance to the seasons and a pattern to the winds. Find that pattern in whatever way is most vivid, and bring your "resurrection" for the rest of us to read! Per usual, the link-up is below!
Little stones are smooth
only when the water passes through
So I am a stone,
rough and grainy still
trying to reconcile this river's chill.
