No One Wins Like This

The following is by Writers in the Grove member, Alex Davidson.

Don’t ignore their feelings.
Don’t laugh at them but with them.
Don’t fight but resolve.
This is how we win together.

But this isn’t how the world works.

We ignore the helpless and wicked.
We laugh at and bully those
We find different or scrawny.
We fight only ourselves.
No one wins like this.


Prompt: Cavort

A simple word led Writers in the Grove to come up with a room full of diverse stories and poems.

The group had discussed the arc of a piece and how to take it from the beginning hook, to action, to resolution. It was mentioned that it is like dominoes set to fall in a pattern, each section of the piece needs to connect to the next domino in order for the pattern to fall in succession. Each thing that happens, has to happen for a reason.

The prompt was: Cavort.

See where the word takes you.
