Weekend Writing Warriors

This is my first post for Weekend Writing Warriors (http://www.wewriwa.com/), and I’m already breaking the rules. This poem is not 8 sentences, but it was a fun little exercise, and all I had time for today. I probably shouldn’t tell you this, but it was inspired by watching a fabric softener commercial. It has no title at this point, but I am open to suggestions. 

Her bathtub was filled with flowers,

and her heart was filled with rain.

She waited hour after hour

never to come home again.

Bees flew round her head,

and landed upon her red

fingernails, but found

no flowers there.

    Welcome to WeWriWa! This is a fun little poem, great imagery. Love to see more poetry on this bloghop. I love that you took something as mundane as a commercial and got something thought-provoking out of it.

    We allow up to 150 >words< for poetry so you're fine here 😀

    Who would think one could be inspired by a commercial. but inspiration can come from anywhere, right? Nice to see some poetry on here.

  5. This gave me the feeling that she was dead, now I’m wondering about the commercial.
