Beginning To Play Catch Up

Yet another post for today in an attempt to try and play catch up with NaPoWriMo. So, this would be Day 7’s prompt which was to write a tritina. (Click the link for an explanation.) It’s fairly simple. There’s no rhyme scheme or syllable length, which makes it seem easy to write, but it’s seeming simplicity is what makes it appear difficult. Truly, the only difficulty I had was in putting the sentences together to tell the story I see in my head.

And now, I’m off to begin my day which is going to be ridiculously busy.

Happy Friday everyone!

Hospital Waiting Rooms

By Jesi Scott

 

They promised there would be no tears

as she was rolled away beyond the doors,

a hopeful smile tremulous on her face.

 

If only now he could touch her face

where once he wiped away her tears.

If only he could follow her beyond the doors.

 

He sits there now outside the doors;

witness the broken promise on his face;

the salt tracks of evidence left by his tears

 

stain her face beyond the doors, though, she shed no tears.

Jesi Scott is an aspiring writer of novels, a poet, and blogger. She has guest-blogged over at The Well-Tempered Bards, and has a post featured at For Love Of…. Jesi has two poems published in Memories of Mist, a literary anthology, and one published story in a newsletter. She is currently working on releasing her first poetry collection as well as writing her first novel. When not writing, Jesi can be found getting lost in bookstores, singing and dancing around the house, experiencing culture with friends, and generally having fun with her four sons when they aren’t driving her weeping into her closet, which she calls her Padded Cell. She loves to rescue stray bookmarks, as well as books, and has opened her heart to any and all stories needing a home. Archery is her current favorite thing ever but you might want to stand back a little as she still has a tendency to drop the bow occasionally.
