February Week 1

I know, I know there are a few days of January left. I know February isn’t Spring. But, for this writing prompt, look forward- past the frost and frozen fingers, towards the blooms and blue skies of March, April, May….

I don’t condone wishing life or time away, but there’s a lot to be said for looking forward to something.

So, picture one of your favourite places to be when the sun is a bit higher in the sky and the colours are a bit less muted.

Write a scene in the Spring or a poem on a rose or a warm day.

February Week 2 Prompt.
Spoilers ahead.

Lyrics from @encantomovie
Liiiiiin! 🥰

If you don’t know, now you know- I love this film. The character Isabella has the power to create blooms on demand.

Her volta in the film happens when she accidently creates a spikey cactus instead of her usual perfect rose.

For this prompt:
Write what you’re feeling in the moment.
Forget perfect for a while and see what else you can do.

It’s beautiful and it’s yours.

I just made something unexpected
Something sharp, something new
It’s not symmetrical or perfect
But it’s beautiful and it’s mine
What else can I do?

Bring it in, bring it in
Good talk, bring it in, bring it in (what else can I do?)
Let’s walk, bring it in, bring it in
Free hugs, bring it in, bring it in

I grow rows and rows of roses
Flor de mayo, by the mile
I make perfect, practiced poses
So much hides behind my smile

What could I do if I just grew what I was feelin’ in the moment?
(Do you know where you’re going? Whoa)
What could I do if I just knew it didn’t need to be perfect?
It just needed to be? And they’d let me be?

A hurricane of jacarandas
Strangling figs (big), hanging vines (this is fine)
Palma de cera fills the air as I climb
And I push through
What else can I do?
