Prompt 21: Rest

Thanks to the Manic Gardener, who recommended this week's prompt of rest.

“Take rest; a field that has rested gives a bountiful crop.” (Ovid)

“Sometimes the most important thing in a whole day is the rest we take between two deep breaths.” (Etty Hillesum)

  1. I'm still working on a 'catch up' post with the last three prompts, but I've managed to create TWO for this week's theme ... one on each blog. 'Rest' isn't something I've had a whole lot of lately for sure ;--)
    Hugs and blessings,

  2. A great prompt, rich with meaning. Thank you!

  3. Thank you for the inspiration!

  4. I really enjoyed this prompt. Thanks for the inspiration.

    PS: Anyone having photo issues with WordPress? My photo header has disappeared. ;<(

  5. Thank you for an inspiring prompt.

  6. Thanks for another great prompt. I have posted a fresh response, just for you.

  7. This was just the prompt I needed. Thank you!

  8. By coincidence I wrote a limerick and haiku about vacations and rest this week. In fact, it's a
    vacation verse prompt.

  9. I'm a complete novice at writing poetry, but I am looking forward to doing this.

    Thank you for this site!

  10. As a new mum, I have to ask, rest, what's that?!
