Prompt 56: Equals

Thanks to KiteHorse, who recommends "equals" as this week's prompt. March 20 was the vernal equinox, when day and night were the same length.

  1. Thank you, Kitehorse, for this nice prompt. I didn't think of the vernal equinox when writing this. I did think of the first day of spring earlier in the week.
    Instead then, I wrote of what I did think of.

  2. Great prompt all though it was very personal for me.

  3. Thanks, KiteHorse! Look forward to your offering for this prompt you birthed...

    I went 'lite' for this one!

  4. Great prompt! Appropriate but not predictable... and I had a h*ll of a time meeting the challenge LOL.

    Oh well, I gave it a go, and now can't wait to see what everyone else writes, and just want to wish all of you a very Happy Spring!

  5. Everyone's contributions are so creative. Frankly when I saw the prompt today, my heart sank. I said, "Who in the world came up with this *equals* thing, I don't like it at all". Then I saw that it was my suggestion - and boy was my face red. So then I did a haiku in a sort of trance of childhood memories viewed through adult eyes. Levittown's little boxes, all the same - and other suburban cookie-cutter developments - were actually halcyon places.

  6. Sorry I hit the enter button on PC instead of backspace. The second BD is my poem


  7. will there be a new list of prompts coming up soon?

  8. oops! i left a link for "equals" while it should have been for "smoke" . is there a way to delete the link using mr.linky? thanks.
