day 7. tremble

Today, write, paint, bake, or sing something that trembles. What comes to mind when you hear the word “tremble”? Maybe it’s fear, or cold, or trembling from a fever, or trembling with love. Maybe it’s anticipation: think of opening a present with trembling fingers. What is the significance of trembling skin? What about trembling lips? Leaves on trees tremble. Jell-O trembles. Bells tremble. Use the word “tremble” as a launching point and see what you can shake up!


Inspirational Quote: “Green was the silence, wet was the light, the month of June trembled like a butterfly.” ~Pablo Neruda

  5. A Reconciliation Situation

    When I touched the hand she extended to me,
    I tried not to notice the nicotine stains
    on her fingers.
    But something in the back of my mind
    wondered how many years of cigarettes
    did it take for the yellow to become

    When I think of her today, the fact
    that she was younger then than I am now
    makes me uneasy. How cool I
    thought I was being when
    I squeezed her trembling fingers.

    I am a little behind. This is yesterday's prompt posted a day late.

  6. Tremble... just like the first time...
