I accepted A Creative Dreamer's Creativity Invitation. The prompt for the month of June was "Let them eat cake!" June happens to be my birthday month so I wrote this little bit of prose in honor of my birthday this year:
my birthday cake
was made of
solid rock cliffs
frosted with sun warmed grass,
sprinkled with dainty flowers
and crowned with pine tree candles.
Pieces of cake,
giant dark boulders,
walked into the sea.
Ocean waves murmured birthday wishes
and threw frothy party favors in my lap.
Gulls danced and sang the birthday song.
This was the most delicious cake
I’ve ever had on a birthday!
I thought it would be a good challenge to myself to try a bit of creative writing in place of a stitched something. We'll see whether that's how I approach the Creativity challenges every month or whether I do something different each month.
There has been more progress on the second quilt for the Quilt Gather. I'll show it in another post.
