Sweet as honey

bees on pink milkweed

Lies, sweet as honey,
Drip from her sanguine lips.
Lies that loop through your brain
Like a bad love song,
To finally lodge, heavy as a stone,
Underneath your heart,
Cold and immovable.

The Trifextra challenge this weekend is: 33 words, 30 of your own and three of the following: topple, paradigm, underneath, nerve, honey and/or loop

I believe all good fiction includes an element of truth, and all good photography includes an element of fantasy. In this journal I hope to give voice to the stories swirling around in my head, and to capture the images I see through my camera’s lens.

  1. I loved this, and especially the bee, preparing to produce more honey! I too, find inspiration or illustration for my writing, in photography. I don’t know what comes first for you, the chicken or the egg, but it works!


    1. Whenever I have a writing prompt, I always go to my photo library for an accompanying image. Many times, if I don’t know how I want to use the prompt, the photo sparks an idea.

      It definitely is a ‘chicken/egg’ kind of thing.
