Sometimes a prompt leads me places long forgotten: remembories triggered by a word, picture, challenge.
mlmm saturday dip’s opposing forces is an example. The prompt involves two sets of opposites — opposing forces — around which to write a poem, a story, blitz fiction or a piece of a longer story arc.
The sets of words: mountain and valley; foreign and native jogged musical remembories: “One Tin Solider” (which I remember as the theme from the movie “Billy Jack,”) which definitely features geography and Bob Dylan’s “I PIty the Poor Immigrant,” which is a spin on native and foreign.
I have several prompts spinning in my cranial centrifuge. Not exactly sure what mélange might emerge, if any at all.
