It’s been a couple of months since I participated in the AW Blog Chain (I’ve been busy!), but when I saw this topic, I couldn’t resist! The challenge is:
If you had to pick one color, and one color only, for an aspect of your writing, which one would it be and why?
Props to Aheila on another wonderful (and challenging) Blog Chain subject! I am only the fourth blogger in the chain, but I already have three incredible blogs to follow!
I could have gone several directions with this blog, but I wanted to choose a color that I didn’t think would be overwhelmingly popular. So here it is. Short and sweet this time around.
It is the ink of a Pentel Client.
It is the laptop, the cell phone, the television–shut down.
It is The Best of Bach on vinyl.
It is Sanka, sprawled over my feet, twitching and drooling in an elder dog’s dream.
It is the charred matchstick that lit the favorite candle.
It is the inside of my eyelids, weighed down by the obligations of the day;
and the coffee that props them open for “just a few more words.”
It is the limitless depth of the star-kissed sky and of my imagination.
It is the silence,
the waking of night.
It is Black.
This is how I write.
Please take the time to visit the other blogs in this chain!
