Welcome to another Finish-This Friday! This prompt was found on Writers Write, a fun website that provides a variety of writing tips and suggestions. If you’re ever in need of inspiration, check it out!
Today’s prompt is simple but can be treated many different ways. It is:
The first thing that came to mind is a poem, so here we go!
The candle in the window
Shines its light for all to see
So even in the darkness
The lost souls can be free
That’s really all I want to write about it. I don’t know why, but it feels complete like that. For the sake of a longer blog post, I’ll try again.
Flicker through the shadows
And shine your guiding light
As we take our refuge
And hide out from the night
From your silent perch
Keep the shadows well at bay
As we sleep in comfort
And wait upon the day
When your job is done
And the dawn finally appears
We’ll thank you with our breath
And stop your waxy tears
There you go! How would you write about the candle in the window? Let me know in the comments below!
