Come on people, let’s give the latest Writer’s Challenge that ol’ college try! I’ve received some that are fabulous, but, as always, I want more! Bring it on! The challenge was to write about something you witnessed. There are no restrictions as to style or form. So easy! Want me to do another one? OK, I will!

Strange land
Roman ruins, the blare of angry traffic
Seat of history, mystery and romance
Under fragrant, lilac wisteria
In the corner
Of a park
Near a pond, with a fountain, kissed by the sun

High noon:
Quacking ducks,
Happy daffodils,
Laughing children in shorts and strollers
I saw three boys beat another almost to death

Blood arcing from his face
as graceful as the water in the fountain
Dancing in the sky
Ruby droplets spinning in the sun
Crashing, splashing hard
On silent, cold cement.
Ummm, yeah… I’ve witnessed some pleasant things, too! One time I saw a proud, gleeful cat run from a lake with a big fish in his mouth. Of course, that wasn’t too pleasant for the fish. Anyway, you get the idea, right? Come on, WRITE!!! You said you would! It’s good for you! Do it!

  1. motes float in the gray ray
    from the bench, a scowl
    turkey neck folds dip and bob
    a nod, quick and bored
    the witness approachs with downcast gaze
    her fingers outline a blur with vibration
    oath taken
    seat taken
    time taken
    I become the hostile witness

  2. I did tell you I would write mine. Here is a go at it. I shall name it Mathematical Witness.

    Simple Tuesday carpool
    Is there a math quiz today?
    Staring out the window I see him
    minus all clothing
    plus 1 tangent man part
    divided cheeks as he leans over to get the newspaper
    adding to my knowledge
    but multiplying my wonder.

    Did I really see that?
