New Way of Talking

This week, Charli Mills challenged us to consider a world without ice. 99 words, no more, no less. Check out her Carrot Ranch blog and if you can’t join in the fun this week, you can when you are ready!  Carrot Ranch Literary Community

A world without ice, how could that happen? What would cats do, with no rodents to chase? And think of everyone stressing out because they’d have to nail it the first time, because they can’t repeat anything.

We’d have nothing to toss at weddings AND Chinese food would be pretty darn boring.

Some might like it, because they could just be mean and never have to change.

Where fewer words normally worked, you’d have to say, “How much does that cost?”

With all the sage wisdom I have accumulated over the years; a world without ice, would be, cold.

Perhaps the rain hears

When we pray for some clear skies

And we get them

salad days

When they hit the floor

It wasn’t very tragic

The eggs were boiled

dirty deed

Choose to dust or write

Somehow, this doesn’t seem fair

Since I love to write

And if I write in the dust

Will anyone else see it?
