I pulled these words from the movie, The Impossible. It is based on a true story about a family who survived a tsunami. When they whirled around in this wordle, it struck me that they could frame a piece about fighting fires. May the family and friends of the firefighters who lost their lives in Arizona find peace.
As always, use any or all of the words (or forms of the words) in your writing. Link to your piece, not your blog on Mister Linky and read the work of others.
See you soon,
This is very inspiring! Thanks for sharing.
Brenda–thanks for another thought-provoking set of words. I saw The Impossible last week, too. What an incredible story. It would never have occurred to me to choose words from that movie, so I’m glad you did!
Thanks! I enjoyed the movie. My husband found it slow moving… but I felt it needed to be to get to that visceral space in us. It certainly impacted me in that way.
My first time here…I’ll be back to read later today. Thanks, Brenda. And thanks Pamela, for leading me here.
I’m pleased that you found us Victoria, and ditto your thanks to Pamela.
Thank you for another fine world list that I was able to weave into my story.
As I write before I read the inspiration… I may yet return to honor the ‘fire of imagination’. Anything is possible…
My family is very much involved with the volunteer fire service an our company plans a fund raiser to aid to the funds being collected for the families that remain.
Fantastic, Jules. If your imagination gets beneath/inside/around fire, do share.
Is it just me or has anyone else noticed that dear Old Egg’s blog seems to have disappeared? Come back Old! 😦
It must have been a glitch…I found it. Maybe it was scrambled for a few hours? Bad joke, but there you have it.
This is my second time playing around with your words and I really enjoy working them into a poem. The inspiration and possibilities are endless. Thank you.
Very inspiring! Thanks, Brenda!
It’s obvious. You lit a fire under me with these words! Thanks Brenda.
Thank you for this weekly inspiration!
Thanks Brenda- These Sunday poems inspired by the words you provide have become a part of my week I cannot ignore – even when in the midst of working on the CampNaNo challenge and trying to create a singular version (that I will find read-worthy!) of two separate but linked novels on this little four-year-old girl Kaitlin (raped and murdered one summer’s day or was she?) I’ve used the words to write another poem and jump start the writing for today. Thank you again.
Thank you Brenda, you are helping me in ways you can not know. Hugs from Wisconsin,
Thanks Brenda. Happy Sunday to all.
