I just wanted to let you know
I’ll be visiting you today.
Don’t worry if the words
Get muddled up, just text.
I know your fingers can’t type
But I need your words – any words.
Did your words go the same way
As your memory and your dignity?
I love you Mum.

My response to Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie Writing Prompt: January 8th – SMS
Oloriel is our host this week and she has challenged us to do something new and modern that we are perhaps not quite used to: to write a piece composed of text messages. She has given us a few ideas to get us going: a poem, in which each stanza is a text message; flash fiction or a story, in which the narrator is telling the story to someone via text messages; using text messages from our own phones as an inspiration to write; an anecdote or real life story involving text messages; a text message sales pitch for the year 2086 or send a text message via our blog posts and encourage visitors to ‘message back’ and see what we can compile!
These are just ideas and we are free to interpret the prompt however we see fit, as well as participate with any creative media/writing/voice that we have.
