Welcome to Writer’s Island.
New prompt(s) are posted every Saturday. Consider the prompt in depth, then let inspiration carry you. When you feel what you’ve written is ready to be read by the other Islanders, just post your link right here in the comments section at the bottom of this post. Please leave whatever expanded comment you wish as a part of your posted link. You can also reply directly to any other comment.
••> The twelfth prompt for 2010 involves the act of coming back together. The prompt is: REUNION… Is there a reunion in your future, one you have just experienced, or perhaps one you wish could happen? Does it involve old friends, maybe a lover — or does it surround a particular event? Is this sparked by good memories or ones you’d like to forget?
Maybe you offer a grand or an intimate reunion that is completely imagined! Tell us in your words (poem, prose, flash fiction, or…) the who, what, where, when, why or how regarding being reunited — include any visual image you might want to incorporate.
Relax, respond to the prompt when you’re ready — or just leave a comment to say hi! As always, welcome to the the Island!!! 😉

Interesting prompt. Reunions, it almost seems irrelevant with the invention of social networking sites. Here is my take on the prompt. I’ve called it, Free of the Past.
Interesting perspective Weasel, thanks for sharing… An old beachcomber like me has many friends that have sailed over the horizon into the sunset, so reunion has many connotations to me… 😉
Hope it fits the bill!
Thanks for for sharing Brenda… 😉
I couldn’t leave a reply on your blog because the visual verification didn’t work. I thoroughly enjoyed both of your poems.
Here’s mine: REUNION
Stan, somebody beat you to the beach… 😉

Thank you for sharing Susan, stretching is no problem — we’re reasonably flexible here on the Island… 😉

Thanks for sharing Keith, always nice to see you on the Island — and very cool of you to show us your ‘other’ island… 😉
Here’s mine; it’s not exactly about a reunion and the poems are ones I wrote a few years ago and not about reunions either, but it is kind of on-prompt.
If you think they’re kinda on prompt Tilly, then we think they’re kinda cool… 😉
