••> The eighteenth prompt for 2010 is: IF ONLY… How many ways can one go with that short phrase? If only…: …I’d been there …you’d been here …you could have seen …I ruled the world …I had listened …you had listened …it were up to me …I hadn’t …I would have …you knew …you could see …time stood still …I could change …it had been different …I could remember — I think you get the picture, the ways to continue the phrase “if only” are seemingly endless. For this prompt, pick one and go with it.
So please consider the short phrase, and tell us in your words (poem, prose, flash fiction, etc.) the who, what, where, when, why or how regarding if only… — include any visual image you might want to incorporate, and let yourself go with whatever it is that moves you to write…
Relax, respond to the prompt when you’re ready — or just leave a comment to say hi! As always, welcome to the the Island!!! 😉
