Here’s my response to Sammi Cox’s Weekend Writing Prompt. This week: Zest, in 41 words. Here’s the link to the original blog post: https://sammiscribbles.wordpress.com/2022/06/04/weekend-writing-prompt-262-zest/
I usually try to take the prompt as far away from the literal meaning of the word as possible.
This time round, I stuck closer to the core… or, did I?
Less than the whole
and still so much more!
No nonsense concentrate,
wizened, almost weightless abundance:
life beyond watery fillers.
Unexplainable riches of summer’s sun
packed into dried, flavoursome rind,
kept smooth by essential oils.
Poetry, cut and scraped to perfection.
