PROMPTuesday #117: Your Passion

Sometimes I neglect to do what I like to do. i.e. Read a book cover to cover. Other times, I do too much of what I like to do. e.g. Write everywhere else but in my manuscript. Many times, I choose one thing I like to do over the other thing I like to do. Such as and for instance, sleep instead of watch another 30 Rock episode on Hulu.


But the ONE constant? The single thing that keeps me breathing and pulsating?




In a song, in a poem, in a joke, in a whisper, in a look.


I love these lines:


Although, I admit, I desire,

Occasionally, some backtalk

From the mute sky, I can’t honestly complain:

A certain minor light may still

Leap incandescent


And the lyrics of this song.


And the dialogue in this show.


Not the mention, the prose made poetry in this book.


Plus a million other words from a million other places.


Good God.


Words rattle my foundation.


They’re my sinew and muscle.


My vast unknowable.


Made known.


What is your passion? Get detailed if you can. If it’s reading, tell me a book that ignites your fire. If it’s people, then who? If it’s a thing…what?


Please post your submission in the comments OR post in your blog and leave a link to your blog in the comments.

    Stop. it. Really, truly. AGAIN(!) you’ve read my mind and taken one of my posts in draft and made it PROMPT. We either need to stop sharing the brain or find a way to make it pay big buckeroonies for both of us.

    I ♥ you, Deb!
