How To Plant a Story Seed

This little poem is linked to week 77 of Saturday Centus. The prompt is in bold. To read other little stories, just click here.

I clasped my hands loosely
Ah loosely…just so
It’s so hard not to clench them too tight
And I shut my eyes closely
Ah closely…just so
It’s so hard to not reach toward the light
In the quiet of this moment
In the quiet of the dark
I saved all the moments
I was sure to forget
I saved all the words
Even ones not said yet
I waited and waited until words outweighed need
Then I planted a little story seed
Will it grow?
I don’t know.
But I clasp my hands loosely
Ah loosely…just so.
