Ode to HandsThose that held me closeOde to Hands by Maclafel7
bigger than my head
almost as big as my head
strong, veined like a tree and
smooth botticelli hands
and then smaller
than my own
They slapped me
pulled me away
and dried my tears.
They learned to let go.
Those that fit in mine
star blast explosion caress
the first time
tender, gentle, odd-angle hands
that slid against mine
exploring each bump, crease, and knuckle
They fumbled with my dress strap
and painted my body
with the print of new palm
held me close
Never let me go.
Those that aren't
but paws. Small and furry
don't like to be touched
Those that I only
Those that my hands
pretended to love
three nights in a row
that clapped after each
on the shoulder hands
Little baby hands
Old, spotted hands
Hands with knowledge
zooming fast over a keyboard
Very thin, bony hands
that I worry to break.
that keep to themselves
8.549 hours ago.About 8.549 hours ago, I asked a boy if he liked me.8.549 hours ago. by TheWritingDragon
No, not a boy. A man. A young man, my age, with darkening hair and a teasing smile and a very kind spirit.
I don't know what compelled me to ask him so easily, but it taught me something about myself.
And I made the right decision, I think.
It gives me much pleasure to announce the winners of my Writing Contest #3!
Here they are:
Congratulations to you all, even if you didn't win. I hope that this was a good prompt-writing exercise. You all came out of it with a piece of work of which you should be proud, and some new friends
Once again, please watch and llama the first place winner, and feel free to check out any of the other contestants' pages and galleries
Thank you all for participating!

OMG it has been forever If you have joined my contests before, this one will be a little different. It's not competitive--the winner will be chosen using random.org, so it's just a chance for you to flex your fiction muscles and meet new people. I hate choosing one person above the others, so I think this will be a better way to show you that you are all winners Let's get right to it, then:
Fave this journal! (If your faves are not public, then please write a journal)
Expand upon the prompt "But it was too heavy" however you wish, using creative writing or poetry.
No more than 700 words, please!
Deadline is August 29th. Winners announced on August 30th.
Comment "I promise to watch, llama, and fave the 1st place winner" if you read and understand the rules. Once you do, you will be added
Once again, the winners will be chosen using random.org. You all have an equal chance of winning!!
