Carry On Tuesday # 161
As a rule I give you just a few words to use in your creation. But when I found this quote I couldn't resist bringing the whole piece to the table. Obviously you won't be able to use all of it, so pluck from it what you will! Have fun!
This week we have as our inspiration a quote from Charles Dickens.
Click on green arrow
The dreams of childhood - its airy fables, its graceful, beautiful, humane, impossible adornments of the world beyond ; so good to be believed in once, so good to be remembered when outgrown.
Use as much or little as you wish then drop off the URL of your story or poem with Mister Linky. To read a few more words of wisdom from Dickens including those said to be his last, visit Carry On Tuesday Plus.

I hope you don't mind that I linked an old poem to this prompt. For a couple days, now, I've been thinking about the prompt and this poem kept coming to mind. I would like to still come back and write something new based on this quote...but for now, I've linked "Little Girl Dreams."ReplyDelete
I posted a "mash-up" of lines/themes/thoughts from previous carry-on tuesdays. Not that the quote didn't resonate, but the same images came to mind. Taking poetic license as it were.ReplyDelete
Thanks for the prompt; spot-on as always!
So many words to choose from! I used only the first four...ReplyDelete
Thanks for this opportunity to write a few new haiku inspired on a quote from Charles Dickens.ReplyDelete
Childhood is the permanent feeling of a lost innocence. Yes it is so good to remember that first age of our beeing when we are adults.ReplyDelete
