Creative Prompt: Tattered


Welcome to Wordsmith Studio’s Weekly Prompt!

Every Thursday we’ll post a new topic for your creative pleasure.  When you get a good flash story, memory, poem, or photo (or three, or five) post them to your blog, website, Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter. Then come back here and post a link to your contribution(s) in the comments.

This Week’s Theme is: Tattered

You can often find me at an antique shop, winding through the isles of tattered, rusted, and worn history. I love touching the pieces, smelling the books as I leaf through the pages, seeing the vivid colors and faded patina, and imagining where these items came from. I feel comfortable in these places… like I belong… like I’m home. I think it’s because I feel a lot like those objects, falling to pieces yet beautiful in it’s very own way. I feel tattered, but still worth someone’s love and attention.

What is the first thing that forms in your mind when you see/hear that word? Is it an object that you think of? Does it evoke a feeling within? Or do you associate that word with yourself as I do?
