3 Objects

A Lesson by Ria Vero Benthil

"Select 3 Objects from your surroundings."


Prompt 1:
Three Objects Prompt

Figure 1:  This is a photograph I took of my clock.

Tuesday; October 11, 2015

Step 1: Select three objects from your surroundings.

For instance, here are the following objects in my office:

- candle
- clock
- mirror

Step 2:  Write a 3-5 sentence poem or story about these 3 items.

For instance, here is an example of a story I wrote with these three items.

The metallic leaves adorn the outside of the candle.  It flickers along the wood paneled walls, trickling behind a broken cuckoo clock.  I gaze into its glass face; its hands point at the same Roman numeral, XII.  Bloodshot eyes emerge from the mirror that hangs above my bed; the blue fairy smiles down upon me as she remains perched on the border of my reflection. 

Step 3:  Share your poem or story with an audience.  It can be through social networking or in person.

For instance, I would love to read or listen to responses to this prompt.

Thank you for taking this course!

The room has become dark after the moonlight hid behind the dark clouds. The candle which was at the backside of the clock, soon lit up with fire. I see the reflection of it on the broken mirror behind it.
