Spinning a Yarn

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “yarn.” Use it any way you’d like. Enjoy!


A story spun long and colourful
With yarn of many shades
Characters intricate and bright
A place to get lost in the words
And lives of others so interesting
Hung on every sentence
In the desperate need to know
Where it went to and what happened
Breath held and the mind spinning
A weave of its imaginative own
Until the knitted tale is revealed
The end found and satisfaction achieved
This talent to enthral and immerse
The ultimate goal of the writer
To stretch their metaphoric fingers
And take the readers on a journey
Away from the difficulties of life
To wish and to dream and fly
Even for the briefest moments
