Casting Off

Each time we crown this mountain, I wonder: will the tether hold? Will I float away to nestle amongst the stars? Loft me into the sky, my love, and pull me in again.

This post was made in response to the Trifecta Writing Challenge weekend prompt, in which the editors gave us this assignment:

This weekend we’re asking for 30 of your own words plus the three following words for a total of 33 words:
Tether Loft Crown

This week’s challenge is community-judged! If you like my little piece, please visit the Trifecta site on Sunday starting at 5:00 PM US Pacific (8:00 US PM Eastern) to vote for your three favorites. I highly encourage you to read the other entries – there are some remarkably talented writers over there.

    Do you know that I drool over your words? Every single one is perfect. Though this is probably not about kids, it reminds me of the way parents toss their children into the air. With a loving touch and the security of catching them again. 🙂

      I love that the editors chose words with such flexibility – all of them work as either a noun or a verb, and have so many different definitions. It really gave us a ton to work with.
