Black and White


Write a one hundred word story that has a beginning, middle and end. (No one will be ostracized for going a few words over the count.) the group is hosted by Rochelle, each week we find an inspiring new photo on her blog:


Make every word count.

This time I felt like writing a poem- what an adventure! It is this the kind of lyric I write in German, line breaking, playing around with words – so I hope imploringly I didn´t use any ridiculous or completely wrong phrases – comments and help with the language are welcome, as always! I hope you enjoy my first attempt in poetry here…


We were the black and

the white

the perfect sound of

our love

a warm coat in

this cold world


now the

pain rises

inside of me like

water in a swelling river

and silence

has nested in every



I believed in

you and me and

in the wonderful structure of verse

and chorus

and bridge of our life


Now our love

has fallen

silent the rooms

don´t  breath your perfume


I see my heart

lying in the dust

there is no beat no


nothing to hear





Genre: poem

words: 95

      • You are right – every week I learn a lot here. And if there is no time to write something else, I always try to write my 100 words story for FF. It´s also a kind of discipline. Reading the other stories brings so much input, week for week I am astonished about the fantastic ideas, so different, but all authors had the same prompt! Meanwhile it´s like meeting friends 🙂


      • Yes! I find that this weekly exercise has helped my overall writing. It is always a good thing, to learn to be briefer, clearer. Reading the others (I generally get thru‘ the first 50 or so, at least), is so fun and interesting! Amazing what different people take, from the very same photo. I love it! 🙂


      • briefer and clearer, that´s it. If there´d be a trash to throw in all the words, which I „cut off“ my stories – it would be more than full after writing the FF story 🙂
