Thread (an acrostic poem)

Twisting herself into knots

Heather tried to bind her feelings

Reasoning while her life was unraveling

Enabled her to look at the patterns emerging

And stitch something together that was quite beautiful out of tragedy

Daring someone else to make it through the eye of her needle

Unusual Love (100 words of weirdness)

The car wept radiator fluid as it lay broken after trying to wrap itself around the tree.  The tree bent forward; its branches tenderly caressing the top of its crumpled one night stand.  Two things, one created and one grown, found a moment of love in time of tragedy.  As the snow draped the scene in a mind numbing white blanket, the only person to witness the joining of tree and car gently cooled; his last thoughts were of love and love lost.  The tree finished collapsing onto the car as sirens in the far distance wailed for the tragedy.
