Circuit Breaker – Weekend Writing Prompt

Title: Circuit Breaker
Source:  Weekend Writing Prompt #106 – Spin
Objective: Write a poem or piece of prose in exactly 92 words.

It was decadent, self-indulgent, outrageous even. Jeannie dismissed the guilt. It wouldn’t spoil her alone time. The world could spin without her.

The coffee shop was empty this early Saturday morning. Baristas yawned and prepared for the coming onslaught. Jeannie gave her coffee a stir, a drip with double cream. She took a sip. Her eyes closed. Sunlight warmed her soul.

She didn’t need to consider the responsibilities, the endless tasks, the mad dashes to make appointments and deadlines. For this brief moment, she only needed to sit and drink her coffee.


Keep on writing.
