This is a short piece I wrote in response to the Weekly Writing Prompt 1/9/2018 on my blog. 

You a potter, create a very special jar which holds…….?

Day after day, I go into my garage and sit down to my potter’s wheel and create the same types of cups, bowls and plates that are special orders from all over the world.

And everyday I leave a small amount of time to work on the special goblet I have designed for something and someone very special; but I don’t know for who or for what yet.

The design just came to me one day. It is nothing elaborate but very detailed and unique.

This piece has to be perfect in size and shape and design and most of all, “Be Ready!”

As I work and I think about what I am crafting;

“Do you think that one day someone will hunt for this as they do now for the Holy Grail?”

I have been writing in journals, diaries, poems and creating short stories since my teen years. Writing became a way to release the never-ending ideas, thoughts and sentences that rambled around in my mind; waiting to find a place in a story.

  1. Hi Monna, I’m sure that day will come. Treasures, like beauty, are unique to each of us…and it just takes the right person to come along and appreciate the value of our creations. Though there is always value there, our eyes sometimes has to be opened to it. Good writing prompt. Is this true?

    • Hi Brenda, LOL, No it’s not true just my imagination. Just another one of those prompts I read and the words just started flowing. 🙂
