Editors’ Choice for December: Foremother’s Rondel by Merry Chase

Published on Monday, January 6, 2014 by

Each month we select the best 15-minute Writers’ Dash submission made through our blog comment system or through our submission page. This a timed challenge and is more demanding than it appears. The writer has to organise thoughts, ideas and words into a presentable package in a mere 15 minutes.

The winner for December is Merry Chase for the whimsical Foremother’s Rondel.

Hand me down
your old kettle
battered metal
copper brown.

Wedding gown
when I settle;
hand me down
your old kettle.

This old town,
your home shtetl,
dry rose petal,
hand me down.
