Sunday Writing Prompt, July 4/21 – Treasured Trash

Welcome back to, Sunday Writing Prompt!

What constitutes “trash”? Dirty diapers…yes. Rotten food…should probably be composted, but yes, something to discard. What about that barely beaten sofa you upgraded? Or the vanity that still holds a breath of life, but needs a little TLC. Grandma’s attic…everything needs to go! Garage sales and thrift shops are all about turning one’s trash into another’s treasure. Even a spouse, who their significant other decided to “discard”, but became the most valuable person in YOUR life! It really comes down to perspective…

I’ve been looking everywhere for this!”

Paid $3.00 for a painting I discovered was worth $50,000!”

He is the best Stepdad I could have ever imagined!”

Adopted this puppy from the pound, and he became my best friend.”

I encourage you to write about “trash” that became treasure. Base it on personal experience, or compose something entirely fictional. All is welcome 🙂

Today’s Sunday Writing Prompt is: One Person’s Trash

The Rules:

  • The style is completely open; poetry, prose, even a single sentence…Go where the prompt takes YOU!
  • Keep your submission to 500 words or less.
  • Post it on your page, and TAG it Sunday Writing PromptSWPMLMMMindlovemisery’s MenagerieAnd be sure to leave a link or pingback in the comment section below.
  • Feel free to use my photo for inspiration, or as your own cover image.
  • Please have your submissions in by the END OF EACH FRIDAY (Pacific Standard Time). Every Saturday, I will post a “standout” piece in a post entitled, SATURDAY SPOTLIGHT. Bear in mind, it will be based on my personal opinion. If you are not chosen, that does NOT mean your piece was not superb.
  • Be creative and HAVE FUN!

Please, take a moment and visit last week’s selection for the Saturday Spotlight series, Leaking Ink, https://leakinginkblog.wordpress.com/2021/06/21/the-nanny/

      My MIL loves thrifting old ceramics to smash them up and create art. Great example of the subject matter 🙂

    Ah sorry I couldn’t take part in this one; I was at the hospital most of Sunday, Monday and Tuesday last week. The little one had a particularly aggressive strain of stomach flu and had to be on IV because he couldn’t keep food or fluid down. I’ll catch up on the reading too. That was an awesome prompt again 😄
