Drop me a line: It was a fine cry…

One must be an inventor to read well. There is then creative reading as well as creative writing. — Ralph Waldo Emerson

It was a fine cry—loud and long—but it had no bottom and it had no top, just circles and circles of sorrow.—Toni Morrison, Sula

Looking for something creative to do with this line? Try taking a portion of the Morrison sentence and start or finish a new thought. See what you come up with.

It was a fine cry—loud and long, the wind cold and broken against the tear in the window screen.

She looked up to see the pain pooled in the corners of their eyes, blank stares, dark brims bending around the grave like circles and circles of sorrow.
