The Write on Wednesday Spark: Possessing Beauty
Write about a collection. Write about something you or ,someone you know, collects. Think about the "why" behind the collection - why is it important to collect this particular thing? How does it make the person feel to add another piece to their collection? Is the group of objects there to be seen, to be studied or simply kept together? Write a real life story or a piece of fiction. Wherever the prompt takes you...Keep your post on the short side: up to 500 words OR a 5 minute stream of consciousness exercise. Link your finished piece to the list and begin popping by the other links. Oh, and enjoy!
Haley nervously played with the charms on her bracelet. One for her first time on rollerblades. One from her first boyfriend. One for her first dance performance. One for her high school graduation. One from her sister to remind her how much she is loved. One that said "Believe, Hope, Dream". It's often a reminder of the things that are important to her in life, and she holds it very close to her heart. It's inspiration, hope, dreams, all culminated in a bracelet.

Once, Haley thought she lost a charm, and it broke her down for days until she found it lying on her dresser, where it had apparently fallen off. This charm bracelet was a gift to her during her deepest depression, in hopes that she would feel better seeing all the things she accomplished on her wrist as a reminder. It worked, and whenever Haley felt stressed, she immediately turned to the charm bracelet for comfort. She loved her charm bracelet and everything about it; it was a collection of everything near and dear to her, a collection of everything that really mattered to her. It raised her self-confidence, as well as consolidating all her life events into an easy to view bracelet that she always had access to.
When Haley felt her lowest, she turned to the charm bracelet for comfort. Sometimes she would buy new charms to add to her collection, to make her feel better. Sure, they were small, but they had a big impact for her. She loved them, and never wanted to let them go. The bracelet never left her wrist. She was attached to it, and wanted to stay that way forever....
