November 28, 2019, prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less), write a story about winners. Who are they, what’s the mood, and what did they win? Express emotion or subdue it. Go where the prompt leads!

 

 

I couldn’t win a raffle,

if I bought every ticket, they have for sale

The prize is a 4-inch gold cup and

It would have been nice to win

Alas, I tried to cheer myself up

with a stroll around the charity shops

with ten to search through

I stopped for lunch in Poppins

Opposite is the Heart Foundation charity shop

In the window, I could see a small cup

Nipping out to take a closer look

Hidden in the corner, I found it

Green glass, dark rim, orange base

At last, I could declare myself a winner!
