'The End'

Another writing challenge from Naming Constellations:

Here's the set of words I ended up with (senses vs corresponding - or not so much - objects):

Sight: Christmas tree
Hearing: couch
Smell: stereo             
Taste: photograph  
Touch: clock    

Here's my attempt to put it all together...

'The End'

The image is from flickr
 The stereo’s still ‘roasting those chestnuts,’
But Christmas photographs look stale already,
Time’s running through my fingers like Dali’s clock,
An old couch’s trying to console the needle-crying tree, 
“It’s not the end.”

Live for the Love of it,
The Happy Amateur


  1. Wasn't sure what this was about so I visited Naming Constellations.

    1. It is confusing, isn't it? Interesting, though, a very unusual writing prompt.
