This week consider the word FLAG.
You can use it as a noun as in: “We all stood proudly beneath the flag a symbol of our belonging.”
As a verb: “His behaviour flagged him as a liability to our cause.”
Set your mind thinking on this prompt and go have fun.
The flag signalled the start of the race and the two boats sailed downstream in unison.
Other than the colours, they were identical in size and design.
At the finishing line, the white boat just tipped the blue to take first place.
The cheers rose up from the ranks and everyone congratulated the winner.
The loser removed his boat from the water, and stamped on it.
‘Why did you do that?’ his opponent asked.
‘Because second place isn’t good enough, and I could hardly do that to your boat as it won. Congratulations.’
Picking the white boat up, the winner offered it to his brother.
‘You have this one then, and we’ll make another together, then try them out tomorrow.’
The seven year old twins walked home arm in arm, always friends, always sharing.
