  1. On that mantle sits memories. Covered in dust and displayed so proudly. Sometimes I want to take them all down, but what would I put there instead? What would I use to show where I’ve been?

  2. It’s there, covered in dust and waiting for a touch. I ask where the pictures are, where the vase is, where the coins are that once laid there.

    She pauses and shakes her head. “Gone,” she whispers.

    I squint at the layer of dust, shifting slightly now that we’ve turned on the fan. The place smells of old memories, and lost friends. I run my fingers through the dust, sending it spiralling to the floor.

    It gathers, and is done, and she turns “Let’s go.”

  3. I placed my heart on the mantle
    Next to the photo of us at the park
    It was sitting there like a trophy
    Gleaming, waiting to be admired
    My love was on display for all to see
    No shame, selfishness or vanity

  4. a mantle is something a man puts on. it reminds me of Joseph in the Bible who was given one (i think). it also reminds me of Moses’ mantle and the one that elijah wore…i can’t think of much more except they probably had good style then.

  5. The russet bricks were stacked high, their staggered, rectangular forms interspersed by strips of cinerious concrete, their mass interrupted only by the cavernous maw of the fireplace. Resting upon the ledge on top, as elegant as if standing on a pedestal, a little porcelain girl stood tall amidst a row of knicknacks, her cheshire grin inspiring a nervous giddiness in any admirer who stared too long at her pallid visage.

  6. pictures on the mantle of things we all did together cannot contain the memories that you and I share. I love you more than those pictures will ever show anyone. I may not be the perfect daughter to them, but this shock collar has got me reeling. I miss you. Please come back.

  7. The mantle of age sits on my shoulders like an ever-increasing weight of the world, a heavy cloak that I can’t shake, much as I’d like to. Age becomes that nemesis that I fight against, all-encompassing and flowing over me ever more each year. This mantle is not one I wear willingly, but rather have donned against my will.

  14. the mantle is dusty. it’s full of memories. christmas stockings hang from it waiting for gifts from St. Nick. Lucy lay in bed, anxiously awaiting morning. Candy, toys, fruit, what would be waiting for her when she woke up? She tossed and turned as if morning would never arrive.

  17. Up on the mantle there is a free speaking knife, an unintelligible feeling that I grab by the handle and thrust into the abdomen of my enemy. I am savored, I am liberty, I am destruction in its purest form. Only the mantle will show me the way. Only the mantle will decide where I go.

  21. A mantle of fog enveloped the mantle of the colorful bird
    as it flew over the mantle of the massive fireplace
    in the castle ruins,
    sparking a flame in my mantle.
    Shivers ran up my spine as I wrapped myself in the scarce mantle.

  22. I’m not really sure what is mantle, but then again, I’m nto sure about many things. I don’t speak English as good as I should after that many years of learning it. Also, I don’t see why is “I” capitalized, and there is no form of you which you use when you respect someone. English is silly.

  23. Part of the earth but also something to do with God – I think it’s His robe or something. In addition, there’s something to do with heating elements – that’s it, it’s the bit on a gas lamp that glows when you light it. The mantle. Superb things those gas lamps.

  36. My favorite book when I was a child was called Christmas on Exidor street. It is about a woman who has some very odd people knock on her door and ask for shelter on Christmas eve. She can’t turn them away, so she comes up with some very creative places for them to stay the night. I remember that the wives of 2 different ministers sleep on her mantles. I know that it’s random, but what else can i say about that word?
