Changing Seasons

PROMPT: Solidarity

Over the cobblestone square my bicycle bumps,
autumn leaves crunching beneath two tyres. 

Past the little Franciscan Church, I pedal,
but I hear not the singing of choirs. 

An eerie silence echoes through the alley,
that the heaviness of my breath could devour. 

I pass the corner bakery but am greeted not be sweet scents,
rather confronted with an omen so sour. 

Across the narrow bridge, I ride,  
with no one about to listen, the stream sits stagnant below.

Empty as a blank will, I stand, haunted by the silence of the trees. 
Though childhood memories should greet me here, I feel no nostalgia nor yearning.   
Frail as an old man, I stand, blind to my...

Still I Stand

PROMPT: In Motion

Though the familiar scent of my hometown beckons me, I cannot fit back in.
Lost as a lonesome cloud, I stand, hiding from seekers of my sin.

Empty as a blank will, I stand, haunted by the silence of the trees. 
Though childhood memories should greet me here, I feel no nostalgia nor yearning.

The Language of the Heart

FREE WRITING

It was an ordinary, July afternoon in Paris. A warm breeze whistled across the streets and through the trees. Floods of people crowded the cobblestone square. The city was bustling with customers, shop owners, parents, children and tourists. I rounded the corner of a small side street, my hand tracing the edge of a stone building. The sound of wood-pigeons squabbling over bread crumbs reverberated in the air as a confined alleyway delivered me home. I was met with the...
