PROMPT: Poetry and Spoken Word Competition 2018

One last month in the journey of a lifetime; a final stepping stone on the path to the next step on the next path. A new journey. 
A month away.

Excitement bubbles and mixes with oozing fear and the salt of my tears, 
Creating a turbulent witches’ brew of concern and anticipation,
Poured into a glass of sentimentality with a straw striped by the alternating colors of the past and future. 
This drink is my caffeine, 
Keeping me awake far...

A Simpler Time

PROMPT: I Remember

FREE WRITING

Just a moment of silence, as brief as a kiss. 
The world around is in a riot.

Standing straight and tall mid June, 
As inaudible as the smallest peas
awaiting their annual prune
Then existence would be crystal!
As precious as a gold bar. 
There would be no use for the pistol,
