not long ago
brown eyes were turning blue

those days now over
honeysuckle back in bloom

Prompt: Small stones:
a journey of mindfulness: sound


My Response to the Prompt:

Sound of Snow Falling


birds in hiding
snow falling
crunch under foot ~ gather wood
fireplace ~ sizzle snap of flames

except once
after the fall ~ alone 94 hours
death a black hole ~ nothingness

or have the huge mental pauses may last



I don’t want to bore myself or others

with the same old thing day after day.

and leave kind messages,
