FFAW – Day Dream

This week’s photo prompt is provided by Enisa. Thank you Enisa for our prompt!

The quiet water calls. Cool to the touch. The lazy stream calls. Its water caresses, draining away stress and worry. Surrendering isn’t an option.

A cataract calls from down stream. It tells takes of the water speeding up and jumping down unseen heights. The sound plays with my mind. I can feel the misty air rising. I imagine ferns and wildflowers reading fron the banks to receive its kiss. Rainbows ethereal in the sunbeams play hide and seek above.

Distant birds sing. Probably calling out to others to join them.

A blaring horn rattles me.

The same white truck is stuck in front of me. Four lanes dead stopped. Every once in awhile, we rush 200 feet to stop and wait some more. I think of waving back to the idiot with the horn. But I’m going to be with him for a bit longer.

Why do I live in the city anyway?

Butterflies sway. Images whisper from mocha pupils. Fragile dreams flash like flickering eyelashes. Sultry illusions tainted with sweat, perch on the veranda overlooking our moment of tangency.

“Have we met?” You ask.

“Oh, no” I reply.

Sunday Whirl – Desert Walk

Sands follow the boundless wind. The sound of madness powers past me. The urge to shout battles memory of the taste of the desert. At least, I can miss hunger.

FFAW – Mardi Gras

This week’s photo prompt is provided by Lavanya. Thank you Lavanya!

“Remover of barriers!” Ezekiel points to the float as the parade. “That’s Ganesh! He helps all who asks!”

“It’s an elephant. Ok a bunch of people carrying an elephant!” Matthew shakes his head and bumps his go cup against his inebriated friends go cup.

“No, really. All your problems can be taken.” Ezekiel continues after a hiccup “Its a light upon Mardi Gras”

“Dude, drink up! It’s about the party today” Matthew says to his friend “The only barriers you need to worry about are the ones between us and the ladies. You got your beads now find someone less elephant like to focus on.”

“Wednesday.” I mutter.
Like the drop echoing in a bathroom, the profane idea tie has past fails to process in my mind. My urge to twist the details leaves me transfixed.

“I’m sure I could change all of this.” my soliloquy causes a smirk.

I know when I go back in time, I’m a visitor. The updraft of hope leaves the taste of compunction. The poor fitting acquired taste like wabi sabi. Feelings enter the octagonal wrestling ring again.

Sunday Whirl – Prayer for Change

My rasping voice becomes hazy. Words folded like frozen route fall. Outside the crazy place designated home, I watch for the holy Saint Poverty to leave. The winds gusts across barren earth. Prayers fail to find ears.

Before dawn, the lonely cockcrow booms through my vanquished city of glass walls. My peccadillos were safeguarded attempts to fly above the fray. Yet you spraypainted my wall with malefactor. Whom prevaricates whom?
