It’s been a long time I haven’t written to Wordsmith Studio creative prompts. Here I go again, waiting for spring.

the end of snowy days,
almost with fear,
I strain to hear what’s behind my door
Petrified by the pictures
I draw for tomorrow
Steadily falling asleep with the images
sorrow will draw for me
spring can be deadly
April can mark the spot
of disentanglement,
and disbelief.

It’s a shame I don’t take part in Wordsmith Studio’s Creative Prompts more often. Here I come, though, this week. The prompt is Support.

WSS Creative Prompt: Support, 03.10.2013

Bridge Support

The wind was so high,
sand was getting everywhere,
Towels had to be pressed with shoes,
or bags
or our heavy bodies.

Our parasol was on the beach,
one of many –
red, and yellow sections.

We couldn’t raise our heads
as sand was everywhere.
The parasol just flew
slump over a couple lying nearby.

Children were screaming with excitement
or who knows what.

Who will ever know?
I needed you to hold that parasol,
to hold my hand,
to press my shoulder to the
sand-covered towel
and stop my bathing top
from following the parasol.
