3 Word Prompt: evocative, eloquent, and ebullient

slapdashmonuments

Inspiration hits with a flash, stories written on the go. A rumble of laughter and the tale is heard only in echoes. The wind blows me in a new direction. Whom shall I visit next?


Dear!

-

You're so eloquent as you improvise in song

A rivulet of notes with the flotsam of your thoughts

Drifting down the forest path

-

I follow your stream, my feet stumbling

Over hidden roots among orange leaves.

Your tune runs in counterpoint to another melody

-

Evocative of another mood, one more deeply felt but harder to address

You don't even hear it yourself

But it makes my heart ache in tacit sympathy

-

Your expression is ebullient, bare teeth in a grin

But you clench your mind against pain in the shadows

And I think I know who made you feel this regret,

-

Brought you this new hesitation, who put the kettle to boil

For a fresh wave of tears after you take your bow

And I want to be there for you.

-

My shoulder has a sweater, a woven mass of wool

Absorbent, waiting, anticipating the weight of your rue-heavied head

You do not deserve the deep running creek

-

You should instead soar overhead with the descant

You have earned by how you treat me

Hold my hand; let me lift you back up to the skies,

-
