3 Word Prompt: evocative, eloquent, and ebullient
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?
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,
No prequels yet. Why not write one?
No sequels yet. Why not write one?
