Evelyn at Filling a Hole has a challenge called The Buddha Rocks Project.
The rules are basic. 7 days of posts inspired by 7 pictures taken by Eric who also has a blog over here: Bubba’s Place.
This is day 5.
I fell to the sidewalk;
It was cold and there was snow.
In the distance was a stop sign
But I had nowhere to go
After all that crazy talk
Your words still burned my mind.
Because in winter trees die
The birds fly away.
The birds aren’t smart.
That’s all I wanted to say.
They should fly and fly and fly.
Instead, you heard I wanted us to part.
I’ll need to find a summertime
Where trees are always green;
Where birds never leave;
Where words spoken are the ones you mean;
Where having nowhere to go is not a crime;
Where I meet a girl called Eve.
