This week’s photo challenge is Zigzag. I took this photo on the streets of Brussels, Belgium. Quite festive, don’t you think? 🙂
This week’s photo challenge is Summer Lovin’. Two things that bring this to mind are flowers and of course, the sun! 🙂
In my creative writing course, we all wrote a peom modelled after The Thought Fox by Ted Hughes. This is what I came up with.
I stare at the blankness
The blankness stares at me
I hear the clock’s tired whisper
And my quiet breaths.
Outside, cold air ushers people inside
And autumn leaves hover
Clinging to branches for their meaningless lives
Until one falls
I stretch my fingertips
Sure I will catch it
Nearly there, nearly there
Until a gust of wind whisks it away
And it falls
And falls away.
And I look back at the page
Stare at the blankness
As it stares back at me.
