Things are so changed
I’m out of place
I do not recognise this space.
I try to touch
My hand through everything does pass.
It seems that I have been away
The years have gone
And left decay.
While I have lingered
Moved on while I lay sleeping.
Now what has woken up my soul
Returned me to this world?
If once I left this mortal coil
Then why am I reborn?
A call, a cry, birds circle high
A human calls in pain.
I flit and float and find the ground
Upon which wastes a babe.
Oh, what has happened here, sweet child?
Oh, why are you abandoned?
This must be why I’m called to earth
To save you is the challenge.
I sit beside you, desperate child
My presence holds off vultures.
All I can do to is sit and wait
And hope somebody finds us.
Thank God, here comes a curious man
Intrigued by nature’s hawkers
And now, he’s found you baby, so
I’m free to leave you, daughter.
Thanks to Christine for this weekly challenge.
Simply 6 Minutes Challenge Note
- Set up a timer or sit near a clock so you can keep track of the six minutes you will be writing.
- You can either use one of the prompts (photo or written) or you can free-write.
- Get ready and write for 6 minutes, that is it! Can you write a complete story? Can you think of a new Sonnet? Can you write 400 words? 400? 500? There are no restrictions on what kind of writing you do, but you should try to be actively writing for six minutes.
- After you are done writing, include your word count and then post back to this page #Simply6Minutes or include your link in the comments section. Pingbacks are enabled.
