Thursday Prompts in 55 Words


Observe something that's forgotten,
It could be a fence that goes rotten,
Do you think it's convinced to erode?
Silenced to speak by fate,
Yet, it does have a story to tell,
Look inside your heart,
Be care enough to know
that it is a piece of art,
and YOU can make it feel great.

  18. "could be a fence that goes rotten"

    Love that. Whenever I see something old and in some state of decay I think to myself "that was new once".
    Even people. ;-)
