The Voice of Things

Just a ragged wind,
whining about
the passage of time,

lusting for things as they once were,
its fingers on their skin, its voice
their voice.

GloPoWriMo Day 5 - the procedure is a little involved, but you can find the prompt description here.  Inspired by this photo (All Rights Reserved, so I couldn't embed) and this poem.


  1. I think you did a fantastic job keeping with the prompt and keeping true to the original form of the poem.

    1. Thank you. This was a difficult one. I am jealous of the original, it is so beautiful.
