Change is in the air…..my heart made to melt with a click of the mouse…the reason follows..like knowing you’ll only see your love once a week instead of two…Trifecta has been overwhelmed, (good and bad), knocking the challenge to once weekly. I guess all I can do is put in twice the effort to a once a week post:(…I’ll miss you on the weekends;)
On to the prompt…if you would like to join click HERE:
“On now to this week’s challenge, where the word is:
by life’s trivial routine
he saw no beauty
in places once full of wonder.
Felt no warmth
as his world became shades of black, white and grey.
The Sun, once fiery yellow-orange, now resembled the snowball that was his heart.
A giant glacier in the sky freezing souls , squeezing life, stealing all beauty that the Earth once offered.
Sitting atop his office building he debated…
Live in this hell that is a cubicle…or..
“I’ve nothing to lose but sadness”.
Tetering on the ledge of the 33rd floor,
A sparkle caught his eye.
A tiny girl…across the way….warm breath blowing on a frosty window.
With her delicate finger she drew a heart.
Meeting his eyes she grinned knowingly.
His frozen soul began to Melt.
For the first time in decades,
Innocence and Beauty showed themselves.
As the Sun warmed his face,
he remembered his daughters warm loving embrace.
