Today’s Prompt: Go to a local café, park, or public place and write a piece inspired by something you see.
Today’s twist: write an adverb-free post.
The Familiar Stranger
I awoke late, thanks to the pressures on my blog
And raced to the bus stop – placing a jog.
Once inside, with a ticket to my destination,
I settled down for my journey to my educational institution.
I spotted an old couple sitting side-by-side
Something about their faces made me forget the ride.
Their features seemed too familiar for comfort,
I had seen them before – but where, I couldn’t report.
Throughout the journey, I couldn’t take my eyes off them
As their’s, were as brilliant as a couple of pairs of precious gems.
I still couldn’t place my finger on the familiar stranger,
And after alighting, forgetting their faces was the danger.
And as I saw a mother waving to her little child
My mind gained peace and grew less wild.
I hadn’t recognised the two people sitting together – till now
I had recognised the emotions that played on their faces – true love.
Writing poetry, is easier and faster for me. I think I am taking the easy route when I have to get done with a blog post.
And please point out the adverbs that need to be “done to death”
