Day 12: Cloudy Conscience

Today’s Prompt: Write a post inspired by a real-world conversation.
Today’s twist: include an element of foreshadowing in the beginning of your post.

The solitary sun was high in the sky,
With no one to disturb – the ground, it did fry.

I was, as usual, left out alone. My best friend was investing his time with his girlfriend. I wasn’t jealous although I did feel that I could have done with a better company than my earphones.

Before it realised, his glory had evaporated a puddle of water.
Thus separating the bond of water 
with the soil matter

That was when I noticed that my friend was running towards me. He admitted that he had been spending too much time with her, ignoring his friends. This seemed important to him, while she thought little of it. He decided to break up with her because she wasn’t respecting his friends.

The sun soon found he had clouds for company
Scattered through the sky – they were not too many.

Even though his decision felt resolute — I knew he was not. I could see that in his eyes. He was broken. He was not at peace with his decision. I realised that I now had a choice. Make the choice for him between his friendship with me or his relationship with his girlfriend. With that choice, that bond would be repaired and rebuilt.

The sun willed the winds to move with his complexion so bright.
And thus forced the clouds, previously scattered to unite.

And then it rained – not a drizzle, but a shower
The water pelted down to meet the soil, his lover
And the sun shone through and Behold and Lo
There appeared a beautiful rainbow.

The sun again made his way through the solitary sky
And listening to his earphones, the ground, it didn’t fry.

    1. Thanks. I liked Today’s Twist – guess that showed up.

      I have no idea whether this is an actual style of writing or if this is something new (then I’d call it either prosetry or poetrose :p)

      I need to check on that and get back to you 😀


Just type :)
