Winter Be Gone!

Lillian is hosting d’Verse Poet’s Pub writing challenge: https://dversepoets.com/2022/03/14/winter-be-gone/

The rules: It’s Prosery Monday at dVerse: the prompt where we write prose based on some given lines of poetry. It can be flash-fiction or creative non-fiction; cannot exceed 144 words in total (sans title); must not be poetry (no versification, line breaks, metre, etc); and must include the poetry line given as the prompt, word for word, within the prose.

“I wandered lonely as a cloud”

Resting Heart

Against the cream colored sky
Wafts of white descend
Softly caressing green hills
Swaying in the gentle breeze. 

“I wandered lonely as a cloud”
Slowly gliding along
Across fields of green grass
Prickling my skin.

I look for you in the shadows
Wondering if you are near
Hoping to catch a glimpse
Of love for me, in your eyes.

Winds pick up the scent
Of sweet lilacs
Blowing a delicate scent,
melancholy weighing down the blooms.

Time passes, skys darken
Smiles turn to tears
The sun settles below the branches
Of the pines along the base of the hill.

My mood changes
My eyes look forward, 
Ahead of me
Space as empty as my mind.

Clouds drift across a moon
Glowing in the dark sky
Guiding my strides
In the direction of home.

For me, 
Home is peace,
Peace is love,
My heart rests.

  1. So very nice to see you here at dVerse. Unfortunately, this is a poem. Today, the prompt is to write prose….as in flash fiction. The line “I wandered lonely as a cloud” must be included with the flash fiction. Please read the prompt more carefully….and perhaps look at some of the other posts that are already up….or future ones.

    I will have to delete this from Mr. Linky as it is not following the prompt. I do hope you’ll write a piece of flash fiction that includes the line. I’m so sorry….but for today, although we are dVerse the virtual pub for poets, we are writing flash fiction.
