Gold Water: Three Things Challenge, #writephoto, FOWC with Fandango

Devon knew the history of the stone sculpture, but he wasn’t sure he trusted the tale. Back in the day there was the belief that in winter, when the ice thaws, the water that falls from the sides of the rock was infused with gold. The story was nice but if the tale were true then the ink upon the rice paper which is laid under the flow would also turn gold. That has never happened, at least in his lifetime.

Thursday Write Photo: Shimmer

Our Love 

As I sit and I ponder all of my days 
thinking about all that I do. 
I think of ideas and all of the ways 
I show all my love to you. 

So here I am now at the edge of my life 
wondering where you will be  
when I think of you there being my wife 
You’re a spot on the shimmering sea. 

Your lights there to guide me but just for today 
and for all of the days yet to come. 
Your love with give me a reason to stay 
The strings of our love I will strum.  

Thursday Photo Prompt: #writephoto

Task: Write in any form, using the photo as inspiration for you piece.

Walking to the flames 

As I walk toward the flames 

I remember the names 

Of the people I know 

And the places I go. 

I think of the words that some people say 

To make it a good or a really bad day. 

Do I listen to them with their negative views? 

Do I compare them to politics seen on the news? 

It is all in my hand  

Which way I will stand 

To see my way through 

A day without you.
