A Single Golden Coin

#FWF Free Write Friday: Word Bank

Welcome to Free Write Friday. New here? Read the intro. Everyone else…let’s go! This week’s FWF prompt is a word bank: blanket – falsetto – cumbersome – cinema – coins  You may use one or all of the words. Don’t force it. If only one speaks to you, that is your muse. Go with it. If you can use all of them with little effort (no overthinking it) then let it flow.

haunting laughs in falsetto at the hands of fate

the world drifts by and I want to paint

 

life does throw curves cumbersome & hard

stuck in the mire of it all makes me tired

 

sitting silently under a forever blanket of gray

rain drips slowly down my face & rolls away

 

the cinema plays the images again and again

oh, how to walk away from long forgiven sins

 

a single golden coin is held tightly in my hand

its brilliant shine speaks of another land

  1. “the cinema plays the images again and again
    oh, how to walk away from long forgiven sins”
    that spoke to me so deeply as I feel it so hard to let go and forgive yourself of the past. Even though I know all is washed clean in His eyes…mine are not so forgiving.

    Thank you, Mark, for a beautiful piece as usual.
