It’s been a while since I’ve done a FITBF post, and Lauren’s approach has changed since my last one. Instead of 7 blanks, there’s just one open-ended sentence. It sounds like fun to me, a chance to practice my stream of consciousness writing. So, without further ado: This week’s prompt is,
“If I could get away for the day, I would go….”
…to a city!
I would walk among the tall buildings, water bottle in hand,
Taking pictures of random people and things,
As I imagine what their lives are like.
Is he a painter?
Is she a poet?
Perhaps the tattered old man sitting on that stoop was once a great professor.
I would stop in to a coffee shop
To sip peppermint mocha
And crack a book, glancing all the while
At the lonely girl in the corner
Or the boy desperate for a hug,
And say a silent prayer before finishing a page.
I would leave to walk once more
Among the hurting masses
And begin to sing.
I’d sing loud and strong,
Praising God for all He’s done
In my life.
Then, as the sun began to set,
I would find a spot to sit.
I would open up my notebook and take out a pen.
I would jot down some notes
On the awesomeness of God’s creation
And lose myself in the crowd
Once the darkness touched down.
