A Passage In Time

The girls silhouette became a fading, distant memory. A red rose and stained satin scarf were all that lingered from her past life. Echoes of a time not yet forgot.

A cascading flow of raven black hair lay askew across twining roots and a bed of fallen leaves, the spirit broken by deaths cold grasp. Her fragile body lay sprawled under the weeping willow whose false mourning mocked the tragedy that was her demise.

A still pool of glimmering water rippled reflexively at the touch of a fallen leaflet and the stagnant air grew restless, carrying with it scents of moss and lichen.

Glistening crystals fluttered down from the blue above to embrace the world with an icy kiss and return the warmth to its slumber.

Time passed and the girl became white, her silhouette becoming a fading distant memory. A black rose and a faded satin scarf were all that lingered from her past life. Echoes of a time almost forgot.

A cascading flow of stark white hair lay askew across twining roots and a bed of fallen leaves, the spirit transcendent of deaths cold grasp. Her lifeless body lay sprawled under the weeping willow. The willow stood vigil, in somber remembrance.

The still pool of frozen water was unmoved with it’s heart secluded from the warmth of the sun and the air was crisp but gentle, carrying with it hollow sounds and tasteless flavors.

Bright rays filtered down from the blue above to embrace the world with a heavenly glow and return the chill to its slumber.

Time passed and the girl became dust, her silhouette a fading distant memory. A withered rose and a tattered scarf were all that lingered from her past life. Echoes of a time long since forgot.

My Return

Hello,

It certainly has been a long time. The semester is finally over and I can breathe again, at least for a short while. I would go on and on about my classes and the nightmare that is finals, but I seriously doubt anyone wants to hear about all of that nonsense. Instead, in a separate post, I will present to you a piece of writing I wrote a while back. Rather than talking about the mechanics of writing and offering tips or circumstance that I’ve experienced, this will be my first display of my own creative writing on this blog. I hope everyone who reads it will enjoy!

 

Glad to be back and writing again!
