in response to a one line poem prompt
Never one to come knocking
inspiration is elusive and
fleeting, discovered in
floats in the warmth of space
between us on a ten hour drive
after the food has been eaten the
talking has ended and we’ve said all
there is to say we will sit for hours
the only sound that of rain on the
car roof as we pause to take
comfort in rare moments of
assured silence where no
words are required.
Thanks Kathy Jacobs, this was a fun one.
