The Lark

In Wonderment

Prose poem

Photo by the Author captured on Google maps

Sometimes when the nights are long and lonely, I switch on my computer to view the silent, empty streets, places captured on live webcams around the world.

Yes, it is one of the most melancholic things one can do, viewing a beach, or a street on the other side of the world, mediating on the still waves of an ocean and seagulls gliding in a sunny sky.

POETRY The Final Reveal — Curtains Up When worlds collide. The image shows the silhouette of a woman kneeling before what looks like a mic on a stand. The background is fiery orange and there is a wispy whiteness around the head of the mic.
