Free Write Friday #13: Image Prompt

on December 21, 2012

FreeWriteFridayBadge

Here we are again on yet another Friday and Kellie Elmore has challenged us to a free write with an image prompt. If this is your first encounter with Free Write Friday, feel free to read the intro on Kellie’s website.

In short, here is what is expected. . .

Do not think. Do not edit. Do not pay attention to spelling, punctuation or form. Just allow the moment, your feelings, your imagination to run free and…

Do not stop until you find yourself forcing your words or trying too hard to complete a thought.

Pounding Rain

*****************

With head bowed
I feel the rain
Pounding, pounding
But I feel no pain

In spite of cold
I will survive
It’s my life
I decide

To live, to die
To watch, to wait
To live, to live
It’s not too late

Only refreshing
Cleansing desires
Snuffing out
Emotional fires

Soon it will end
But I shall remain
Lifting my head high
With joy, without pain
