MONUMENTS AND LANDMARKS – PROMPT #110
For some reason, when someone stops to ask us for directions we tend to lead them based on points of interest that we assume they have a vague idea of knowing.
But we’re not asking for directions. Here is your charge: Choose a local monument or landmark of some import to your locale. Make that the subject of your poem or at least a major point in said verse. Any style, rhymed or not, metered or not… the only direction you are given is to be our tour guide and sell the sight!
Marie is slowly making her way back, although I’m not sure if she’ll join us for this prompt or start fresh next week. Either way, we anticipate her return.
MARIE ELENA’S RETURN
Almost HomeThe sun peeks in the train’s window Where I found sleep sound and deep awakening me to its rising over bean green or wheat brown acres red barns white or brick farm houses picket fences my heart senses I’m almost home. © Copyright – Marie Elena Good – 2013
WALT’S POINT OF INTEREST:
A tower rises, a beacon
seen from far and wide.
inside, the hollow shell
of a once upon a station.
New York Central’s
less than Grand sister.
She missed her heyday.
Fallen into decay
but restoration on the way.
Terminal clinging to life.
