Journal 6: Prompt 2

Wild Rule: One action image per line The grass blows in the breeze looking like rolling waves, as it whispers on the wind calling out. The wildflowers glisten and flourish under the sun’s warmth spreading pollen for newer fauna to grow. The butterfly’s wings flutter as the wind whistles across the field pulling it this […] Continue reading »

Journal 6: Prompt 2

Rule: Every line must mention something about space/time/gravity. Just as the Earth pulls me down I’m pulled by your gravity. No matter how many days have passed my body feels your pull.
