Waiting #DailyPost #Autumn

From the exquisite crew   We look out on the street, the scenery of everyday, ever changing, never fading. Autumn is there, palpable, in the leaves blown across the sidewalks, in the colours of the trees, in the chill in the air. Slowly, implacably, the city changes to its winter clothes. You and I areContinue reading “Waiting #DailyPost #Autumn”

Disagree #DailyPost #WritersWednesday

Inspired by today’s prompt   “It’s me you’re babbling about, isn’t it?” she said, on a tone of voice that betrayed her mounting anger. I kept silent, no point in denying: the computer screen clearly showing the latest entry on her story was there, in front of us. At this point she was arguing with herContinue reading “Disagree #DailyPost #WritersWednesday”

Unfinished #DailyPost

We have got so far, much is still to be done. We have to go further, down the quiet streets, and the wide avenues, through the small parks, along the canals… There, somewhere, we’ll find ourselves, the meaning of us, the ultimate ecstasy. Till then, it’s unfinished business, work in progress, the novel unfinished. TillContinue reading “Unfinished #DailyPost”

Dilemma #DailyPost

  So, this is the deal: you stay, and then, here is your place, or you go, and good luck to you. But, you insist, the deal is reversible: if you want me, you have to convince me to stay, or I go. And so, we go on, late into the night, do you wantContinue reading “Dilemma #DailyPost”

Liminal #writephoto

We love the valley, the grey rocks arising from the ancient land, and the forest. Here they lived, a life of danger, of icy winters, of suffocating summers, but also of intimacy and joy. Where did they come from, and where did they go? We shall never know, their tradition was oral, only their dwellingsContinue reading “Liminal #writephoto”

Guest #TheDailyPost

Write a new post in response to today’s one-word prompt.   I cannot recall when you came. Probably long ago. Probably in one of those moments of sadness, of pain, perhaps of love. You stayed. You shaped my thoughts, my feelings. Nothing has been the same since. “The same”? Do I mean, before I knew?Continue reading “Guest #TheDailyPost”

Voyage #TheDailyPost

Not sure how to participate? The deed is done, my dear, so there is nothing to hold us back: we shall return to the City, among the youth, and the ghosts, and the walls full of memories. We will walk along the canal, remembering Rosa, and the heroes of the revolution, we will walk alongContinue reading “Voyage #TheDailyPost”

Playful #TheDailyPost

Write a new post in response to today’s one-word prompt.   We have waited so long, and now, we are here: this is our playground, the tree-lined streets, the old canal, the lovers on the crumbling benches… Silent, beautiful walls smile at us, radiating a warmth perceptible only to those who have penetrated the city’s secret…Continue reading “Playful #TheDailyPost”
