The Fair (Response to “Writing Prompts 11/23/18”)

The streets were empty
It’s 4am
The fair is needy
It’s 5am
The people are speedy
Setting up the case of jewelry
Knowingly the candy lollipops are laid out neatly
To lollygagging on completely
The baseball caps are hung sparingly
For the fair requires unrelyingly
The shirts require your attention
For your dollar submission
The boots are shown
With great unknown
About how they were handmade to perfection
The hologram was
designed to unrealization
The purses were sewn
with pure realization
of clarification of their utilization
The fishes’ clothes were made to fit beyond personalization

The people walked to the tune of the beam of sound from the bands playing in the room

The hotdogs demand complete digestion for the fair’s satisfaction

The Streets Were Empty? (Response to “Writing Prompts 11/23/18”)

The streets were empty. Not even a single mouse was there. Was it because this was a ghost town? Or perhaps no one had been on those streets in a while because of bad weather conditions. Yes, they were empty until one brave young soul decided to walk one empty street, just to get to another empty street, followed by many more on his way to his destination. He found one lost soul. Both of them walked each street to find more and more lost souls. This one young brave soul was on a mission to find every lost soul before his 29th birthday. This mission began when he was only 5 years old. With all of those years, this one brave young soul had found over 3,000 lost souls – men, women, boys, girls, all waiting for someone to pass by and save them from the situations they were in. This one young brave soul did not stop at anything. He went through every obstacle to finish his mission.

Lost

You see me but don’t know my name
I played music for you and you smiled
When I danced in the sun to a song heard in my head
You wished you could dance for a while
I spoke to you once on the sidewalk
You were gracious, compassionate, and kind
I was asleep on the ground and it was your shoes I saw
When your blanket covered me before passing by
You see me and in your heart know
Not all who wander are lost

I see you as you stop at the corner
You lock your doors and avert your face
When I pass you on the sidewalk with a smile
And good day it’s your fear that turns you away
I saw the look of disgust on your face
As I danced in the warm spring rain
You shook your head in pity as I fed the birds
What little I had to share that day
I see you and am filled with compassion
Because I know it is you that lost your way
