An Undercurrent of Peace

imaginarygarden FASHION ME YOUR WORDS TO ~ FOLD Imagined By


I sit and listen to the hush
that hums, that hums, like locust
like rain, soft and lush
like timeless static of the universe.
I listen, listen to the hush.
It’s always there just beneath
the honk, the screech, the rant, the rush
of life. Slow down. Exhale into the infinite
lest the chaos of this world crush
the spirit to a tiny, talc of gritty dust
that’s blown away forever into the hush

(This is what I have to do these days. No TV, no music, just the hum of the universe, a hum of peace beneath the noise.)

Your challenge today toads, is to Let your words dance with me in celebration. Forgetting all others, focus your gaze on The Fold and write using the form. You can write fiction fact or fantasy, staying true to the following guidelines:
