Day 13: We Walked Together

Certain favorite bloggers of mine have taken up the assignment of blogging 31 days in a row (#write31days), and in an attempt to re-galvanize my own writing, I decided to join in the fun. The idea behind this particular blog-a-thon is to be as real and vulnerable as possible, which is (almost) always a healthy exercise. I've tried blogging marathons in the past (to varying degrees of success), and my seminary schedule does not allow for much flexibility. so the process may be fitful or short-lived, but it couldn't hurt to try!

Day 13: We Walked Together


We walked together, once
For a while
And we laughed
And we talked
And we forgot about time
For as long as we walked

Things aren't like that now
Time is slow
Labored
Always waiting for something right
Something meaningful
I shuffle, drag my feet

The talk is hollow now
Spitting words
A competition of sounds
Laughter rings out
Echos off walls
And dies in the air

But we will walk together again
We will kick rocks
Into the river
While it rains
And we'll remember
And we'll laugh
