The Zephyr (#AtoZChallenge)

This is my 9th attempt at the month-long blogging challenge, Blogging from A to Z. I’ve completed it 5 times so far. My theme this year is 7 Sentence Fiction, and the word I’m using for Z is Zephyr.

The Zephyr

It was a gentle breeze that flew in through the window. It carried with it a song, and the windchime’s soft music joined it.

George smiled, almost as if he had been waiting for it, and he had. Others thought he was mad, but he knew the zephyr came every year on the date at that time.

“It’s time to let go, George, it has been eleven years,” he knew they would say. But his answer, like the breeze, never changed.

“Even if I did, she wouldn’t,” he would reply, holding on to the memory of his wife for one more day.

Poetry & writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.
