WOTL Prompt 9

Here is my response to this weeks Writing Outside the Lines Challenge Prompt 9 …

Who’s that Girl?

She had long brown braids

Cotton dress with a pinafore

to protect it

High topped lace up

leather shoes

Thick stockings that were

being gradually eaten by her shoes

Seems to be about twelve…


Who is that girl?

Why is she in my dreams over

and over and over?

I don’t recognize this dirt

road she is walking

I cannot she her face

because she is always

walking ahead of me

Walking with a purpose

and a brisk pace


In my dreams I follow her

but always awake before

she reaches her destination

Who is that girl?

What does she mean to me?

Why is she stalking my dreams?
