Exercising the craft—August 10, 2015

By Ekta R. Garg

Prompt: Today, our prompt is a word, and has a word-limit. Let the word inspire your post. You can write in any form, poetry or prose, but at the most, 55 words. The word: Return.



I walked, bent at the waist, bottom heavy. Air blew through the hollow cavity in my chest. I dragged my suitcase behind me.

One thinks of vacation as a time to rejuvenate spirit and self, to help them align once again. Yet…yet…I had come home, but my heart had not.

When will it return?
