Time – 100 Word Wednesday


Image Credit: Frank Jansen

Time no longer stands still. Time erodes stalwarts of the community, their once haughty airs erased from this city skyline and virtually from our memories. Time collectively speeds toward obscurity as flakes of paint float down from the wall onto the crumbling sidewalk below.

Anticipation of events to come is all but forgotten on this crowded street of memories. Collectively, the town exhaled and with it, population scattered. Hope lost. Streets empty.

Blue skies now dominate the skyline above the broken fray of what used to be. What might have been. What could have been.

If only love conquered all.


Written for: Week 8 – 100 Word Wednesday

How to participate? A few guidelines as we begin….

  1. Simply check my feed, or search the reader, for the 100WW or tag #100WW, post each Wednesday. I’ll also be posting on my Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook Feeds.
  2. Write your submission on your blog, Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook Feed and ping back to the weekly blog post. Feel free to use the image provided or your own. Please do credit the artist whose image we use – Links provided 🙂
  3. I’ll provide a Weekly Summary, or Windup, of posts on or by Tuesday; take the opportunity to read and comment on your fellow bloggers posts {keeping in mind to give each other grace and space}. I’ll try to read them all, but I can’t post your submission in the Weekly Windup if you haven’t posted before the end of the weekend but I’ll do my best to catch ’em all!
  4. Have fun! I enjoy reading your challenge submissions 🙂

      1. the photo does make for a homecoming scene kind of feel, a long forgotten town, tat’s why I felt your description matched the feeling I got but couldn’t write that good!
