Is Anybody There?



Write a new post in response to today’s one-word prompt



There is a field

near my house

full of graves and bones

I used to wander by that field

and call out

“Is anyone at home?”

Nobody ever answered

no one ever said “hello”

Millions of bones stayed quiet

as I wandered through that field


I wish the bones would answer me

I’d like to take them out of the cold

I’d give them someplace warm to sleep

like the pot on my kitchen stove.

William Blake
