Haiku & Other Poetry, History, tutto e niente

turn to stone

stop hiding your face

silently wishing for change

turn to stone no more

Thanks to Ronovan Writes for the word prompts (face / change) that fit perfectly with the  Sunday Photo fiction prompt. Photo courtesy of Pixabay

Not sure if I’m interpreting the lyrics as intended but they inspired me as well …

Turn To Stone (written and performed by Joe Walsh)

Hey now, the well run dry
Pages of your book on fire
Read the writing
On the wall
Hoe down, it’s a show-down
Ev’rywhere you look, we’re fighting
Hear the call
And you know it’s gettin’ stronger
I can’t last very much longer
Turn to stone
Well there’s a change in the wind
You know the signs don’t lie
Such a strange feelin’
And I don’t know why it’s takin’
Such a long time
Backyard people
And they work all day
Tired of the speeches and the way
That the reasons keep changin’
Just to make the words rhyme
And you know it’s gettin’ stronger
Can’t make ’em run much longer
Turn to stone
