Sunday Writing Prompt #232 “It’s All In The Title” – Whispers in the Wall

old-sawmill

Whispers in the Wall

The old wheel creaks and groans

Prefers days of gentle water flow

When not too much is expected of it.

The trickling stream caresses memories

Of days long gone

When the churning meant productivity.

Now the ghosts in the walls

Whisper of past glory days

Of laughter at the end of a day’s work

And drinking and eating late into the night.

Now it’s a matter of time

Neglect and progress has superseded

Its purpose and usefulness.

A relic to the past,

The whispers in the walls are all that is left

They engage with each other

Regaling tales of underdogs and topdogs,

For there is no one else.
