dVerse Poets 12-6-21

Your challenge, if you choose to accept it, is to incorporate the above quote into a piece of prose. This can be either flash fiction, non-fiction, or creative non-fiction, but it must be prose! Not prose poetry, and not a poem. And it must be no longer than 144 words, not including the title. (It does not have to be exactly 144 words, but it can’t exceed 144 words.)
•Please include Kimberly Blaeser and the name of the poem it came from on your post
•You must use that entire line. You may change punctuation and capitalize words, but you are not allowed to insert words in between parts of the sentence.
Write a piece of flash fiction or other prose of up to or exactly 144 words, including the given line.
Post your Prosery piece on your blog and link back to this post.
Place the link to your actual post (not your blog or web site) in the Mister Linky site.
Don’t forget to check the little box to accept use/privacy policy
•Please try to visit other blogs and comment on their posts. It’s part of what makes dVerse a community!

Dust travels silently over them, weeds hide their presence. Wind driven tumbleweeds roll, sometimes pausing, possibly to reflect what lies below. Time itself still passes, never stopping to think of the children, the victims of the past. I remember, I reflect. I dress in their stories patterned and purpled as night.
