Day 5 – Tears and a smile


You discover a letter on a path that affects you deeply. Today, write about this encounter. Approach this post in as few words as possible.

The most important encounters of your life are unexpected. I nearly stepped on it. It was barely visible in the rain, lying on the ground, forgotten, torn, one half carried away by the wind, a car, a heel. Half-drowned in the water, words blurring, turning into blue mist, disturbed only by raindrops. I knelt down, my fingers hovering over the wet paper, not daring to touch. A word, two, a name, a confession, imprinting themselves forever in my brain before they disappear, mixing with my tears. A phantom in the dark, hurrying, excited, not realizing his loss. I smile.
