saturday centus..week 34

the prompt as always printed in bold.

With the new year round the corner,

the white-bearded man rolled through the church doors.

To sent up a simple prayer in final hope,

that there was someone to take the call.

He kneeled down as he had done as a faithful child,

and waited for a hand to stop his fall

but there was no sign nor light,

in heart nor mind.

So he stood up and vanished,

facing the cold and lonely winter night.
