stroll |strōl|
verb [ intrans. ]
walk in a leisurely way : I strolled around the city

The wind maneuvers through the folds of a jacket and the tight weave of synthetics to tease hidden follicles. Under a blanket of clouds the landscape seems removed from reality. Poplars hiss ancient rituals, vines twirl a golden promise and through the wet grass sparkling slippers trudge an uninspired trail towards nothing in particular.

The river sings a primeval song past a single reprieve for desperate souls to cling to in the hope of second chances. On its moss-covered banks an unhatched duck egg lies exposed - its shell offering ineffective and unnecessary protection to a cold embryo. In the depths a girl sleeps an escape among weeds and hair that protest the flow of time.
