100 word challenge: Examine

One of my friends from NaBloPoMo (National Blog Posting Month), writes a blog called Velvet Verbosity. She hosts a challenge weekly called the 100 words challenge. The challenge is to write 100 words about the prompt. It seemed like alot of fun so I decided to participate! πŸ™‚ And of course, this wouldn’t be Poetik Line Sense if I didn’t respond in verse (lol) but that isn’t required.


Asleep, oblivious to my examination
She breathes softly against my side.
Lashes fanned against her slumber pinkened cheeks
Midnight fringe against skin; gold, rose, and cream.
Her warm weight is a comfort in the cool of an unfamiliar room.
Repose of the innocent, her lips curve
Sweet as warm cocoa, and the howls of a newborn
screaming her way into life,
She dreams candy dreams.
I remember the first time I saw her
Waking to see eyes of liquid ink, her story waiting to be written.
With one look, I loved her.
Oblivious to examination, she sleeps against my side.

    • Rammi, you might have a talent for it πŸ™‚ It takes a long time to get good at anything artistic, occasional bursts of genius and inspiration aside.

    • Thank you πŸ™‚ I did have to struggle a little bit with my wording but I did myself a favor by writing about my little girl. I have endless words about her lol.
