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! 🙂 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.
