This week's writing challenge from
Five Sentence Fiction
( Lillie McFerrin Writes ) is based upon the prompt:
Another poem. Had a little trouble with this one - took a while to make it work. I might revisit this at some point and try to get the flow a bit better... Six verses, five sentences.
The Wind In The Grass
With a muted moan
The wind carries the fragrance of a silver-green sea
To the shore.
And on the beach,
Ivory flowers of foam take flight, blown by gentle gusts,
Scattering moist petals along their path.
Then over the sand the air swirls,
Drifting a myriad of tiny grains into an undulating mound
Flowing around unkempt tufts of grass sprouting beyond the reach of the tide.
Twirling in the breeze,
Their slender blades sway
In time with its siren song.
Finally, the cool mist caresses you
While dancing across the dunes,
Hair flowing around your soft curves,
As natural and wild
As the wind in the grass
That forever whispers your name.
