Pondering on the Second Story Porch

It's another Saturday with Jenny- I think I may have to start a second blog just for Jenny fun!

Want to join too? Come on over to Jenny Matlock

Well, here it is, the new prompt:

WORD COUNT - Not to exceed 100 words.
STYLE OF WRITING - Sensory Details Literary Device

She set her book aside, resting her eyes as she lay on the padded plastic lounger on the upper porch. She drifted in and out as the warm, satin breezes blew across her face, wisps of long blond hair tickling her nose. She would hear the hawk’s piercing cries, riding thermals in their search for the next meal and the staccato pecking of the woodpeckers scavaging for bugs in rotting bark. She pondered the future, how long before she was long forgotten, and her beautiful porch fallen into ruin just like the old cabin next to the lake?

Word count: 98

I think she better call a carpenter, an exterminator , and get some flood insurance while she's at it. :)

A satin breeze can make that padded plastic lounger seem real inviting! Nicely done!

What a beautiful direction to go with this prompt.

This was so visual!

I felt that breeze.

And the plastic lounger cutting into those little bones right above my heels!

I really enjoyed this.

Thank you for sharing it!
