Breath-Taking

Standard

Red rose petals

falling

falling

As she reached for her book

sinking

sinking

She waded in the river

not caring

not caring

To get wet.
Her delicate fingers

reaching

reaching

For rim soaked pages.
Tears

streaming

streaming

Down her flushed cheeks.
Her black hair

skimming

skimming

The water, waist deep…
She was breath-taking.

  1. I loved the use of repetition. Great use of structure! I really liked the description of her delicate fingers reaching for ‘rim soaked pages. Tears/streaming/streaming.’ Beautiful. Thanks for contributing this week!
