Challenge of the Week LXXXVII
Descriptive Writing. One of the four foundational elements of the written word. You can write about anything you want, poetry or Prose; but make sure to focus on your descriptions. Whether you're describing a character, a setting, or an emotion, we want the imagery to leap out of the page. But tread lightly - there is such a thing as too much description. We're looking for that perfect balance. Imagery that sings, but doesn't scream.
It’s Silly, Isn’t It
A scarf sitting in midair
As if wrapped cozily around someone's neck.
A little shirt rests under it,
Seemingly hugging a set of arms and torso.
Now you see the pants
Hanging idly onto an invisible pair of legs.
Don't forget the shoes,
Diligently tying the outfit together.
It's silly, isn't it?
Yet in the case of rape,
That's the primary question.
What were you wearing?
As if the victim truly is invisible, after all.
