Dark Clouds (for the Monday Morning Writing Prompt)


by Imelda at My Word Wall

Dark clouds rolled in

marring the smooth blue of the sky

the breeze held its breath

the birds were quiet, with nary a sigh.

Will this be the day

when the rains come

to soothe the parched earth

long denied this balm.

Dust swirled about

mocking the awakened hope

as scars traced the land

proclaiming Dry Spell’s work.


I wrote this piece following the prompts from 20 Lines or Less:  smooth, soothe, work, dark.
