Welcome to Saturday Centus #76. This week is umm ... well it feels quite odd. I mean Jenny has decided to give us a challenge and frankly I am not sure if I am understanding what it is she is directing us to do. It's the usual 100 words and the prompt is this picture but....we have to describe the image in a story using these five senses: hearing, sight, touch, smell, and taste.
Okiedokie here we go, so on to my contribution.....
The smooth walking stick in my hand kept a rhythmic glide with my stride.
Age would not deprive me of my journey down this old dirt road.
The quiet filling of my senses; sweet grass, and chimney smoke wafting in the air.
I took in the sight of it, run down, weathered and neglected.
The sound of leaves flickering with cold rain; the sweet taste of it misted upon my face.
The rain turned the old gray clapboards a warm patina; every tree around it seemed greener.
Then it became clear to me, this would always be home. I smiled.
Ok so how did that feel... uh I mean smell... no I mean did you perceive anything ?? Oh well perhaps maybe you can stop by Jenny's blog (off on my tangent) and maybe you will have a better understanding of what Jenny means.
