Upon Her Return

d’Verse Poets Pub -MTB: The Death Sentence
Here’s the challenge –
one sentence, improvised, end of civilization as we know it

give it a try over at http://dversepoets.com

It had been only three weeks since she kissed
Him goodbye, escaping the gloomy skies
Of home for a dose of sunshine, (something
She craved in the middle of winter even though
He did not), but something had gone awry while
She soaked up those healing rays and he sulked
Under the gray clouds because as soon as she
Stepped into the house, before she could even kick
Off her shoes, he slumped off to take a nap, signaling
The end of the world as she knew it

  1. There is so much tension in this and you have intensified it with the feeling of contrasting climates. Great answer to the prompt, Candy. And just to let you know, the link you provided was broken but I added the correct link directly to your poem.

  2. The tension is intensified by having to feel the taut contrast in two climates. Great answer to the prompt, Candy. (And sorry if a comment pops up twice, I’m having technical difficulties commenting with many of the blogs.) Also, the link you provided was broken but I added the direct one to the Linky widget.
