Sarah sits

silently smiling

sipping sugared spearmint

splendorous surroundings

supply soul sating sanctuary

stimulating scenery

sparks speculation

Sarah sits serenely

shepherding sagacity

scribbling; shaping stanzas solemnly 

strangers startle

sabotaging solitude

speaking, shrieking symphony

shatters silence

Sarah’s secret sanctuary spoiled

snarling sullenly

she stands suddenly

Sarah stormily saunters south

  4. Sarah’s script should surely symbolise sacrifice
    she suffered surround sound
    strangers startled stares
    she suffered
    significantly
    she deserved
    silent solitude

    Sorry Melanie I couldn’t resist. Super.

    Love it, Melanie! Very clever and well-written. I can see why that picture inspired you…and I would also be snarling if my solitude was interrupted. Bravo! x
