The End


The End

Silence descends like falling snow.
Quiet. Beautiful. Oppressive.

She hides.
Waiting for a break in the silence,
Hoping to wake up to yesterday.

And then.
A whisper breaks through
Like Spring’s first crocus.


This is my submission for this weekend’s Trifextra challenge, in which we were asked to write exactly 33 words on a topic of our choosing.

  1. You always write so beautifully and you captured the excitement I feel when I see the first sprout of spring. It always makes me feel hopeful.

  2. Hoping to wake up to yesterday- I love that line.
    This is so beautiful, the tension in the silence, the emergence of something from the cold …breathtaking!

  3. hoping to wake up to yesterday
