One Sentence Challenge #7: Comfort From Love

Things are heating up in these posts! Last week had the highest number of participants to date. There is a compelling challenge in trying to leave it all out there with one sentence that seems to be garnering some attention.

Congratulations to T. L. Woods at https://scribewoods.wordpress.com/ for winning last weeks challenge with an utterly beautiful entry.

In silence, I caress the silk, months of my strained eyes and pricked fingers as I stitched the delicate symbols, stained with the blood of my labor, and now my fresh tears as I know that as I finished the shroud I must finish his life as well.

Shout out to all the other participants: Tamo, I Do Run, and Kira. Please check out their sites. They are lovely people. And hopefully they inspire you to also participate.

The point of a one sentence challenge is write the most perfectly written sentence you are able. It is a challenge in brevity, clarity, and artistry. It pushes you to come up with the best you can write, without the added pressure of writing a story or novel of any sort. The prompt for this week is Comfort From Love.

Here’s my sentence: Your feet upon my thigh and your radiating heat are my anxiety-salve melting the bitter embedded thoughts. 

I hope you enjoyed my sentence! I hope the prompt and the photo (courtesy of https://www.pexels.com/@kristingroth2) are evocative enough to push you to write. Please leave a comment below with the best sentence you can make for a chance to be advertised on this blog!
