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 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 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!
