A Moving Curtain

A loud moving curtain pounding the ground suddenly came with a noisy friend. All I could do was smile. This was welcoming the holiday (our spring holiday- brought forward). A fresh breeze is always welcome as it has been sweltering. 

The monster was here. It came with it’s own rhythm, slapping the different surfaces. I stood out there to watch the curtain flow, inside me I thought, this is going to be good.

Everyone needs you. We do, the plants do and I wonder how the pets feel. Our dogs must despise the heat too, they curl cozily in front of the door watching the curtain unwind. The darkened noon, creates a pleasant feeling, and makes staying indoors extremely enticing.

Unexpectedly a gruelling, vibrating and intense sound takes over and hits us. ‘This is rare,’  I  share, my heart beating heavily. Where was that from? Does it mean there will be more rain? Probably, as the monster showed his face, clearly.

  2. Your word choice captivated me. I was drawn in. I had to find out who is the monster. You display talent with the use of personification and metaphors in your slice. I enjoyed the piece and a little eager for more.

  3. You have a great mix here of description and metaphor, with just enough symbolism and ambiguity to allow us to read all kinds of different messages. Well done!

  4. I am left speechless, but I must comment. I love this line – “The monster was here. It came with it’s own rhythm, slapping the different surfaces. I stood out there to watch the curtain flow, inside me I thought, this is going to be good.” Your descriptive language moved me (as the reader). THANK YOU for sharing this post.
