100 Word Challenge - Portrait

What follows is in response to the 100 Word Challenge, usually authored by the stately Velvet Verbosity, but temporarily proffered by me. The Word this week is 'Portrait'.

100 Word Challenge

She, a Portrait

She was tall and lean, but softly woman, with gentle swell of hip and breast beneath the diaphanous gown of silky white, which flowed about her in the caressing breeze. Her long blond hair sweetly framed her kindly face, blue eyed and lightly kissed by sun dropped freckle, with full red lips that needed no color. The touch of her hand revealed skin so soft as to be but a kiss upon the cheek and the scent of her was as the sea, crashing to shore in a gale. My dream, was she. My dream, is she. My dream, dreamed.

And just for grins - a shot from Tipp City, taken last weekend.


Ndinombethe - "As I go, I am wearing you."

BOTH perfect compositions.

Collette said...

You paint a beautiful picture with words.
That does kind of look like my garage, though...lol!

Tara R. said...

You do have a way with words. Beautifully written.

If I should ever marry again (don't wish that on me!!), I would want to be filled with the same feelings that these words inspire in me, and that woman to be such a vision.

I was going to joke and write, "HEY! How'd you write about ME?!?" but what you wrote was so beautiful I didn't want to marr it with that comment. :-p

Love the picture as well!

Cat said...

I will make more time for photography this year, I will. You have inspired me!

As for me? I am moving right along, so things are good, no flat tires so to speak. ha!

Very nice indeed.

This was perfectly charming, and just brimming over with love. And speaking of love, would it be about Love Muffin?

Terrific photo, too; it has great composition and color.

Eloquent. I love that saying you always leave us with, "As I go, I am wearing you." Puts a smile on my face each and every time. (Hugs)Indigo
