Writespiration – is a challenge courtesy of Sacha Black. The challenge is to write something using the weekly theme in just 52 words…. EXACTLY 52 words, no more, no less. It’s harder than it seems, I can assure you!
This week the topic is The Break. Here’s my offering:
Living in a small country town,
A city break is invigorating.
More people in the tram than in your whole town.
Unknown faces staring down at their phones.
A break from being known, from routine,
From paddocks and big skies
To views of cityscapes, the sky reflected in the grids
I took this photo in Melbourne, looking up at the sky reflected in the buildings, through the tram wires. I shared it on Instagram with the comment that it’s very different from my usual backyard big sky photos. It seemed to suit my post!
I look forward to seeing how others have interpreted this one. I’d love to know what you think of my 52 word story!
