Journal 6

Rules: Each line has the same number of words as its line number (ex. line 1 = 1 word, line 2 = 2 words)

Use an end stop line only on every line divisible by 3.

Dinner in Summer


coals burn

black, red, orange.

The pungent smell of

seared meat singes the hairs

of my nose; sweet, savory bliss.

The steaks can finally be taken from

the grate of that rusted red grill that

has been in our back yard since my birth.

My father cuts the steaks, juices cover the wooden cutting

board.  My mouth waters like a sprinkler on a hot, dry

Summer day.  He gives me the biggest one and I’m so excited!
