Prompt Ten, Hour Eight

Youth is when your skin is soft,
your drive hard and your mind,
somewhere in between

It is luscious afternoons of mingling
body heat, the expanse of new experiences,
and bonfires at the beach until the break of dawn

… then you wake to find a grey hair.

  1. ‘Smiles’! Thanks Sarah! I am sorry I didn’t reply sooner – I had to drive to California for a funeral the last day of school and just got back. Thanks for your feedback – I loved this prompt, even though I originally struggled with the sevenling, as it was new to me. Now I can finally get caught up with reading and commenting on others!
