The Lonely Road

Post by Hazel on Tue Mar 08, 2011 11:59 pm

This is was writing prompt. It was basically, describe a road. Or something to that effect, I can't remember. Anyways is it any good? Full or purple prose? Should I flush it down the toilet?


The Lonely Road

The hard packed dirt not disturbed by idle bikers or speeding cars was narrow and weaved in between the large trees. The slight breeze caused the red and orange leaves to lazily skip along the quiet road, hardly making a sound. Cracks covered some of the more worn looking areas making it look much older than it was and loose pebbles hung onto the edge as if holding on for dear life. The breeze picked up, making the tall grass and flowers that aligned the road move as if waving to some invisible viewer. A car flew by on a nearby highway, tires squeaking as it took a corner too fast. But no cars flew down this road. The many pot-holes scattered down the entire way were filled with brown puddles just asking for a child with bright new shiny rain boots to splash in. Trees that started to grow too close stretched out their roots, creating dips and bumps on what otherwise would be smooth areas. A warm fog was beginning to descend, hiding what no one ever saw anyways. But it's there, never ending and quiet, lazily stretching from one end to another just waiting for a traveler to make his mark, even if it's just a footprint.

Well, it's a lot better than I could do. I'm not that imaginative. Nice use of those adjectives.
