Dusty Dirt Road

Writing Challenge: Sept 9, 2017

Prompt: Use alliteration in a poem or story.

Down the old, dusty, dirt road;

The gravel grinds on the ground beneath my feet.

I step, I skip, I stomp, raising up the dust

As I race down the road; rocks rolling under my feet.

The train-tracks travel along with the trail;

Trail and tracks tracing the tall mountain’s base.

Wide-eyed, I whirl around watching the western landscape:

Birds bob against the baby-blue sky,

The sagebrush sways in the swift-blowing wind,

Grasshoppers gallantly jump into the dry grass.

This is a peaceful, pensive, picturesque place.
