GUEST,Reynardine BS: Mudcat challenge: 100 word story exactly (240* d) RE: BS: Mudcat challenge: 100 word story exactly 19 Aug 01

Damn. That wasn't formatted properly. It's *supposed* to have five words per line, with a line break where the alliteration is broken. Here it is again, with a 'pre' HTML tag added. Hope it works. Sorry for posting such self-indulgent nonsense twice.

 Silver sliver sailing skyward slowly.
Silence's sound; skylarks seeking slumber.
Wind whispered warm while we
winnowed, working wordlessly; when we
did diurnal dues.
Now night
tarries. Then, to the table
sharing soft steps, sibilant silence.
Standing, seeing summer slip south
leaving laughing, lifting leaf-lilt
we waited, wondering why, who.

Autumn's auburn absence all around.
Day drops distantly; down dusk
falls, frost-fast. Faraway fire
horizon-hovers; holt, heath hold
breath, burning
sky seems soft
to touch. Turn then towards
lamp-light, laughter. Lie, love,
be brave, bear barrenness boldly.
We'll weather winter's waste, watching
silver sliver sailing skyward slow.

Did it work?
