100 Word Song: Heavenly Day

100 Word Song: Heavenly Day

May 6, 2013 Writing 10

She looked up at me with amber eyes. We swayed slowly, gently to the music, lost in our own world. It was just the two of us, dancing together on the laminate flooring laid on the grass special for just this occasion. Elegantly we moved in circles around the dance floor, laughing in that way newlyweds did. Promises of forever revealed in that moment, of our dreams coming true.

She looked up at me with golden eyes. We swayed slowly, gently, back and forth, just the two of us for just this moment. Just me and my newborn baby girl.


The challenge: write exactly 100 words based on the particular song. This week’s song was “Heavenly Day” by Patty Griffin.

I always welcome and appreciate honest feedback. Please share your thoughts in comment.

Thanks for stopping in!
