Using Wednesday's Words


River of Drifting Through Life (you can find her in my sidebar) has been providing the weekly word prompts for February and a grand job she’s been doing of it too.  This is her last week for the month and here are the words….
petrichor, sunlit, squinted, comfortable, disrupted, phones
and/or
personal space, copper, granite, quarry, squat and parched.

Here   goes:

Sam squatted beside a giant outcropping of granite in the sunlit   quarry and squinted into the bright light.  It was not a comfortable position but a necessary one as he tried to avoid Mirabelle who insisted on invading his personal space.  He couldn’t really blame her.  He knew she was terrified.
“I’m parched” Mirabelle whined, “and that last solar flare disrupted phone service.   Anything copper in the cell phones is totally fried.”
She looked up as rain drops spattered sporadically into the dust around her feet.
Sam sighed.  “Well, don’t expect to drink in the heavenly petrichor of rain washed air.  I don’t think black rain will have the same effect  as regular rain on the atmosphere.”

Thanks for a great month River.   My turn for March.
