5 Word Challenge 10/21

5 Word Challenge 10/21 « Vox Diaspora.

How it works:
Write an entry of any length or style using five assigned words. Bold the five words. Tag your blog post with ’5wordchallenge’ and any other tags you wish to add. Feel free to pingback to this post or provide a link to your entry in comments.

This week’s words were chosen by DJ: whorl, sepal, grain, pollenpetal

If you’d like to select words for an upcoming challenge, chat with me (MsRedPen) on my blog, DM me on Twitter, or send me a message through the Vox Diaspora Yahoo! group or the ExVox forum.

The whorls on my fingertips remind me of waves. One whorl took you away from me. None have bought you back.

When they found an oar, still held in the rowlock, the grain of the wood drew my eyes to the chip on the end – did it look like I had hit you? If they found you, could the petal-shaped wound be traced back to here? Could forensics tell, or had the sea washed away all evidence, like rain washes pollen from the sepal of a flower?

I don’t know the answer to any of these questions. All I know is you will never hit me again.
