CCC19: The Hill is Steep

High Noon

Crimson’s Creative Challenge CCC#19

The way is steep, the day is hot
A foot-weary slog to reach the top
I check my watch, what do I see?
Oh. it’s 12 o’clock!

  7. You’ve captured the exertion in just a few words with a funny twist and what a great street name!

  8. Again, you’ve nailed it with the shorter form of writing. Not a word wasted; it conjures a very distinct picture and I felt I was there, walking up the steep hill too 🙂
