That sinking feeling

08 Dec

100_0520Inherited nearsightedness from myopic parents. Sun’s blinding dazzle on the bay. Too many sloops moored in the basin. As $13.5 million sank beneath his feet, Tony was only surprised disaster hadn’t struck sooner.


Thirty of my own words, added to the three provided by Trifextra this weekend: basin, dazzle, myopic, for a total of thirty-three.

    Great job with the prompt. I liked the specificity of your details. This prompt encouraged a lot of abstract responses. Yours was a bit of fresh air in that regard. Thanks for linking up.
