Long and soft or short and hard.

I had to try this thing for a class in which I describe someone and attempt to use mostly (thank goodness mostly and not all) words with soft consonants and long vowels. Next I need to do the same but with hard consonants and short vowels.


He is real. I swear.

Maybe only for those who know him.

Okay, for me, The Wife.

I say he is more than fine.

He is wishes from blown lashes.

He is a serene leaf floating over a beehive.

A juicy orange in the rain.

You say he is a failure? No.

You say he is nice? He is more.

He won’t kneel for a meal, usually, so he may have you thrown.

He receives my wanes openly. I am free.

I own me. I own my life. I own him and he owns me.

A shear face. A hole that shows fear you won’t see or hear.

Aim for mine. Lure me.

Marry me and I will fish for a lifetime.

Never alone in the morning.

He carries me home. He holds my hair.

    • Oh my gosh, it was so hard and took forever. It felt like every word that entered my mind had either short vowels or hard consonants. I just started th portion of the assignment that actually requires us to use those and it is going much faster! I am interested to see what the other students’ experiences were in class this Thursday.
