Week in Seven Words #240

clatter
A sculpture park pockmarked with construction - few differences between the art displayed and the machinery making room for new installations.

distances
Her long-legged stride represents how she's made her way through life.

huddling
Clouds roll in over the river. On the rocks, a sea gull, a soda can, and a bundle of clothes that may have someone in them.

oscillate
The conversation fans out to West Africa, Korean soap opera stars, karaoke, and the way people lock their thoughts into binaries during arguments - two solutions to every problem, two possible opinions in complete opposition.

smudges
Pigeons hold court in the shadows of the bridge.

stock
He barrels out of the convenience store with a shopping cart full of cupcakes and beer. No partying in half-measures.

twinging
Walking a long distance outdoors, especially on uneven ground, gets at muscles that remain dormant during a gym routine.

I love 'clatter', so true, all too often!

Which made the sculpture park inadvertently more interesting :)

Oscillate says much about the way we so often live.
