Week in Seven Words #310

carving
The wind slashes at us all the way up the hill.

enfolding
She lingers in her daydream. Its air smells like a bakery, and its streets are cobblestone. Roses burst from a breach in the wooden fence around her Queen Anne house.

patchiness
Sidewalks held together with cement, gum, and mashed litter.

restless
It's a rumbly night with noises from parts unknown.

rosiness
Receive an email from her. Attached, a selfie with our faces wreathed in hearts.

run-of-the-mill
A movie stitched together from nostalgic moments, explosions, and characters who arrive with pre-packaged, top-level abilities. Dressed conveniently in white for good, black for bad.

ungrammatically
An academic article, written as if each sentence was held to a fire and partially melted.
