Wednesday's Words

from Under The Porch Light.  Today she gave us two sets of six words to inspire our creativity and include them in a creative work of sorts.  I thought, why not?  Then I couldn't just use six!  I had to include them all.  I don't follow instructions well. Thanks, Delores, for the fun prompt.
PRAYING FOR A HERO

Creeping
invisible
with an impending
sense of
gallows doom

One silver tear
sliding down
merely a flicker
across her chiseled face
beauty unmarred

Quieting
irregular breathing
she scanned the desolate
arid landscape
expecting trouble

Praying for a hero

Wow...a 'two 'fer'.
There are NO rules with Words For Wednesday. Whatever gets your 'writing motor' running.
Do you want to be listed in the sidebar as a participant?

Great use of the word prompts, Gail.

just the sight of the gallows or the thought of that hanging judge would cause me a lot of irregular breathing
