Used the prompt as an exercise to practice descriptive sentences…

The diamond glimmered like the vibrant sun buried among dulled rocks and stones.

Even under the sickly fluorescent beams permeating their jaundiced glow, the clear, faceted gem shone like a star plucked from the evening sky.

The diamond protruded abruptly from the shiny gold band tightly encased around her pink sausage finger, which she wiggled in my face.

Her clean, milky skin was no match for the vibrantly faceted diamond which bared its seductive bedroom eyes as it rested against her chest.

Nestled in the weeds at the far edge of this dilapidated house, the diamond laughed cheekily as its hiding place for the past twenty years was finally exposed.

The gaudy woman, draped in dead animals and the stench of flowery perfume, plopped the diamond on the counter as if it was a nickel.

Large diamond eyes peered at me from the black shadows before they ambled from the corner and exposed a wiry cat covered in soot.

Large diamond eyes glittered ominously from the blackest shadows of the room. And then, when I blinked, they crept closer, exposing the wiry cat everyone called Soot.

I did not see the stars as diamonds, but rather as tiny Christmas lights strung across the black night that had been draped overhead.

The mud-caked man bent over the hole and reached his calloused hand to pluck the precious stone from its bed of dirt and jagged rock.

About 365 Things to Write About

I'm inspired by almost anything and everything creative - nature, architecture, art, words, music...I like to roam along streets, through foreign countries, and within my mind where the world is full of endless possibilities. I dream of being an idealist, but I've experienced too many harsh realities for that wish to ever be true. Therefore, I look for the hope and the good in small nuances, and I express my thoughts and feelings about the world around me on pages and canvases whenever I can.
