Different Sound

Six Sentence Story word prompt – Junk

The city became so unbearable, she finally moved to the suburb where greenery filled her eyes.
She woke up to some pleasing sound, different from the noise of the city traffic or people’s small talk. It’s the sound of competition and harmony interchanging among the trees.
She lit a cigarette but felt offensive to smoke it. She felt the same with takeaway meals.
Living only with the company of birds made her realise there were so much junk in her life that she better lived without.

  1. Mother kept an aloe plant alive for over 60 years, it died right after she did. Just started withering away. It was there all my life, just like her and then…gone.

  2. Everyone should have the experience of living in each type of environment. Much to appreciate about both, but nothing compares to the peace and beauty and sense of peace available in more suburban and country settings.

  3. Nice to be reminded of the alternative as it is always so easy to forget that not only are their different manifestations of the world, but our own personal realities are tied to them.

  4. Thank you for “liking” my poem about the yuletide camellia on Living Poetry! It’s nice to connect with a sister poet in Australia! I’m in Greensboro, North Carolina, USA.
