Sadie Sable Sits at the Table

30 Days of Write, Day Two:

Sadie Sable sits at the table
In a house turned upside-down.
When her parents made rules
She would turn them around
Until the house turned over
And her parents fell down
And now Sadie Sable wears their bones in her crown
In a house turned upside-down.

Open with the Close

30 Days of Write is back, and this is my entry for the first assignment:

Right then, as he walked away, I wished it was winter. I wished for frost to hide my tears, and snow. I wished for snow, so I could follow his footsteps like string into the woods. Instead, the still heat of August left me exposed and hid his path completely. Only a few broken blades of grass said he had ever been there at all.

This might be a story I'll return to, so your input is appreciated.
