#SKYLARK CHALLENGE -
Questions answered

WHAT  IS THE SKYLARK CHALLENGE?

But this doesn't happen normally.

WHAT ARE THE RULES?
• Use ALL 4 words exactly as they are written, but in any order you wish

Skylark challenge

She stared with little HOPE at the lawyers. They would never understand her fears of the courtroom for they thrived in that environment. What was so bad that it created this FEAR in her?

She could not BELIEVE that she was going to have to divulge what she had suppressed from her memory for so long.

The anger and confusion, an 8 year old girl molested by her 16 year old brother, not even knowing the name for the act he was attempting. The STIGMA attached to the event being so bad that her mother told her if she ever told anyone about it, she would never speak to her again.

With tears gently flowing down her cheeks, she told them her story and said ...
“Once you tell so...

Dear Lady Skylark - Becca🐦,

Though late but for Your reading pleasure.. As was under the weather; And haven't written in a while.

FLUTTERING
* RACING
* TURQUOISE
* PEACOCK
* MOONLIGHT
* WINGS
* FRECKLES
* HOLLOW

As the Fluttering wind lifted the Racing Balloon with a tug at its very heart up into the Turquoise sky, it floated like a stately Peacock gliding across the star filled night sky with the Moonlight shining on It's Wings almost akin to the Freckles shining on Tim's face as he stared down at the vast expanse of darkness which resembled a Hollow Black hole..

Further the now more agitated wind tugged at the taught ropes of the balloon creating a Fluttering in the innards of ...

She watched with satisfaction as the flames tasted his thoughts, in disgust.
Listened to them pop; whiz and spit with each shaken fist and callous remark.
Smirked at the irony, as the fire groaned with the weight of his crushing words, now lifted.

This is where I am.
Not on the path I imagined, but it's still so beautiful.
The valleys are splendid, when seen from the hills.

Hi Becca,
It was when I tried using the coffee mug to water the plants(as the watering can lay confused) that I knew I had to write back to you.
Before I say anything else, let me thank you and the judges from the bottom of my heart for telling me that someday I might be worth more than my corporate job, that I might have it in me. I don't know if everyone goes through this but I find sharing what I write : terrifying. The sheer act of letting  people in, on your heart and soul and giving them the choice of liking it or not, is so foolhardy.
Thank you for the affirmation that they would. I would behave a little intoxicated the whole day because my head is buzzing with words that only my hear...
