The old trees bordering the fields acted like guards, muffling the sound of the busy city around them and creating a peaceful haven for the small creatures that lived inside. The only entrance was a narrow path that gradually widened as it ran through the field and up the hill. It was lined at either side with different types of tree; thin birches, broad maples and tall sycamores. Their long branches intertwined creating a golden canopy over the path. The only sound was the rustle of the leaves as birds fluttered among them, whistling merrily to each other.
Rays of light shone through the gaps in the crisp leaves, covering the floor in dappled sunlight. Occasionally a gentle wind blew through the branches causing sycamore seeds to spiral down onto to the carpet of leaves below. A young grey squirrel observed this for a while before scampering down the gnarled trunk. Cautiously it looked round before scurrying up the path. Once it reached the top of the hill it watched curiously as a familiar woman unlocked the door of the cafe, preparing for her long day of customers bustling in and out of her small shop. Suddenly the squirrel heard a child’s squeal and it hurried away.
Two excited children ran out of the squeaky playground gate and down the other side of the hill. The lady they were following trudged down the muddy path slowly, leaning on her walking stick for support. They raced ahead of her and were soon waiting at the water’s edge. “Hurry up!” one yelled impatiently. Nervously she tried to walk faster before one of the clumsy young boys toppled into the water. Finally she reached the bottom and drew some slices of bread wrapped in cling film from her handbag. Ducks were already rushing towards them, obviously hungry so early in the morning. The women watched enviously as the boys dashed round the pond trying to throw crumbs to every duck. With a sigh she looked down at her own stiff, wrinkled hands. However she found it hard to feel sorry for herself for

    One hour, 60 minutes or 3600 seconds was all it took. All it took for reality to become meaningless. As I lay here, I can taste blood in my mouth: hot, wet and metallic. I can feel the forever expanding pool or crimson blood cascading from my partially severed body. My nostrils are filled with the smell of gnarled fabric and the acrid scent of roasting rubber. Silence. It drowns me, it pulls and tugs and screams a thousand words never to be heard. Nothingness. 3600 seconds earlier. In an infinite…

    throwing our completely infallible guesses. Canobie Lake Park has just opened a few weeks ago. Despite the beautiful weather, it is not crowded. In fact, we haven't waited in a single line yet. We pushed our way through the gates and security just minutes after the park opened. It was amazing seeing all the people scattering, taking advantage of the short lines. Little kids are dragging their parents into the depths of the park, but Zachary and I started from the outside, and planned on gradually…

    DESCRIPTIVE WRITING Beads of sweat trickled down my face as the sweltering sun continued to beat on down on me. The waves crashing rhythmically on the shore were tempting me to enter those enticing waters to cool off. But, no. I could not. I was here for a job. A job that needed me to stand here with my heavy makeup bag and watch others have a dip in the cool waters while being photographed and filmed. I turned round and ‘people-watched’ the by-standers who were here at the beach for a nice…

    Descriptive writing piece I got off the bus as it came to a slow stop and as I walked past Burger King, the scent of greasy fast food filled my nostrils. The bus departed again, crawling along the road, leaving my sight, as it turned a sharp corner. An elderly man cut across my walking path to use the cash machine on the corner. As he walked towards it, I could see the growing disappointment on his face, to find it was out of order. I could now see more buses ahead of me, each turning and disappearing…

I had agreed to come here in hopes of actually enjoying it. Except, I was experiencing the exact opposite.

    Descriptive Writing She is a beautiful young woman, perhaps the most beautiful woman he has ever seen. Her hair is a midnight black color; it almost reminded him of the color of the night sky as he looks through a window. As he looked at her hair he notice the way the light catches in it and it shimmers as it flows with her every move. His eyes are drawn to the fact that her hair is very lengthy reaching down to the middle of her torso, so long in fact that it almost caresses the small of her back…
