The Sound The Gravel Makes

The scritch of gravel,

A fluffy flutter of wings;

Awkward sparrows walk

    Love this, especially “fluffy flutter”.

    • Thanks so much, that’s really kind!
      It’s bit strange, but when I look over my writing I realise just how many alliterative words I use, and mostly it’s not on purpose!
      Which just goes to show that some language techniques are definitely used subconsciously 🙂

    I love this. I especially like the word ‘scritch’. Onomatopoeia at its finest!

    • Thanks! I try to be original when describing sounds – it is SO easy to get caught up using cliches all the time, without even noticing, because you just subconsciously relate certain words to things…

Why don't you tell me what you think?
