Over the Bridge

April 19, 2009
More by this author
Over the bridge, beyond the graceful waterfall, there lies a magical place. A place that I call home. I live in a cottage, in a meadow.
That is my home. Within the meadow there lies one and only one rose. One elegant rose. That no one can ever know.
Only I and I alone know its terrible secret. Its terrible secret about the daisies beyond the river. For this is the reason why there is only one rose.
The poor, poor rose within the meadow that lies by itself all alone. Even though it deals with the disgusting daisies beside the river, the rose is still to blame.
For it had done something terrible everywhere it grew. If you ever see this rose don’t set your face to grim for it is only him.

Nice imagery and exploiting of the rhythm and sounds of the words. I didn't understand the last line: "Don’t set your face to grim for it is only him", though I liked the sound of it. That's where you might focus on a couple alternatives to see if they convey your intended meaning more immediately. Since you're trying to get major impact out of few words, I'd recommend removing the two instances of "there are". Just say "..., beyond the graceful waterfall, lies a magical place"... (more »)
