to quell the storm

waterhouse miranda the tempest 1916

JW Waterhouse, “Miranda” 1908

 My mind has been on a wintery beach, walking along, looking for sea glass and other treasures. Flakes of snow mix with the sea tang; I taste the salt on my lips. This week’s use it in a sentence has done nothing to quell these imaginings. I miss the ocean.

To quell the storm, she prayed on the sandy spit, sea tang and spray matting her hair, molding clothes to her salted body.

Thanks to My Loving Wife for hosting this week’s use it in a sentence!
