Your town in 150 words


The view driving down the road outside town.

Someone on a writing site forum issued a challenge to describe your town in 150 words (or 5 lines if you’re feeling poetic).  Descriptions, anecdotes, sights, smells, whatever you want.

Here’s mine:

Shining provincial town in the middle of an empty prairie.
Overwhelming to the uninitiated but a sorry excuse, barely enough for those who know better.
Cultural gems hidden around if you know where to look but I don’t want to look.
This is not my life; this is a pit stop I’m making the best of.
I’m frozen here, buried here, waiting for the thaw.
