Writing Prompt: Mint

Describe the taste of mint, without using the words blue, green, cool or fresh.
No, you can’t use “minty” either. — Sarah Selecky

You place it gently at the tip of your tongue, slowly wrapping it in a fold, delivering it into the moist cave between your lips as you clench your teeth shut. You close your eyes to savor the first burst of sharp flavor and here comes your first thought – it tastes like the sea on the cusp of summer’s noon.
Its circular body is flipped through and through, crashing against the banks of your teeth like a pebble in restless tides, chipping away each time it hits the shores. Alongside the summer heat, it glows with a force. It is a piece of invitation – come to the sea where it is cold, and I will melt the heat away.

At its peak, it throbs with torridity, fighting with a fervor to be scorchingly cold.

At the close of the day it is chipped to its core, releasing feeble spurt of tangy tremor as the setting sun retreats.
Its purpose dutifully served, it fades to nothingness.

“This is an important lesson to remember when you’re having a bad day, a bad month, or a shitty year.
Things will change: you won’t feel this way forever.
And anyway, sometimes the hardest lessons to learn are the ones your soul needs most.

I believe you can’t feel real joy unless you’ve felt heartache.
You can’t have a sense of victory unless you know what it means to fail.
You can’t know what it’s like to feel holy until you know what it’s like to feel really fucking evil.
And you can’t be birthed again until you’ve died.”

Supposed to be revising for 777 exam tomorrow,
but here I am and getting a kick out of entering ‘ugliest pugs’ into Google Images.
I swear if I ever get a pug I can never look the poor chap in the face!
I can just die laughing
