Craft/Writing Prompt--Layering

Choose a scene you've already drafted and go back to it with the intention of adding a layer of sensory images. Focus on only one sense; for example:

the ripple of the wind through a stand of cottonwood trees or
the bellowing of a frightened animal in the middle of the night;
the blue of a lapis necklace against a milk-white throat;
a coarsely woven blanket crumpled stiffly in a corner.
