FIVE SENTENCE FICTION – Flame

12 Comments

Here is my endeavor for this week’s prompt from Lillie McFerrin [http://www.lilliemcferrin.com] of FLAME

LIFE’S CANDLE

F rom the moment I first the light in her face I knew there was something special about her, something no one else ever saw.

L ove came easy, as it had been like Kismet had brought us together.
A nd yet, all the time I sensed there had been a hidden secret she held from me, because why has she returned her love to me when no one else ever had.
M aybe, I ever received any love in return because most people saw the beast I looked like, and not the person I am inside.
E nduring the pain of no love has finally ended before the FLAME on the candle of my life has burned itself out.
NOTE: Not only have I used the prompt in these five sentences has required, the first letter of each sentence also forms the word

Just found another creative writing site, MagPie Tales [http://magpietales.blogspot.com.au/ ]

The instructions are simple: Write a poem or short vignette using the picture featured in this post as your inspiration. [I can’t seem to be able to copy the picture over to here.]

After thinking about it for a while, I decided to write a series of four different HAIKU

It’ll be just lovely
To look at me from behind
As others usually do

Please, is my hair combed
Without single strand astray
Perfect, glad at last

Are my clothes wrinkled
Because I’ve got no iron
For them to be gone.

Perfection at last
I now can venture outside
To imperfect world

3 + 33 WORDS – REMEMBER RAIN REBELLION

Leave a comment

I’ve just found another writing challenge called TRIFECTA [http://www.trifectawritingchallenge.com/] which offers different types of challenges. In this one you’re given three words and must enter 33 more to complete your response.  This week the three words are:  REMEMBER  RAIN   REBELLION.

This is my response:

 

Do you REMEMBER the day I lead a REBELLION against our dictatorial boss; the RAIN never dampen our fortitude as we stood united without a whimper, and he lost his voice yelling at us we’re fired.

I’d love to hear what you think of it.

 

FIVE SENTENCE FICTION – Paradise

6 Comments

Here’s my five sentence endeavor for Lillie McFerrin’s prompt of “PARADISE” on March 13th on her site  http://www.lilliemcferrin,com

Charlene and her husband Robert had been preparing to go on a two-week twentieth anniversary cruise on their new yacht away from everything including their three children for the past month; loading enough provisions to last a month in case something unexpected should happen. When the day came for them to start everyone had been on the pier to send them off, wishing them well and congratulations on their anniversary. Everything seemed to be going well until the fifth night when a tremendously fierce storm came out of nowhere, tossing their small craft so much they had to seek shelter inside their cabin; and where they both had been knocked unconscious when something fell out of a cabinet and stroke their heads. It wasn’t until well after midnight when they woke up, saw a bright light slowly diminishing, and felt the ocean which instead of vehemently tossing them around now became smooth as glass with the slightest sense of movement; that they hoped a PARADISE would be in sight when daylight broke. When daylight did break, they found them in a lagoon of what appeared to be a PARADISE island when they heard its natives singing; however this imagined soon changed drastically when instead of people like you and me, they saw families of apes frolicking on the beach.

I’m a little late in doing this week’s endeavor for the prompt of “WHISPER” for Lillie McFerrin  http://www.lilliemcferrin.com

A HORRIFIC ERROR

Jennifer rushed into her home with her friends like gangbusters; loud and crude not realizing at first her mother, Barbara, was being questioned by three police officers who standing around her, she wanted to come closer to find out why these officers were here, however her motioned with her eyes to stay away.

As she left with her friends, Jennifer became extremely worried about the police being there and the way they’d been questioning her mother.

At the same time, when these officers no longer could she Jennifer and her friends, now wanted to know who these people where.

“They’re only my daughter and some of her friends,” replied Barbara nervously.

Hearing this, one of the officers pulled the other two aside and whispered, “What do we do now, because the woman we want has no children living with her?”
