Does it make you feel something?

Flight – Five Sentence Fiction


newfsfbadge-1 (1)

I love Five Sentence Fiction!! This is probably one of my favorite writing prompts 🙂

Five Sentence Fiction – Flight

She was nervous and excited, scared and exhilarated, and felt twenty years younger. She couldn’t believe she was doing this. She hated to fly and hadn’t in decades and now she had jumped from a perfectly good airplane. Rushing into the wind, she had pulled the ripcord. Now she was flying and floating through the air like a bird, with a view that couldn’t be described.

(OOOhh  . . . maybe I’ll use this in my NaNoWriMo! 😉 )

An Honest Deception ( NaPoWriMo 4-16-14)


napo2014button2

Using today’s NaPoWriMo prompt from Daisy Fried, – the basic idea is to write a ten-line poem in which each line is a lie. Here you go 🙂 

 

As February has 31 days

And the Sun circles the Earth ten different ways

Each morning the sun rises in the west

And your last guess is always the best

Remember people never lie

And if you live righteously you’ll never die

Being in love always lasts forever

Will the good times end – oh no never

People will always love each other

No one will ever kill another’s brother

What if I hadn’t called him?

What if he’d called me back?

What if I’d handled some things in my life differently?

What if I was someone else?

What if the sun doesn’t come up tomorrow morning? What if it never set?

What if time stopped? What if it were turned back?

What if God didn’t love me?

What if my guardian angels quit?

What if I didn’t wake up in the morning? What if I never existed?

What if I was granted second-sight?

What if I didn’t like what I saw? Then again, what if I did?

What if I’d never had the pleasure of making love?

What if I hadn’t been blessed with my child?

What if my marriage fails? What if our relationship disintegrates?

What if I won the lottery?!

What if I didn’t care?

What if I didn’t ‘what if’ all the time?

What if I was happy and satisfied?

What if my life was a disaster?

What if I was rich and famous? What if I had no friends?

What if I had no future? What if I had no plans?

What if I lost twenty pounds? What if I gained thirty?

What if I dyed my hair red? What if it turns gray?

What if I didn’t know what I know about the past?

What if he hadn’t told me how he really felt?

What if I died without knowing these things?

What if someone special hadn’t died? What if someone else had?

What if . . . what if . . . what if …?

What if my life amazes me and I amaze myself?

I can live without knowing all these things, as I have no choice!

Easier To See


 

napo2014button2

 

Lately it’s been easy for me to put myself inside someone else’s head —

Maybe cause it’s easier to think like them than like me.

My world’s pretty complicated these days —

Looking through someone else’s’ eyes it’s easier to see.

Life Changing Moment in Time


napo2014button2

 

I’d like to say that you changed my life –

But you didn’t  . . . oh but you did!

What wasn’t done or said speaks as loud

Or was it a scream?

 

Years apart, minds in synch

Wasn’t it funny, things we think.

I remember every conversation –

Except that one  . . .

 

Haven’t seen you in awhile,

Hope you’re happy.

Getting on with your life,

Making the most of your dreams.

Rites of spring are here

Butterflies are fluttering

Trees are breathing new

The Blizzard of Life


napo2014button2

 

 

Life is like a raging blizzard

Oh so blinding and frigidly cold

There’s a hint of warmth in the noonday sun

Yet the coldness beckons and becomes more bold

 

My mind is heavy like the treetops

Heavy laden with ice and snow

My soul is withered like the foliage

That has died or ceased to grow

 

My heart is breaking like the rock

That splits apart from eroding ice

At times it feels like things are hopeless

But my thread of faith must suffice

 

Spreading its warmth to melt the snow

At some point, the sun will win

And like the seasons, my mood will change

Till the melancholy winter comes ’round again

Texas Gulf Coast in the Spring


 

Bluebonnets on the roadside

Pleasant days and cooler nights

A breeze playing the windchimes

A young man catches your eye

 

Crawfish boils with potatoes and corn

Redbuds sprouting purple on the trees

Laughing with friends on the patio

Watching the growth of all being born

 

A deer in the field watching its fawn

An armadillo killed on the run

Picking dewberries along the fence line

Daylight savings time makes the day long

 

Catching specs, drums and reds in the bay

Eating strawberries at the festival

Drinking margaritas in the sun

Texas in the spring – It can take your breath away!
