Five Sentence Fiction — Moments


In response to Lille McFerrin Five Sentence Fiction Challenge:

Five Sentence Fiction is about packing a powerful punch in a tiny fist. Each week she will post a one word inspiration, then anyone wishing to participate will write a five sentence story based on the prompt word. Poem written in the American Sentence style.

Story about someone born with one kidney and after many years of dialysis keeps fighting until the end.

Thanks to Bjorn!

Except for the constant soft beating of the machine, it is quiet.

You lay still, never even a twitch,  with that awful thing in your throat.

Few visitors come to see what remains of the  once beautiful you.

Most people are born with two but someone decided you only get one.

Sleep little sister knowing that everything was done for you this day.

Picture It & Write: Move On

The slithering snake looks directly at me.

He knows my unconscious drives and hidden desires.

All of them disguised as temptations.

He is aware of the deep changes in my life are involved.

Recognizing my grieving process as I leave the past.

These feelings of sadness, loss, depression.

The dark snake calls for me to grow, transform, and move on.

To understand the awareness of me and what matters in my life.

On the Road: Venice, a Nonet

If you could pause real life and spend some time living with a family anywhere in the world, where would you go?

Photographers, artists, poets: show us TRAVELS.

On The Road: Venice


This sanctuary on a lagoon

Was conquered by Napoleon

High water a fact of life

Decayed since its hey-day

Buy water proof shoes


Rialto Bridge



Non Sequitur, Nonet

The challenge today:

Write a post about anything you’d like, but be sure to include this sentence somewhere in the final paragraph:

“He tried to hit me with a forklift!”


He tried to hit me with a forklift!

Most would call him a reformist

Men will have to see this gore

Neptune’s ocean wash this blood

Making the green one red

Wait, there is more!

See you not?

Look Out!
