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.
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.

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.
It was the very night before Christmas
We looked and searched around the house
No one could find Santa Clause
We knew he had been bad
Was he escaping?
What flight number?
Two lonely creatures side by side
Each in a make-believe world of their own
Both looking for someone to confide
Still each not conformable in their zone
To parties they each go
Still each in their own house of glass
Each believe they can maintain their status quo
Desperately wishing this too shall pass
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
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?
