A parallel universe

Looking into a mirror

You see everything in reverse

A parallel universe, just opposite

Have you ever thought of jumping in it like Alice

To experience that world in reverse

Or like me you have wasted many hours

Just thinking of the possibilities

Of existing in a parallel universe

On the beach

Bucket – Image by KL Caley

For visually challenged writers, the image shows a blue bucket and a yellow spade surrounded by sand.

➰➰➰

Spend some time 
Playing on the beach
Make a sand castle
Or a dragon and a knight
Be the child that wants to play
Forgo the inhibitions
Let the inner child
Come out to play

➰➰➰

WDYS # 136 -A Roundup post

Migraine

My head is ready to explode

Tears of pain seep through closed eyelids

I’m desperate for relief, even a little bit

Holding my head and praying for a miracle

Weathering the storm of time

RXC PROMPT#233

ravaged inner space
unable to account for
entries and exits
who came, who destroyed, who left?
a soul transformed forever

➰➰➰

The sands of time are relentless

The grains tumbling down without ceasing

What changes, what stays the same, it doesn’t concern it

Slowly the scenario changes, focus shifts

Lives are built, fortunes rise and fall

Time passes uncaring and unconcerned

Insidiously, it changes us all within and without

In memory of…..

May 30, 2022, prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less), write a story behind a memorial. Is it a structure, plaque, or something else? What does it seek to remind those who view it? Go where the prompt leads!

➰➰➰

A faded sepia print in an old-fashioned silver frame is all that I have of my paternal grandmother.

Her eyes, much like those of my father and mine are serious in a face devoid of any makeup. The frame sits on a table in the family room where I often look at it. I remember her, if not with affection, but with admiration.

She looked after us siblings, three young children aged 4 – 8 when my mom passed away. I’m sure we must’ve taxed her patience to the limit but she was always fair.

May she rest in peace.

Word count; 99

Well of kindness

Well – Image by KL Caley

For visually challenged writers, the image shows a path amongst some foliage leading to a pyramid-shaped building.

➰➰➰

Never be ashamed to show kindness

Never let this well run dry

When someone is kind to you

Pass it on to strangers

Let not this chain break

Spread and propagate

Kindness everywhere

WDYS # 135 -A Roundup post

Let me sit on the verdant green

Let me savor the peace and quiet

Life is busy, fast paced for us all

Let’s take a moment to rest here

The shade of the trees is inviting

The soft grass beckons us to sit

Just for a little while
