Kicking up your Heels!

Sunday, February 23, 2014

She knew her shoes 
Didn't get there on their own 
But would she have seen them 
If she wasn't playing her xylophone?
 115

OR

I wonder how those shoes got up there
Said Sandra as she lifted her eyes high
Blowing into her xylophone
Watching the clouds roll by
130

OR

She glanced from the paper to the sky
Memorizing spelling words
Like xylophone
Was a sure way to make time go by.
114

Grandma offers a weekly challenge called succinctly yours. Her picture displayed above should illicit a story from you of 140 characters/words or less. She even offers a bonus word to make it more fun. This week it is xylophone. Take her challenge! How low can you go? I used Design 215 to aid in my character counting.

Jibber Jabber

Sunday, February 16, 2014



He taught her pantomime 
Tiring of her jabber 
She enjoyed the mime 
And hoped theater 
Would have her. 
 90

OR

Hands of black
Heart of gold
If only she didn't jabber
All she was told...
74

OR

There was a girl
Her name was Jabber
Her Daddy was Grabber
And Mama, Blabber
76

My Microsoft word is giving me  headaches, so I resorted to using Design 215 for character counting. I just couldn't pass up Grandma's weekly micro-fiction challenge called succinctly yours. It's always fun and the diversion is awesome. Grandma asks that we participate using her photo as inspiration and create a 140 word/character short story. Join Grandma and show us how low you can go. The bonus word this week is jabber.

She's all Ears!

Are you for real
The dog’s name is Zeal?
32/39

OR...

Valentine’s the day to show
That your love is real you know
So just to express how I feel
I gift you with a dog named Zeal
96/119

OR...

Everything she did
She did with zeal
She bought Brownie
To help him heal
Pinned a heart
Upon her lovely neck
And prayed her gift
Would do the trick
119/140

Grandma does a weekly challenge called succinctly yours. She provides a photo and it is our job to write a short story of 140 characters/words or less. This week our bonus word is "Zeal". (Didn't we just have that one a few weeks ago?) lol How low can you go?

Something is Shady here!

Sunday, February 2, 2014


My lady please sign
For the fragrant maid’s overtime
Oh the stink that will be made
If she is not paid!
83/100

OR...

The fragrant young lady
Knew something was shady
Ambiguous words to trick her
But they could not out slick her.
92/108

OR...

The tailor awaited
His fragrant breath bated
Would she pay what he asked
Before completion of task?
83/96

Grandma is up to her old tricks again, giving us a delightful challenge that is! She posts a photo and it is our pleasure to write a short short story using 140 characters/words or less. For even more fun, incorporate the challenge words, which this week is "fragrant".  Thanks Grandma for creating succinctly yours!
