Life on an Even Keel

Sunday, April 20, 2014

Life was a bit unreal
Not on an even keel
So from his perch on high
He would say his last good by



Harold built houses for birds
And wasn't much for words
If the pole was on an even keel
Then he would cut a deal



Oh my, why did he look down?
It's so far to the ground!

Now his stomach's feeling queasy
Dinner sits uneasy
And life's on an uneven keel!



He felt down
Knocked to the ground
Life kind of off keel
Given a raw deal

But why a healthy tree?
The beauty that it held
Again will never be


Grandma gives us a weekly challenge to create a story from her picture using 140 characters/words or less. For extra fun, incorporate her bonus word, which this week is "keel". It's called succinctly yours. Hope you had a great Easter weekend and a blessed week. Mine was awesome.

Wow! Enjoyed them all and could really relate to the fear of heights one. The first struck me as well with its dark theme. I don't see that often in microfiction.

I'm with Grandma - it's cool that you came up with dark themes!

I like # 3 the best, but you did a good job w/all of them. :)
