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

22/93

OR

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

24/109

OR

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!

27/133

OR

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

30/136


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. :)

I am afraid of heights and would be queasy too!
