Quibbling or Nibbling?

Sunday, June 22, 2014

She signed up on ten matchmaking sights
With never a nibble
And now she was anxious to meet her match
Even if he looked like dribble



Never anything more than a nibble
But he had no time to quibble
He'd catch a ride back into town
Where some real fish could be found



She took a big bite
Then just a nibble
It was time to move on
Not time to quibble
Then there he stood
Just outside her window...


Grandma offers a weekly micro-fiction challenge called succinctly yours. She provides the photo and we provide our imagination in writing a short story of 140 characters or words or less. Our bonus word is "nibble". How low can you go?


These Boots aren't Walking

Sunday, June 15, 2014

The abusive relationship caused emotional distraught
He stacked his boots in an effort not to be caught



He stacked the boots
Like details in life
Ever so perfect
Matching his wife
Knowing she was leaving
Caused him distress
An upheaval ..a mess!



Hidden in plain sight
Was the best way
He'd never find them
While on display
'Membering the upheaval caused
Now he'd think his boots were lost


Grandma has outdone herself this week with her challenge.  The photo above requires a story containing 140 characters/words or less. The bonus word is "upheaval."  You can see that I didn't work it into the first poem. Visit Grandma at succinctly yours and see how low you can go. 

Thanks for your visit. Take care and God bless!
