Lake Delusion

100 Word Wednesday: Week 11

~~~

It was where we fell in love—I did, anyway; lovely Shangri-la, waters which reflected our private world, mirroring happiness and thoughts of forever.

I didn’t mind that you were older—you made me feel like a woman of the world, and you said I kept you young.  Every day shimmered…the nights, oh how they shone.

Then you were gone—winter descended, became an icecap on passion’s volcano.

I’ve returned only twice since your death.  Peering into the lake, I see an old deluded relict* staring back—tears rippling down her rippled cheeks, like mourning rain unrestrained.

(*relict, archaic—a woman whose husband is dead, especially one who has not remarried)

Lucky Charms Eluded

Bruce’s prompt:  Lucky Charms

xo~♠~♣~♥~♦~ox

~~~

Lucky, he was:

Magna cum laude

Without studying

So he crowed…some confirmed;

Corner office, The Firm

He wow-ed The Board;

Gold, Silver, Platinum cards

Vehicles to match.

Charms…he had burnished veneer:

Armani waft

Romantically glib

Expert technique

(Shallow substance);

He’d marry vapid arm-decor

Hyphenated name.

… Fortunate, I eluded him.

Awning’d Door

Inspired by the prompt at https://haikuhorizons.wordpress.com/https://haikuhorizons.wordpress.com/2017/03/26/haiku-horizons-prompt-door/

Unmarked door awaits

Hidden in each awning’d day

If we but pause, breathe

~

If we but pause, breathe

Much more yet to be revealed

Cracked windows of hope

~

Cracked windows of hope

Awning’d door near cliff’s blurred edge

Pause, take closer look

Purple Malaise

Although this post flies far afield of the purpose of the WordPress Daily Word Prompt, I am endeavoring to find my feet, get back on track, etc etc—and have managed to combine 5 daily word prompts into 1 Cinquain.  Grateful thanks to my loyal readers who wait patiently for me 🙂

Skip Donuts for Big Sandwich (3LineTales)

Three Line Tales, Week 60

The donut diet definitely had to go.

Quality Meats sounded kinda good, but didn’t that mean cooking?

Sandwiches might be the answer—turkey, pastrami, with plenty of cheese piled on thick Sweet Hawaiian bread…and chips.
