Illusion

What if my whole purpose for being is simply to be and I have missed the point completely!

Loop

There was a subtlety to the way she got her point across. No words necessary. The sideways glance, an eye roll! If there was a loop, it was a tight one and you knew instantly if you weren’t  in it.

Create

It was the beginning. Maybe of time, maybe of all things, maybe just of me! It was beautiful, magical, and serene. Although I could see, hear and smell everything, and be everything – nothing was there.

Aesthetic

Daily Prompt: Aesthetic Unconcerned with the notion of things such as the beautiful and the ugly, I wandered around the little cottage with the same excitement as a child on Christmas Eve. She was mine. A little run down, tired looking, and very outdated to say the least, I guess she looked a lot like I felt. Maybe that’s why I…

Maddening

Daily Prompt: Maddening I know I have to do it, but I just can’t seem to gather the energy needed to face the maddening crowd of Christmas shoppers out there this year, all bustling and jolly. Just thinking about walking into another festively decorated shopping centre, Christmas carols playing, shop assistants smiling, makes me want…

Transformation

Daily Prompt: Transformation There was no big bang, no ton of bricks hitting me unawares, it was more a subtle shift, a gradual change. Not only in thought, but feelings and direction too.

Artificial

Daily Prompt: Artificial Her smile as fake as the plastic plant sitting in the corner of the room, her contempt for me obviously hard to hide as she motioned to the chairs in front of her with the sweep of a well manicured hand. We sat! Eric and I gave each other a sideways glance and…

Tree

Daily Prompt: Tree What do you see when you see a tree. I see a trunk, strong and steadfast, unwavering against the strongest storm. I see branches growing from the trunk; some covered in leaves all year round, some not. The trunk doesn’t care, she holds strong and supports her branches no matter what. I…

Daring

Daily Prompt: Daring She is audaciously bold of heart, fearless and brave as she faced the challenges of life. Unafraid, valiant and heroic, she makes me want to be the very best version of me I can be. She is the face of every mother I have ever met. On a daily bases she goes…
