Monday.. Monday.. Please Hurry By.. Take the Moods Away With You..

"It is impossible to discourage the real writers - they don't give a damn what you say, they're going to write." ~Sinclair Lewis

"Dancing in all its forms cannot be excluded from the curriculum of all noble education; dancing with the feet, with ideas, with words, and, need I add that one must also be able to dance with the pen?" ~Friedrich Nietzsche

"Writing is both mask and unveiling." ~E.B. White

Microfiction Monday #57 ~

Border Patrol

standing silent in the shadow of the rock.. the meanest man I ever saw..
I wanted to go home.. he said I had to stay inside
~ Saturday Centus ~ week 28


The early November sunshine cast golden rays.. the sweet scents of roses and carnations filling the afternoon air.. the crowd smiled and posed for the camera.. silently I looked on in awe.. had we not suffered .. where were the tears.. I wanted to scream "pull up your pants" and "put away that camera".. but I could not.. my grief kept me mute.. a glint of light caught in his rich dark hair as he stumbled away.. a young man's hand his tender guide.. Our lives changed forever.. a circus for some.. "Did you hear" I heard.. as I turned away.. willing for now to be deaf...

~ Reuben and Sheila

Yesterday's celebration of Love was a beautiful respite from the last few weeks of grief and darkness.... Reuben and his BFF.. Shelia.. joined in Holy Matrimony... I welcome some smiles and sunshine into my world.. thanks for stopping by my blog today.. I welcome both comments and followers....
Have a great day!

Visiting from Saturday Centus. Your piece was beautifully written. I'm sorry for your loss, hopefully writing this was cathartic for you. Kat

Teresa said...

Quite the eclectic post. Your Saturday Centus is certainly one of raw emotion.

Viki said...

Very haunting Saturday Centus. A lot of questions, unanswered for me. Good job though.

Powerful writing. Your angst is palpable and I send you all my sympathy and good energy.


Koby said...

Nothing like that ol "how in the heck is the world still revolving when I'm suffering such horrible grief?" feeling...? Sucks, but I loved your writing.

Tgoette said...

Wow, you captured the essence of grief and loss so beautifully. Great job with such a difficult subject.

Anna said...

Well-described grief. It is unclear to me what is fact and what is fiction here. If it is fact, I am sorry for your loss.
Best wishes,
Anna's SC wk 28

Hope all is well with you...or will be, in time.

Beautiful expression of grief and loss.

I can feel your pain in the words, even without reading the content here.

This was beautifully written. I hope some of the healing begins with the telling.

Thank you for linking.

Hugs and hope from Arizona.
