99 Words ~ I’d Rather Be . . .

In love with a person in love with me
No other place on earth ‘I’d rather be’

Dear Lord, I plead grant me a miracle
Decade dates round and round circles

Time passes friends arrive gone soon
Unable understand reason misfortune

Bad things good people thou resonate
Failures versus successes odds postulate

Behavioral patterns time change dream grandiose
Male population present billions inhabit cosmos

Exude warmth radiate confidence double-check
Ne’er again role play thee innocent pencil-neck

Self-care journey exercises journaled full-blown
Honesty practice still best policy thee e’er known

Summer months ahead hopeful become faith over fear winner.

Six Sentence Stories

prompt word: redemption

Near closing time an unkempt older man entered the local can

redemption center store carrying twenty-count super strength

multi-purpose garbage bags chock full of discarded semi-dirty

soda bottles, beer cans and plenty of germs.

Immediately upon spotting the semi-drunk character, the

clerk’s facial smile turned upside down, a new look, a frown

and toute de suite he played quite the disappearing act via

removing himself in record time from the front counter to the

storage room out back in hopes the man would become a

bit befuddled, imagine he’d seen a ghost and run for the hills.

Unfortunate for the clerk, who’d cashed out the drawer early,

his plan backfired when the man started screaming obscenities.

The redemption center walls shook from the sound waves, as

emissions from the unkempt man’s mouth bounced off every

inch of the building’s concrete walls.

Who’d have thought a human’s vocal tone could roar like a lion

or high-powered engine.

It was time for the clerk to place a fake smile on his face, return

to the counter and deal with the situation since the realization

set in the man wasn’t about to leave the premises without a ward

of cash.

First glance of the pic led me to believe this animal species could possibly be the
