Carrot Ranch prompt
write a story using the phrase “into the dark.” What must a character face? Write about an encounter, journey, relationship, or quest. Follow the ship’s lights on gloomy seas. Go where the prompt leads you.
Into the dark, we crawled
on hands and knees
“Where is the fountain suppose to be Phil?”
“Phil, why don’t you answer me?”
That’s just like Phil
bringing me on adventures
that end into nightmares
A few more arthritic crawls ahead
and I hear a faint trickling murmur
momentarily, this calms my frantic nerves
My fingers touch dampness
then drop into a foamy pool of water
Way above this pool, a light opens up
Phil’s self-satisfied smirk
looking down at me
“Phil! How did you get up there?”
The light goes out
V.J.’S WEEKLY CHALLENGE #25: UN-LIVED LIVES
The second of five siblings, I was born in 1943 to a young couple in their early twenties. My parents were poor, my mother had very little education. I lived at home with them until I married in 1963. There is 16 years difference between myself and my youngest sister.
When I lived at home my clothes were, hand me downs, either from my mother’s friends daughters or mother’s own clothes that a seamstress would refashion for me.
When I left home to marry my father was working for the Government. Through advancement, he was transferred to England in a Diplomatic position. My sisters, 16 and 14 years my juniors were the recipient of a Nanny, skiing in the Alps, Cruise ship voyages and private schools. They all travelled through Europe for several years during my father’s Diplomat posting.
The contrast between the life I had with my parents and that of my younger sisters is striking. My shoes had pieces of carboard inside them to fill the holes in the sole.
I had many wonderful trips and adventures with my own children and husband. Once my children left home, it all came to a stop. Due to cancer and then disability issues, I am unable to travel.
Unlived lives? Not quite!
When I look back I know that it was all perfect then just as it is today.
It made me appreciate all that I do have now. It has served me well. Today I have all that I need.
Another chapter of my life is here now and that is for another story.
Sue Vincent’s #writephoto prompt = untrodden
Thursday photo prompt: Untrodden #writephoto
River of Tears
bottomless well of sadness
reside within me
ages of previous lives
forbidden escape to tears
untrodden domain of repression
thunderous primal scream
reverberating through infinity
blocked tears continue to swell
when life is no more
sadness will follow
navigating ocean of tears
fully extend the sails
