Afternoon Interlude. It’s a 6.

We interrupt our weekly post apocalyptic world story (“Zombies and puppies“) for a bit of something else. Our intrepid trio of supreme survivors shall return post haste…


Heaven calculates, postulates and otherwise considers whilst I sit quietly and patiently by your side. As moments and minutes, a lifetime of living play upon memory’s field, a deliberation has begun. Not a single sunrise nor moonrise, not a single star eclipsed has gone unnoticed on your watch. Devoted to those designated worthy, yours a friendship forged in fierce allegiance. Love gifted generously, unconditionally. Embracing all of what life has lain at your feet; still heaven calculates, postulates and otherwise considers.

    I like the repeating phrase “heaven calculates, postulates and otherwise considers” at the beginning and end of the story.

    So beautiful, Denise. With words you have painted a scene that feels so very familiar. His handle is there all through your SSS.

      Thank you, Pat. As I wrote this piece, I realized if you were reading this week, you would identify. There is comfort knowing one is not alone.

    Creative overdrive (not a surprise 🙂)!
    Handle also reads as Heaven as not devoted love (but) embracing all…[cue the Peace train!]

    Good wordage. (Have never quite gotten a handle* on the acrostic thing,)

    That said, your Six is possessed of that ineffable quality of taking hold of the Reader and pulling them along a predetermined path.

    * see what I did there?**
    ** I’m hoping Chris and Ford will notice and I’ll get to hangout with them more

      Thank you, Clark. Perhaps not, however, your pun has been duly noted and ranks on the punometer 😀

      Again, I appreciate your feedback and observations.

      *indeed, I did.
      ** I’ve no doubt 🙂
