PROMPT WORD:  FOCUS

“As we must account for every idle word, so must we account for every idle silence.”
– Benjamin Franklin

“Just like Crosstown Traffic”. It’s a 6.

It’d appeared my footing wasn’t as stable as I’d come to believe, and because believing was the one thing I needed to keep doing, I never saw the train until it hit. A committed relationship had not been part of my immediate “plan”; like a panhandler working the corner of yesterday and today, I kept asking the same question – how did I get here?

…I was coming off a late audition in the West Village, heading to Johnny’s Bar on Greenwich Ave., when the heavens opened up and Zeus let loose a wrath of rain. Jada in casting had given me the wink/nod when I left, and secure enough in myself to appreciate her gesture, decided better to look like a 1950’s movie gangster than get soaked to the bone.

Collar up, fedora strategically pulled over my face, I made a beeline toward the bar’s door, never seeing the woman rushing out -“Hey, don’t bogart the door! Can’t you see I’m in a hurry G man?” Her name was Rowena.

Welcome to GirlieOnTheEdge and the Six Sentence Story Blog Hop. Words. Used individually or grouped, they are the means by which writers communicate.  Words deliver joy and delight, engender sorrow and sadness, provide adventure and thrill, instill fear and uncertainty, offer comfort and escape. Words encourage and motivate, enlighten and stimulate. Words are simply like the air we breath. Whether you contribute a Six Sentence Story this week or stop by for a quick read, enjoy the challenge proffered each week to writers everywhere. I’ll read you soon, my friends. Read you soon 🙂

PROMPT WORD:  STABLE

“Poetry lifts the veil from the hidden beauty of the world, and makes familiar objects be as if they were not familiar.” — Percy Bysshe Shelley

Flash Drive. It’s a 6.

Welcome to GirlieOnTheEdge. As has been the pattern lo these last 2 weeks (call me last minute mama), the “idea for my 6” burst through the door of my cranium somewhere around 7:30 am this morning while driving to work. Wha-hut?! I haven’t written an acrostic since my early school days so not sure if I’m doing this right, lol. As an homage to National Poetry Month, let’s hope my piece qualifies as an acrostic, free verse poem. What say you, Lisa?! You be up on the poetry big time 🙂

May it never stray so far the stars appear as strangers..

Energize and elevate in times of solitude..

Motivate with reminders of strength and immediacy of the day..

Offer blankets of comfort when none can be found elsewhere..

Reinforce only the positive, refusing to indulge the negative..

Yield to infinite possibility, resisting scavengers of time..
