Leaving Today

“Today’s image took on a sadness within me. So, I decided to let it tell its story in this little poem.”

I wrote this story for the following prompts.
Ragtag Daily Prompt — Chaos
Pensitivity’s Three Things Challenge — Tired – Worn – Playful
Your Daily Word — Inquire
Fandango’s One Word Challenge — Harried
Fandango’s Flash Fiction Challenge — The picture above from  Erdbeerstern @ DeviantArt.com.

Leaving Today

There she was in the underworld
Tired, worn and harried
From the chaos of life unfurled
Fore the sake of being unmarried

Beneath the bridge, she waits
For a bus to the future
An appointment to inquire the fates
Shame he was a great and playful smoocher

Maybe she’d travel for days
For now, all she could do was roam
Now her life was ablaze
And she sought a happy home


Don’t forget Holly Ward investigates, Stolen Treasures is out on Amazon now!

A recent bank robbery. A saddened man. A coded message. Can they all be connected?
Young Sleuth Holly Ward is determined to help the man. It’s not long before she too comes under assault from a group of dangerous individuals. In the face of intimidation, abduction and even murder can Holly solve the clues and catch the criminals before she becomes the next Stolen Treasure?


Thanks for reading my friends.

There’s more in the Poetry CornerPoetry Nook, and the Short Story Collection

Have a great day!
