PROMPT: Six-Word Memoir

Where has all the time gone? 


Moonlight does little for my eyes. 

Forever a memory of the future.

Could it not be seven words?


Just kidding, only kidding; am I?

Honestly, though, I see no reason.

God help me to find meaning.

All I do is keep being.

Another day lost, regret to follow.

Lyrics and notes and billy goats.

I have Midyear Exams next week.

Act two but act one unfinished.

PROMPT: New Year Competition

There was something different about this year, the one you asked about.

Perhaps because it was my first year; the first year.

There have been many years since this beginning one, but each of them feels more like an instant, with no transitions between them. A close friend of mine, Lux, is rather fast like these years, too. We used to race when we were kids, but I hardly have the ability to reach a desination as she does, so my efforts then were pointless. She has...

There have been many years since this beginning one, but each of them feels more like an instant, with no transitions between them. A close friend of mine, Lux, is rather fast like these years, too. We used to race when we were kids, but I hardly have the ability to reach a desination as she does, so my efforts then were pointless. She has much more direction, where as I am quite all over the place... I am so busy that I actually do feel I can be everywhere at once, despite what science claims. You can say what you want about me, but one thing for sure is your doubtful remarks will never slow me down; I refuse to stop.

You should know this is hard for me in that I don't often reflect on my past. I haven't changed a bit and I certainly...

Life Through A Window

Inbetween

My bedroom window is really two windows; they're split on the corner of my house that was later built as an addition and juts awkwardly out onto my back yard. From the left window, I can see the old house -- the small part that's stood strong and sturdy and has contained my family for 17 years straight. On the second floor, if I poke my head out far enough, I can see my younger brother through his bedroom window, sitting at his desk, pretending to do homework but instead texting a friend.

Further in the back yard, against the big oak tree -- the one that used to scare me when I was little because of its creeping spider-like arms -- there is an uneven patch of grass that lies beneath the fairy house my sister made last Sunday afternoon.

This structure is of the same kind I used to build when I was little.

How about that? Looking...

Out of Paper

Dad.

We hit the bottom of the money jar today.

First time in two months.

Personal record.

Maybe we'll get a reward.

Maybe we won't have to pay our rent next month.

Mom.

Didn't have enough sugar for Josie's cookies today.

We sent bread and jam from yesterday's breakfast instead.

Josie still smiled on her way to school.

It didn't matter to her.

Today was her tenth birthday.

And she was happy to have a school to go to.

Josie.

I finished my book today.

The one about the sailor.

He goes on a long journey all around the world,

searching for the treasure that will bring him the most happiness.

He finds knowledge.

He finds money.

He finds fame.

He stopped searching and went home,

because that was the best treasure of all.

Today, I went all the way to school and all the way back home.

I dropped the bread on the way to school by accident.

I...
