Daily Prompt: Crumb

Crumbs sometimes they can’t be avoided

when your eating something so good.

You try to avoid a mess but when something like crumb cake

or anything that is so good.

Usually comes with crumbs and you try your best to not make a mess and look like a slob but when something so good that each bite just makes you so happy.

What you look like after eating it isn’t a worry or a concern for you, your just happy to enjoy the meal or snack when you can.

Daily Prompt: Penchant

I have a strong passion for writing and just letting it all out

until I’ve drained every emotion inside me.

That sometimes I have to take a break from writing for I’m just burned out but, sometimes even then I keep trying to come up with something.

Through my writing I find understanding, healing and freedom to just be who I want to be and write the way that feels good to me.

No walls are left standing when I get through writing about the reality of my life or coming up with something clever in the moment.

To have that feeling when a piece is just so great that you believe and trust no matter how many people enjoyed it, it was something great because you felt the greatness before you hit that publish button.

It’s one of the things you look forward to get to do everyday and night, even times when you’re so tired.

You just drag yourself to write a piece short and sweet because you just need to write and leave your mark out there for another day.

Daily Prompt: Anticipate

She was looking forward to a couple of days off when her mind didn’t have to over work it’s self for a little while.

The feeling she felt was so surreal as she waited for her turn for the last couple of days had been a challenge.

And now it was her time to shine and to finally show them all that she was worth through her words and she would not let anyone get in her way as the lights dimmed.

And, She walked out onto the stage with so much confidence and hope that it will all go well.

Then, as she finished when she thought no one would clap.

The noise overwhelmed her as so many stood up and clapped for her and even some stopped afterwards and asked her if she had a book of all her work for they wanted more.

They had felt like she had opened their eyes to something beautiful and they wanted to experience so much more than what they just heard.

Daily Prompt: Enamored

He was enchanted by her beauty

that he didn’t see the red flags that were flashing in front of his eyes.

Until it was too late and her enchanted beauty melted away and her beauty was nowhere to be found.

She was as nasty as her attitude and even though she was not ugly

the way she treated everyone made everyone see her as a nasty mean-spirited woman.

At first they couldn’t believe their eyes that she was with him and that he truly seemed to like her and thought she treated everyone with some respect.

But, when the spell that had him enchanted and gotten himself involved with.

It was like waking up from a nightmare and realizing it wasn’t just a dream but reality all along.

Doing what I love to do

100 Word Wednesday: Week 34


Don Naman Photography 2017

As my fingers pluck the right strings on my favorite guitar and I begin to play and sing for the crowd.

I know that I’m in the right place at the right time and this show is going to be another great night for me.

As I get into the show and I become even more worked up by the energy the crowd is giving me as they sing along to my songs.

I have flashbacks to the moments when the crowd was so small and most of my guest were family and friends and a couple of drunks dancing along in the background.

I know now with a crowd going all way around the corner and that way before the show starts, I just can’t imagine what it looks like when it gets closer to when the doors open.

But, I love what I do and I won’t trade it in for anything in the world.

Doing what I love to do!


Daily Prompt: Visceral

Deep down she knew the feelings she had for him

would come back up again even though it’s been a long time.

Like the deep well in the village it would take a long time for her to

build up the courage to say anything to him.

Some days she felt it would be okay to not say anything at all and just move forward

but other days it felt like she needed to just say it and get out the way.

But, she knows that this matter is sensitive and should be told in person and she needs to make sure she says it right and clear to get her message out.

Because, not everything that is kept deep down should be let out into the light.
