Saturday Mix — Lorraine 18.02.17

I’m still catching up on my challenges!
This is this week’s three in one:

saturday-mix-18-febAlmost Free on the Fives: write a five line free verse with a total count of 25 words.

Forget your stupid vertigo!
Just get up here and see,
You can always take the lower one,
You won’t regret it, believe me.
Just fly!

Shadorma: a  non-rhyming, six line poem with the following syllable count:  3/5/3/3/7/5. It can consist of one or multiple stanzas.

Use the theme: journey, or the photo, as your inspiration.

My theme is the journey from one life to the next.

Time to go,
Your journey beckons,
Don’t look back,
He’s not there,
But waiting for you ahead,
Just cross the threshold.

And finally my short story:

Person: Bartender  Place : Resort Hotel  Object: Bra

The management had taken him on and he now held a key position in the Residential Cocktail Lounge.
He just needed to invent a Signature Cocktail and the world would be his oyster.
He spied her across the room, the trophy wife always making sly innuendos out of earshot of her sugar daddy husband.
Her dress, or lack of it, consisted of a bejewelled brassiere under a transparent chiffon haze leaving nothing to the imagination.
Making professional small talk, he threw a shot of half a dozen spirits into a shaker, added ice and a slither of mint, then shook it expertly.
Coating the rim of a cocktail glass with sugar and lemon juice, he poured the frothy concoction over 2 olives and watched it bubble.
She sipped.
‘Wow! This packs a kick. What do you call it?
‘Storm in a D Cup’ he replied with a straight face.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    ha! Ha! there used to be a stripper in San Francisco called Tempest Storm. I believe her cups were considerably larger.

    I doubt if I could have kept a straight face if I was on the barstool next to her. Very clever!
    I like your allusion to vertigo and taking flight. And isn’t one of life’s sweetest journeys towards those we love.
    Thanks for participating!
