Weekend Writing Prompt #38 – Boundary


Prose Challenge – Write a story in 150 words or less about a boundary that opens with the following:

When I saw it, I couldn’t believe my eyes.  It was all true.
The opening is not to be included in the word count.
When I saw it, I couldn’t believe my eyes.  It was all true.

There were lights everywhere, but suspended completely detached in mid air.
I turned to my escort.
‘I don’t understand,’ I said.
‘This is The Boundary from Life to the Afterlife. The lights you see are souls passing through. The brighter the light, the nearer they are to their destiny. The Boundary is in constant motion.’
‘It’s beautiful. So calming and peaceful.’
‘There is only Love here. Love is endless, and boundless. It cannot be contained, only shared.’
‘I’m beginning to feel a little warm.’
‘You’re glowing. I have a feeling you know what’s coming next.’
‘I was told to follow the light. The question is, which one?’ I laughed.
My companion looked around.
‘There! He’s been waiting for you.’
It had been over twenty years, and he was as young as the day we first met.
‘Hello Kissikins.’ he said. ‘Shall we go?’
I followed his light.

Poetry Challenge – Write a poem of any length that has a rhyming pattern of ABCABC.

Love knows no Boundary

Enwrapped in twinkling starlit skies
Adorned with gold and silver light,
They meet again and kiss.
No more tears or lonely cries,
Hands touch and souls unite
To find eternal bliss.
The end of a thousand sad goodbyes,
A starburst shatters the night
A sight too wondrous to miss.
They say True Love never dies,
For once they may be right,
It doesn’t get better than this.

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! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. 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.
