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