Sunday Writing Prompt “5 by 5” 13th January

Another Sunday challenge I enjoy in which we choose one from each category and weave a tale or poem around them:
https://wordpress.com/read/feeds/19271780/posts/2133699930

Our choices to work with this week:

A Special Occasion
Moving, Anniversary, Engagement, Graduation, Just Because.

A Texture
Malleable, Embossed, Knitted, Blistered, Jagged

A Feeling Word
Despair, Rapture, Expectancy, Resignation, Mortification

A Sound
Cracking, Tinkling, Sobbing, Grinding, Rustling

Something Seen in the Periphery
A shadowy figure moving at a staccato pace
An intermittent flicker of light
The expression of a companion not meant to be witnessed
Colorful geometric shapes
A vehicle speeding off

The embossed invitations to her engagement party were due to go out that week, but her excitement had turned to despair when they told her.
Her sobbing echoed through the house, her mother holding her close as the vehicle sped off with her ‘fiance’ and best friend inside.

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 recently lost our beloved dog 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, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. 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.

    Everyone’s nightmare isn’t it.

    • It happens, but better to find out before the wedding. I should have heeded my own reservations and not got married the first time, although there was no-one else involved, just a mistake on both parts.
