Weekend Writing Prompt #97 – Equinox

Sammi’s challenge is simple: each week you will be given an exact number of words you can use to write a poem or piece of prose. You can use any format or style you like; go wherever your inspiration takes you.

‘You’re like the Equinox, do you know that?’ she shouted angrily.
‘What the hell is that supposed to mean? I provide for you and the kids. You want for nothing!’
‘There’s more to life than that. The kids want to see more of you.’
‘Well I can’t be in two places at one time. I have other committments.’
‘Yeah. Right. Isobel.’
‘So?’
‘You’re the centre of the sun over her ample equator, but you should see your kids more than twice a year!’

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.
