Haiku Heights/ABC Wednesday in Sunday Prompts

Coming in a trance,

Tragedies take place in flocks,

Not much can be done.

All of a sudden,

Nature manifests its power,

Winds howl, raindrops prowl.

So little being done,

So much for me to do,

Pardon me, sweet you.

I make many choices,

Yet when tornadoes show blues,

I lose voices and clues.

Short Story Slam Week 2-What Does Ruby Want?

Ruby’s birthday is only a week away, she is going to be 10.

Here he is, Tom, Ruby’s Dad, on his way to buy his daughter a birthday gift. Thinking of the excitement on Ruby’s face, Tom runs faster, with his horse Nally.

Life on prairie could be dangerous. Wolves, bandits and natural disasters may hit them unexpectedly. It is end of May here, the temperature is fitting, but there was a tornado two days ago near their hometown  and the family is safe because they have a shelter underground, some food supplies plus bottled water are stored there.

It’s getting hard and harder to come up with a birthday gift for Ruby. She almost has everything a girl ever dreamed of: loving parents, teddy bears, Barbie dolls, a kitten, and a puppy…her Mother Sarah has been home-schooling Ruby….and now, she is getting a pony. Life could not be better.

Tom is wrong, Ruby is depressed for quite some years now, she is a girl growing up barely getting out of her home, despite times she spends outdoor playing with her puppy or kitten.

Ruby wants something, something she could hardly think of it concretely.

Here is a list of things that might help Ruby:

1):  a friend of her age

2): going to public school

3): a younger sibling

4): living in a city

Can you add yours if none of the above works in your personal perspective? What do you want if you were Ruby?

Have  fun!

More Than One Single Impression (Poetry Potluck Welcomes You!)

Poets are sensitive souls

who have solid goals,

They are haunted by sadness

and end up in madness.

Solutions solve problems,

Keys unlock doors,

How things work out,

It depends on concrete situations of yours.

Never surrender to bumble bees,

No fear of rambling weeds,

Provide shades to lazy cows,

Offer friendship to lonely owls.

running water is never stale,

A door-hinge never gets worm-eaten,

As long as the green mountains are there,

One need not worry about firewood.

Fishing fish,

Baking bacon,

Guarding garden,

Seizing season.

Hard to Fulfill Life’s Proposal (Poets Rally Entry in 55 words)

A function may be transcendental,
A mind is emotional;
A pain may be mental,
A cut on hand is physical;
A product may be artificial,
A concert is musical…
Hard to fulfill
life’s proposal,
Some incidents are meant to be confidential;
The look of twins may be identical,
Yet, their stories are absolutely

Into The Distance I Look (3rd Entry 4 Short Story Slam)

Along the river we run,

The scenes in sight are fun,

Reindeers, peacefully enjoy a walk,

Birds, cheerfully singing to talk.

Of creatures that are about,

The swimming ducks truly stand out,

Into the distance I look,

Cheery blossom hang above the brook.

Clouds, quietly sail by,

The Sun, naughty and shy.

Of the joy and pain you obtain,

An adventure on a hot air balloon

will keep you from living in vain.


My 3rd entry to Short Story Slam:


Everyone is welcome to join us!


A short story (4 short story slam)

Supported by twin brother,

Cared for by widowed mother,

Ben has achieved the highest education,

And married princess Quinn of the nation.


Ben and Quinn are a perfect pair,

while Ben worked as an officer.

Together their happiness grow,

The expression on their faces always glow.


Their magical marriage lasted only three months long,

Before Ben accidentally fell off a hot air balloon and gone.

To keep fame and money from vanishing,

Dan is encouraged to be Ben, how astonishing.


Dan does not have the intelligence Ben has had,

But he looks exactly like Ben as sons of their Dad.

Dan and Quinn eventually fall in love,

Life seems as innocent as a dove.


Three years later comes a surprise,

Things become touchy as truth rise:

Ben did not die,

His coming home makes everyone cry.


Mother is excited with fears,

Dan is shocked with tears,

Quinn is showered with guilt,

Ben is swept by insult.


Each member begins self-blaming,

Nobody knows the solution.

Ben has lost everything,

Part of him still wants back his official position.


The incident is passed to the Queen,

Princess Quinn wants both Ben and Dan to win.

But family taboo only permits ONE single man,

Sadness towers Quinn like a sharp pin.


The Queen is determined to cover the truth,

and she managed to sentence Ben to death.

Ben’s mother killed herself in deep grief,

leaving Dan and Quinn alive in disbelief.


PS:this is a sad story, handsome and intelligent Ben has changed his fate with the support of his twin brother and widowed mother, and married the fairest girl, Princess Quinn, yet, an accident has everything changed for good, he fell off the hot air balloon during a family vacation, and considered dead by his loving family.

Quinn wants to be rich and wealthy as usual, she came up the idea of making a false announcement that it is Dan who is dead, her hubby Ben is still alive, thus she begins to live with Dan, the pretending “Ben”, and their faked marriage actually flourished, they fall in love and behave like a real couple, a baby is on the way, as the family celebrate and enjoy life’s sunshine, Ben suddenly appeared.

Ben did not die, he survived and was sentenced to the jail for three years for claiming himself as Ben the son in law of the King  at a locale state, because everyone knows that  “Ben” is in the capital city doing his duty happily. His homecoming did not increase joy to the family, fears, sadness, and guilt mixed with love, it is hard to choose what to do next, until the Queen decides to save the FACE of her royal family and make the real prince Ben die …

Ben is innocent, but truth does not serve/save him, even his best friend has to tell lies in the court to protect himself, POWER wins over justice…

This is part of life!
