6 Word Story: 4/23

I have never been to a kite festival and truth be told didn’t even know those existed. I grew up going to hot air balloon races and rodeos. After doing a little research, I learned that there is one this year the next state over. Maybe a future road trip?

Prompt Word: Kite Festival


Flying requirements: Courage, imagination and string.

6 Word Story: 4/20

This kind of reminds me of when I was a little girl I would sit for hours waiting for clouds to pass just to find shapes. When it was particularly clear I would imagine great worlds that were watching me watch them.

Prompt Word: Cloud Animals

Light above, darkness below. Imagination within.

6 Word Story: 3/1

Today’s prompt has got me singing like Judy Garland (or at least that’s what I picture myself sounding like) and thinking about bright colors. Wow…so not me. March’s theme for the #6WordsBetter is Imagination something that I wish I had more of. I am trying to get a grasp on it again through many exercises.

Prompt Word: Over the Rainbow

“Please don’t leave, take me too.”


Sometimes I feel like it has been stolen,
That I cannot grasp what I feel and see.
There are times I feel inspired,
and just as quickly they have left me.

I’ll sit with thoughts at the ready,
but the blank canvas allows them to escape.
Is my self-doubt that deadly?
My imagination is waiting for my surrender.

I was attempting something new and frightening all at the same time. I received advice about writing daily prompts and pinging back to the Daily Post. I figured what the hell? I already submitted writing to other places why not? My imagination has been through the ringer and with having CPTSD there are times I need to reign it in, and then there are times that I need to go searching for it.
