One-Liner Wednesday – Spring is sprung

May not be original but, it’s my story and I’m stickin’ with it:  “Gratitude is the grease on the wheels of my life.”

Buried Journey

Fandango’s Flash Fiction Challenge #6

Life’s road went on…on

Sands of years drifting over

Relentless, arid

Often obscuring vision

Covering shame, secret heart


Dry grit in mouth, mind

Wind, manic woman sweeping

Grainy tide ne’er ebbs

I walked awhile till feet burned

Journey buried ‘neath gilt dunes

Miraculous Mess

FOWC with Fandango — Makeshift

My makeshift life


Cobbled best efforts, God’s


Glint amid weeds, wobbly bannisters—

Miraculous mess, observers mumble…those familiar with Grace renovation.
