Written for Poets United's Midweek Motif: Animation

short story slam week 32: how about stories or experiences unexpected?


Word Prompts:  

Sentence prompts: 
Then it hit me like...
The breeze came through the window...
I love...
Into the puddle...

here is my entry:

past memories resolved
by present cold rain,
not to stir the embers,
not to punch on icy wall,
i let my sensitivity hide behind the door

a shadow under moonlight,
the flash from the gap through the window
all darkness shakes me hard and wide
I trust faith
yet seek love,

the way a foot steps into the puddle
reminds me of the ripples
and some say, stay quiet,
others say, remain calm,
I choose autumn air, free of Facebook follower fight

You got it right, Lucinda! Reverting back to good old days close to nature. FB is such a bore!

I like the way you use the words!
I don't think I've even checked my Facebook account in more than a year. At first it was a way to keep in touch. Then it became all about gossip and drama. No thanks, not for me!

Thanks for visiting me at

I don't know what your last phrase means--Facebook Follower Fight--but I find phrases like this "i let my sensitivity hide behind the door" highly evocative and fun to think about animating. This would make a great video--a loss of and constant remembering to stay poised, calm, undisturbed.

Well, there's a lot that's better than a Facebook follower fight, but autumn is certainly better. I like the imagery in your poem, the mixing of nature with feelings.
