This week's writing challenge from
Five Sentence Fiction
( Lillie McFerrin Writes ) is based upon the prompt:
What it’s all about: Five Sentence Fiction is about packing a powerful punch in a tiny fist. Each week Lillie posts one word for inspiration, then anyone wishing to participate will write a five sentence story based on the prompt word.
A poem, for a change...
A Link To The Outside
The fog drifts in from the water and crawls along the shore,
Passing through the fence unhindered,
A wispy spirit whose chill presence
Makes my tired body shiver.
But I shouldn't complain;
It gives cover from spying eyes,
The eyes of those who would deny my needs,
From those who would punish me.
A seagull taunts from the ashen sky,
Mockingly demonstrating how easily he soars
Between my world and his.
But I ignore the supercilious bird
For time is short and there is work to do,
Work that must be done today,
Only a few more links,
Just a few more snips,
And, if the guard should look away,
I will be free.
