Here is my story this week.
It’s based on a childhood memory I have of my brother.

Get your butt in the house this minute, young man! I’ve had it with your shenanigans and now you’re going to pay a pretty price for the mess you made.

I’m sorry but I can’t pay a pretty price because I don’t have any money. I am not a man, Mommy. I am just a poor little boy.

My 5 lines this week,

There was a Yankee who left Cleveland
With a quick snappy wave of the hand
Never once looking back
Now from a southern shack
Greets Y’all saying ain’t life simply grand

Here is my 5 line story this week;

People say when you look in the mirror it reflects who you are.  She knows that isn’t true because when she looks in the mirror there is a reflection of a rather short pudgy old woman with bad posture, grey hair, and wrinkles. That may be what others see if they look at her; which most often these days they don’t. The mirror may reflect what others see but it only reflects the outer. Yes, she knows she is old but she sees the truth in the mirror and she is still beautiful.

When we are afraid
It is not the time for war
When sense is mislaid
It is the time to explore
A peaceful path to be made

Here is my poem using the word hasten:

To hasten this day
With worries of tomorrow
Robs today of joy
Time is fleeting and precious
Live here and now with delight
