Six Sentence Stories – Home under Construction

Home is where the heart is.

This home under construction looks like it’s been deserted, no one is working on it, the ladder hasn’t been used for some time the grass is starting to overgrow it.

You can see someone loved working on the plan for this new home.

Maybe they ran out of money to get the windows in or otherwise there has been a problem getting the glass, maybe it’s an out of the way property and the cost have been too high in other words they have run out of money to finish building it.

So someone had a wonderful plan for building an exciting home which has come to a standstill, so sad.

They have even started planting the section with shrubs, that look like they have been planted some time ago, sad state of affair for such an interesting looking home.

Daily Picture Prompt – 3 – The Windmill – Pantoum Poetry

No water, the pond was going dry
The windmill was a faithful asset
Water was always in abundance
Everyone relied on that windmill for survival

Grass was green and plentiful
Everyone relied on that windmill for survival
Then the windmill stopped turning

The wind stopped blowing
Then the windmill stopped turning
Farmer Jed was a little worried

The windmill was not working
Farmer Jed was a little worried
There was still water in the pond

The windmill was not working

The wind started blowing

Green Grass was not growing
Animals were hungry
The wind started blowing
The windmill still was not turning

Ronovan’s Weekly Haiku Poetry Challenge – 126 – Pet & Play

Last Sunday I spend some family time at the Brooklands Zoo in New Plymouth NZ.

It was my youngest great-grandson 1st birthday, we had a wonderful time, the animals were the highlight of the visit for many but to me, it made a perfect day, as I had not been to the zoo for many years.

This photo was taken with my cell phone of the monkeys, so “Ronovan Haiku Poetry Challenge”, with the prompt “Pet & Play” is a wonderful opportunity to  share a photo of a day I will never forget.

but never pet a monkey

Mother’s Love for her Son 

Sam had been enjoying his day exploring the river, that he hadn’t noticed the night setting in, all of a sudden he saw the night sky in the distance and panic started setting in as he knew his mother would be worrying if he wasn’t home before dark.

Now with trying to hurry he had created a problem, as he was turning around, he had become stuck in the mud and weeds, he hadn’t seen the water level getting lower as the tide when out to sea.

He knew that no way was he going to get the boat unstuck tonight, so he swam to the river bank and climbed out moving as quickly as he could with his wet clothes towards home, trying to stay calm.

As he rounded the corner on the track he came face to face with his mother, he got such a shock that he nearly fainted.

She was angry at first, but after Sam had told her what had happened, she was so happy that Sam had made a good decision in a difficult situation, she said that they would get up at first light in the morning and she would help him get the problem sorted out.

That’s true love, after all, nobody had been hurt, if Sam had stay with the boat who knows what could have happened.
