Sue Vincent’s #Thursday photo prompt: #writephoto, parting of the ways


Somehow we both knew

that this was where we should part,

go separate ways,

going round the obstacles

in the stony stream of life

100 Word Wednesday: Week 90


“He’s doing it again. I don’t believe how he can just stroll around with his little tail swishing from side to side like a fly whisk.

Not a care in the world. His heavy feet trudging through the leaves and debris.

Suddenly, without warning he stops and then lets out squeals of delight as he digs his nose furiously into the ground.  Then he starts scraping furiously.

He’s oblivious to everything. You could punch him, do anything and he would never notice. Just carries on digging into the soft earth.

Oh if only I could find truffles like that pig.”

Sunday Photo Fiction – Sept 16 2018

923B10B2-85A0-4971-8563-C9010A6C42EF“Navigator’s yeoman to the bridge at the double,” the pipe was loud and clear and I could see the panic on Able Seaman Ralph’s face as as he raced across the mess to the forward ladder.

“Looks like old Ralph is in for a hard time,” I thought.

I decided to follow as it could be something everyone could have a laugh about later so started to make my way up to the bridge.

The navigator was pointing the finger at the chart on the table at the back of the bridge and saying to Ralph, “Now are you sure you haven’t missed an alteration to the chart, do you how serious that could be? ”

”No Sir, I heard the siren but thought nothing of it.”

”Well have a bloody look up ahead, is that or is it not a starboard buoy when all the rest are port?”

”Navvie, you’d better have a look at this,” the Officer of the Watch, laughing, interjected.

”What is it now, “ irritation in the Navigator’s voice apparent.

”Well, that so-called buoy is just a couple of idiot holidaymakers with a bright green umbrella , we’ll radio the harbourmaster to go and pick them up.

“Flash Fiction 99 word Challenge for the Carrot Ranch Literary Community



“Wow, look at that Dad,” The dad in question was trying hard not to show his own excitement.

They were standing high on the cliffs watching waves crashing into the beach below. Not only waves but numerous figures standing on multi-coloured surfboards rushing in with each breaker.

“Dad, “ his son pleaded, “can we get a surfboard?”

“Sorry Davey but you know that they are expensive and how often could you use it?”

“Awww,” the disappointment showed.

The afternoon was spoilt.

Next morning Davey went out before breakfast. Worried, his father went to find him. Then he saw the fence.
