Lost Time

I have been very neglectful lately, so I am going to get caught up on a few things tonight. One of those things is Michael’s prompts. These are the one’s I have missed: “once upon a never”, “twice shy”, “turbulence”, “tears of night”, and “Wednesday.” Hmm…let’s see what I can accomplish in just 100 words 🙂

The turbulence was awful. Even the attendants were nervous. Jenny held tight to her Daddy and squeezed his hand with her eyes closed.

“Jenny,” he said quietly. “Open your eyes.”

She was back in her bed, warm and safe. Her dad smiled and opened a story book. “Once upon a never, a little girl danced while Once Bitten, Twice Shy played on the radio. Her mother was in the kitchen making their favorite Wednesday meal…”

Tears of Night played quietly while the priest read the names of those lost on Flight 27. Amy cried for her lost husband and daughter.


50 Word Thursdays – A New Beginning #2

When Deb Whittam retired from hosting 50-Word Thursdays, Kristian asked to pick it up and offered me a spot at co-host. Obviously, I jumped at the opportunity as I love this weekly prompt. Last week he hosted, so this week, I am hosting. My prompt will go out at Midnight GMT on Thursday, and a recap will be posted at 10:00 PM GMT next Wednesday.


  1. Find the muse within the photo or line provided and follow where it leads. It can be a story, anecdote, poem. Anything!
  2. Story must be between 50 and 250 words, in 50 word increments.
  3. Link back to this post with the tag 50WordThurs so that everyone can find it, or post your response in the comments below.
  4. HAVE FUN!

I spin in a haze of greens, blues, and white, my perceptions unraveling like a roll of gauze.
