Friday Fictioneer: Tune

This challenge is hosted by Rochelle. You can view the other entries here.

Tune

By the old, curtains of the abandoned mansion, the two boy cousins could see the flaming rays of the dying sun kissing the summer mist.

The older boy, smarter and colder of the two, and a former bully, whispered coldly, “Still enemies but, gon’ work together, ‘kay?”

The younger one, timid and bullied, didn’t reply.

 Instead, a soft piano tune played.

“Ain’t …” the older trailed off as his eyes went to the clock. Running backward.

Again the tune. Soft and haunting.

This time, the older gasped at the other, horrified. Whenever the younger talked only a soft tune played.

It’s Been A Year!

And so, finally it’s been a year!

Summer greetings to all of my beloved friends in WordPress. Today is really a great day for me because my little Den of Dreams is one year old now!

I really want to thank all those 607 people who have joined me in my journey and stayed with me through thick and thin, and 5619 visitors who came to see my place.

Thank you so much!

Thanks! Copyrights: Dragon Warrior

I guess, it’s not possible for me to thank every person I know here, much as I would like to, so I guess, I will just whisper the name for a few people who made my journey in WordPress unforgettable.

Crispina Kemp, Renee, Yeka Elyan White, Steve and Muffin, Tatterhood, Sheree, Ceridwensilverhart, James, Tiger and there’s so many people I could say.

Everyone of you make my day. Thank you so much for being there with me ❤

Warmest regards and may you have a great day,

The Thing

 “Whassup today?” I asked to the Boy Who Lived in the Shack.

“Test drive,” he said, putting forward a “Thing” looking like a hot air balloon.

Together, we carried it to the open where he adjust the engines and together we seated in the large box.

“Now think, boy.” He said.

“Think what, boy?” I asked.

 “Whatever,” he said and so I did. And the more I thought, the higher the Thing flew. Higher, higher, into the air. Past the clouds.

“Hey, when will it stop?” I asked, frantically.

My mind went crazy with worries but even higher we went.

Only A Week To Go…

What Pegman Saw: When You’re Gone

Much thanks to J Hardy for hosting this amazing challenge of What Pegman’s Saw. This week, we’re off to Chechnya Russia.

When You’re Gone

An icy spell hovered by the clouds,

With nothing but snow all around,

Hamza dragged his boots into the snow,

He didn’t know what to do, or where to go,

He wore nothing to make him warm,

Only dark thoughts swam

Round his mind, only darkness lingered.

His heart felt more frozen than his limbs,

His mind felt more numb than his fingers.

He looked into the skies,

Drew back, a sigh,

And whispered into the air,

The words no-one could hear,

“When you’re gone, my world feels more bleak

Than all the winters at peek,

My heart has dried like all these leafless trees,

And I won’t mourn if one day I shall freeze

For when you’re gone, 

I’m all alone,

No beauty is appealing,

No cure is healing,

No bird seems to sing,

For my darling, you, and only you, is my spring.” 

Crimson’s Creative Challenge: The Forgotten Cottage

Thank you so much Crispina, for hosting this challenge.

The Forgotten Cottage

‘Twas a forgotten little cottage,

 In forgotten little forest.

A young plump guy, who didn’t know why

He was alone,

Stared at the house overgrown

With weeds.

He’d come following those strange reeds

That grew by the riverside,

Strange things he saw, animal hides,

Colourful pebbles, patterns on the ground,

And soon he was lost, for he didn’t know the way round

The forgotten little forest.

He stared at the forgotten little cottage

With fear-laden eyes.

He looked to the ground, he looked at the skies,

He called his friends loud, he chanted prayers,

But there was no-one, nobody to help him there.

But there was someone in the house who’d heard the boy cry,

And there from the house, out came the most peculiar guy,

“Come he said my dear,” said the man who was not touched by age,

And there went the young guy, right in the cage.

Well, here’s something about the “young boy”. There he is, do you like the way he looks? So, this time, I’m trying to write a story with characters from different parts of Earth and he’s one of them. Thanks so much for reading, have a great day (:

Grey

A little poem about the colour grey.

Grey

On a grey day, by a grey path,

Under grey skies, lay a graveyard

With grey stones, and wilted flowers,

And grey moans and grey showers—

A grey mouse, with no house,

Groped about the graveyard,

‘My future home’ he muttered lone,

And went away in the grey path.
