Simply Sunday – Simply Memes…

I have been away again for too long… The days seemed to drift like
sand through fingers and now I hopefully have grasped time! 🙂

For Succintly Yours( image here and word is speculate), One Single Impression(Sour Grapes), Sunday Scribblings(Lesson):
“A lesson learned – do not speculate too long else what you
get is sour grapes”, he thought as he cleared up the desk, previously his.

For Sunday Whirl:

There he sat amidst the ruins, looking like a hellion
A lot petulant, feeling the first flutters of rebellion
His ears perked, the faint staccato of heels coming near
Her? How did she know to find him here?
She reached him, nearer, yet still too far              
She knelt down, gently touched the scar,
He looked at her then, a little dubious,
Her hair was dancing all around her in billows,
One tiny curl darted out to caress his cheek
His heart, which he had exiled to some dark corner
Opened the latch of the heavy, almost metallic, doors around,
all because of her
His soul leaped with joy, his lips curled up in a smile
It was as if multiple fuses had been lit, fireworks all
around while
For them – the ruins ceased to exist, it was only him, only
her, only them.
For Magpie tales and Sunday Whirl and One Single Impression:
In the glorious ruins all around
Are leaves swirling in billows above the ground
The dubious earth fuses with the petulant wind
Seeming to ask, “Why this rebellion? Why this need to be a
You are bound to scar me. Please have a care, don’t be so
Suddenly, everything quiets, the wind, the earth, all utterly
A latch opening somewhere with staccato sounds, 
Metallic hands dart out suddenly, as if having been in exile
Holding a shining red gem, a treasure
And a voice said,”These were sour grapes before”!

  1. Nice meme page, L.I.R. ~~ Your Succintly Yours has been a sign of our times. I almost used that them too, but did differently. ~~ Your OSI, Sour Grapes in combo was a natural for brooding after a lay-off. I did C&W on mine.
    Come see (two different blog sites, one for each),

  2. (This comment points itself in the direction of your Succinctly Yours story–>) YIKES! So many people having to go without their jobs these days. It's a crime that makes our stomachs growl! I guess there's nothing to do but look to the bright side: If worse comes worst, the guy whose income has been snuffed, can eat those sour grapes<–a possibly refreshing change from Ramen noodles?!

  3. A sad tale, to be sure. And a fine lesson, too—never mind speculation, just work hard and do such a great job the boss would never consider issuing a pink slip. Although to be fair, in this economy, I've known a number of diligent, hardworking people who fell victim to downsizing. Timely microfiction.

  4. The days have drifted away for me as well. Sorry that I haven't stopped by sooner. I really enjoyed your microfiction. Fine words of wisdom in story format. Nicely done.
