Daily Prompt/ One Word Prompt


The word for today is; disappear


The bird with knowledge


A large bird with built in overdrive wings

Swung down beside me and began to sing

I tried to wave my hands for him to fly away

But he wouldn’t disappear; he was bound to stay

He cleaned his feathers; I made pictures in the sand

There wasn’t a sound anywhere in our land

I got tired and looked out over the sea

He read my mind, said,” Hop on top of me!”

I did as he said and we went up high

We flew through clouds all through the skies

I saw where I grew up as a child

Back in the days when I was wild

Then I saw these golden doors

I wanted to go in and see some more

Mr. Bird said,”No, we’ll be going back to shore

It’s not your turn to visit the golden gates

You need to find yourself, until then, you’ll have to wait.”

Story A Day


The Prompt

Your character wakes up in a space they don’t recognize.

Sarah opened her eyes. Although she was surrounded by water; she could see very clear. She looked to her left, out of her driver side window. Three fish were looking at her. They were beautiful tropical fish.images

Their cute pouting lips, flowing to and fro; seemed like they were smiling at her. She smiled back. Tiny bubbles floating to the top and delicate fins  saying hello; she waved back and then saw her brilliant, red fins.

She looked closer at herself and  felt she was the most beautiful fish she had ever seen.4491d90ebcad11e3e53847942efdaa4c

She moved her lips and they understood. They cleared the debris and moving their fins in a rapid motion; the door lifted away and Sarah gently swam to freedom. Freedom from cruel remarks, freedom from beatings and bullying.

Sarah didn’t remember any of her past. All she knew was she was beautiful and very happy.
