haiku (for Mom and Dad)


I see that Mom and

Dad had some visitors in

the driveway last night.


Photo by: Osquer

We know what left the tracks because they were seen. Who can tell me what they were?

OneWord - so little time [coddle]

I had coddled the vegetables all summer, so I couldn’t think of a reason not to do so now. I half filled the pot with water and turned the heat on fairly low beneath it. I dropped in the brussel sprouts and cooked them just below the boil until they were tender. They were very tasty, but honestly no better than when cooked at the boil.

* * * * * * *
Thanks for another word with multiple meanings, Mom! Did you know coddle was a cooking term? Dictionary.com says: cod·dle –verb (used with object)

1. to treat tenderly; nurse or tend indulgently; pamper: to coddle children when they're sick.

2. to cook (eggs, fruit, etc.) in water that is just below the boiling point; cook gently.

OneWord - so little time [Chickapea]

“Well, my little Chickapea…” he sneered, twirling his moustache.

“First of all, it’s ‘my little Chickadee’, and second your moustache is still crooked. If you’re going to be a walking cliché, at least get it right.”

“Courses! Spoiled again!”

I shook my head.

"I just don't understand your cavalier attitude," I signed, exhasperated.

"I guess I'm just a romantic," he smiled sweeping off his plumed hat and sticking his sword in the ground by his booted foot.

"Yeah, but it doesn't exactly go with my costume," I grumbled tucking a gummy worm back into a fake wound. "I always think of Halloween as scary." I shrugged a hunched shoulder and went off to the masquerade party with the lone muskateer anyway.

OneWord - so little time [ignorant]

I had always done my best to remain ignorant of the personal lives of my co-workers. Working in intelligence, it was just too easy to delve into their hidden worlds and I was frankly afraid of what instabilities I might find. If I was going to rely on these people for my life, I was better off not knowing their skeletons by name. I also found the ostrich approach made it much easier to not care when one of the disappeared.

I had some difficulty climbing up the honeycombed wall of the chamber, but the stickiness of the surface and the multitude of corners in the hexagonal sections of the structure aided me in my ascent. I still wasn't sure if I'd been shrunk somehow or if I was dealing with some kind of giant mutant bees, but my first goal was to make it out of the hive alive.

55 Fiction Friday


Lady Eleanor’s eyelids struggled open, giving the impression, as she intended, that the Duke’s presence had revived her. She blinked up at him as if confused. She was nothing of the kind. She was merely using the incident to tighten her hold on His Grace’s attention. She had gained too much to be undone now.

OneWord - so little time [still]

I lay quite still in the tall grass and held my breath lest a bit of pollen make me sneeze. I had just managed to dismantle the still in time. The sheriff and his men were nearly to the clearing where I was crouching. Suddenly a car engine roared nearby. My brother had made it to the car. He would draw them off, giving me time to gather up the hooch and take it off in the truck.

OneWord - so little time [rainbow]

She stood in the shallows, very stiil, her hand stretched out toward the waterfall. As I walked up behind her I could see that she was touching the edges of the mist frothed up by the waterfall with the tips of her fingers, tracing the edge of the rainbow that the sunlight painted there.
