Enable (an acrostic poem)

Everyone deserves a second chance

Now Becky was trying to prove it to her daughter

As they watched the Twitter feed for conformation

But as the minutes flowed by, Becky knew that it wasn’t going to happen

Looking at her daughter’s expectant face, she decided on a course of action

Eva, your dad just said we should go get ice cream.  The three year old cheered

Daughter (an acrostic poem)

Dad lost his heart that first time he held you
As you cried insistently in his arms
Under the hospital’s bright lights
Growing up he watches you and marvels
Here was the baby that needed everything
There is the young woman who claims to know everything
Entering her time to solo on the world’s stage
Remembering the first time he held you

100 Word Story #6 Pillow Fight

“To the max, and beyond!”  I know that’s not right, but the five year old I swing my pillow at doesn’t seem to notice.  She attacks me with a two handed over the head pillow chop, threatening me to split me in two.  And by splitting me in two I mean from deep revitalizing belly laughter.  I collapse to the ground, taking her down with me, both of us gasping for air between the laughs and tears.  This is just what we needed since her mother wasn’t coming home again.  At least this was one battle we both could win.
