Light and Shade Challenge – Haiku

29th July 2015 – Lock and Key

Every Wednesday we put up a new Challenge. There is a picture, a quotation and a 500 word limit. The Challenge is to take whatever is sparked by the picture and/or the quotation, however tenuous or remote the connection, and see how much fun you can have in 500 words. We never count the words. The main thing that is important to us (Lyssa Medana and Thomas Marlowe) is the fun.You have until midnight GMT Tuesday. Here is the picture prompt. Please credit if you show it on your blog.

This week’s quote is from Hunter S Thompson:

Written by Teresa Dean Smeigh Copy-Right 2015

The Key of our minds,

It locks up all the bad things,

Hidden from our past.

  1. very good; been wondering about some stuff myself


    • Tessa says:

      Thank you Donna. I got my creativity back. That is a good thing. I missed writing stories and poems.


      • I read your Friday fiction, although today’s only Thursday – do wonder about it irl, though, what they’d do with old granpa shooting up like that – haven’t said anything yet till see what’s going to happen but same son, with the Marshalls – bhh, seems like everything happens – anyway, drives a manual, squealed tires or something taking off from getting gas at the station here while back – later stopped at an abandoned one – or was it the cops were stopped there and he went by – now where was he going that he was there and hadn’t just gone back home or was out again? don’t have it all straight, anyway got pulled over then for the earlier incident at the station? does that make sense? anyway, got a reckless driving ticket for it


  2. Time to open it up :I


  3. seems like a time traveling type story – she’s gone back to her childhood, right?


    • Tessa says:

      Yeah, but I confused myself and gave up. I was writing from weekly prompts which is hard enough without making a serial story from it.


      • and also wasn’t that somewhat when you were in the middle of what you were going through – and, too, is all these story prompt blogs part of what you’re talking about just getting into so many, that you’re trying to cut back some or is that just the other stuff?


        • Tessa says:

          No it was a long time ago and before this other stuff. It just got out of hand and I went back to writing singles. I am cutting my blog reading down and doing more writing. I enjoy it.
