This is the second small stone (I still like the word ‘pebble’ better) I’ve posted up here, but this is the ninth one I’ve done. :) I started in May (because I actually remembered something about writing a little bit every day on the first, and decided to do it) and I’m still doing it now! My friend read through it (not that I let her, but I didn’t not let her either. We were just sorta on my computer looking through my things and I didn’t mind her reading it. She said they were good. So. I’m proud of my writing.)
A badminton game
A swish of the racket
A small flicking motion
A point gained
A shuttlecock sent flying too high
A gleeful smash back
A point lost
A pair working harmoniously
An audience cheering them on
A game won
My friend and I played doubles against another pair from another class and we were pretty sure we’d lose, but hey, we (unexpectedly) won! :) (Congratulations to us)
Also, today’s funny incident: this humorist came over and gave a talk, and he asked if there were any people creating their own stories- e.g. filmmaking, writing, writing music, stopmotion etc.When he got to writing, my best friend and a few of my other friends just turned around and stared at me as if expecting me to raise my hand. (Well, I didn’t have to because everyone else knew.) And so my best friend (who also writes) and I had this long distance quick chat about why she didn’t raise her hand either, and why I didn’t raise my hand. I like my best friend a lot.
It was a nice feeling, being known by my peers as someone who writes. (Though I don’t even know how they knew, because I only shared with about four people. But still.)
I thought it’d be cool to show you the fonts I had on my Word! And it’d also be cool to put up a photo post. Photo haiku. (Yay!) (Also, do you find yourself able to relate to it? I didn’t mean to make it sad, but it’s pretty much how everything I write turns out. :( )
(Is this enough of an apology for not posting for so long HAHAHA I just feel that I’ve let people down. Also I’d like to announce I’m a lot happier now, and my friends (yes I have friends) said that my mood’s a lot better!)
Here’s one of today’s random haikus:
Ice cream by the sea
Creamy, milky vanilla
With a hint of salt
I had to walk to someplace to get tickets to an amusement park and decided to get ice cream from McDonalds (because that ice cream tastes amazing). I didn’t really notice how bad my cough was, but it became significantly worse after I ate it. I shouldn’t have, but the temptation was so great, I couldn’t resist. ; _ ;
Let’s hope my phlegm clears up and my cough gets better. :/
Icy flakes of white
Drift from the infinite sky
Kiss my auburn hair
Random haiku that I had inspiration for last night. By that I mean I was halfway to dreamland when my brain wrote this haiku and I was forced to remember it. I didn’t post for about a week so I’ll put up another short post later! (By that I mean later. Like, right after this post.)
(The last sentence reminds me of ‘kiss my ass’ or something. Hehehehe.)
(Hey, finally, a piece to do with the title of this blog! A snowflake! :D)
Here’s a short poem I worked hard to write out. :) All the rhyming words were hard to think of. :/
“I’m gonna go get ice cream,”
she said, walking off to the shop.
What ice cream?
A cone? A scoop? A fruit pop?
Sundae? Sorbet? Gelato?
Lemon? Raspberry? Pistachio?
Chartreuse? Cornflower? Lavender?
Sprinkles? Syrup? A wafer?
Why was that so abrupt?
Does she think I hate her?
Will she get anything for me?
Well, I’ll probably find out later.
Streaks of magenta,
Clouds tinted coral.
The silver cresent askew,
Floating, soft grey wisps.
A black backdrop,
Sparse, sparkling flecks of glitter,
Onyx shapes swimming by.
Quiet, still, desolate.
Complete absence of sound, life.
Time freezes. Am I all alone?
A dull, mundane grey
turns a soft periwinkle,
with cracks of scarlet flames.
Dawn peeks from under the horizon.
Reassured, I rest, because
Another day is waiting ahead.
I don’t even know what I’m doing anymore. This was supposed to be a story prompt, Lizette! A story prompt! And look what happened! Well, I hope you liked it. :) This is all so new to me. :O
