Five sentence fiction: Changes

Lillie McFerrin Writes

A unique person 🙂

I’ve met countless people in my life, never had the pleasure of meeting someone like Alice, one moment she’d laugh like a lunatic, you turn around and find her crying, I never quite know what to think of her.

One day she showed interest in Mike, poor Mike is simple there is nothing complicated in his life, he prefers to have things as they are, I knew Mike  since he was a toddler, I didn’t think Alice was his type, when she asked me about him I just said, “Mike is just Mike there are no frills in his thought or action.”

Alice insisted I introduce them,I tried to get out of it but she was relentless, reluctantly I introduced them, they liked each other, they were out for coffee, movies , I saw them everywhere, I wondered how was this possible, Alice was with Mike for the seventh day, I was happy one of them liked to alter, s/h life.

It was Monday morning I noticed Mike was alone, I was curious I asked him about Alice, Mike’s face was red he murmured something then he looked at me ready to pounce, “It’s your fault” he said, you shouldn’t have introduced me to that eccentric.”

I gave him a look of dismay, he ignored my look and said, “Did you know she is crazy?’

Writing Prompt: Charitable

You’ve inherited $5 million, With instructions you must give it away— but you can choose any organizations you like to be the beneficiaries. Where does the money go?

My inherited five million dollars must be given away to any organization I like, makes me wonder why me of all people is entrusted to do this. This is a great way of keeping the person honest, if that little clause was not put in the will I’d probably  not think of charity. I know of an incidence where the dying brother wanted something like this done with the insurance money,it was only something he told her, there was no legal document,so the sister ignored his wish and kept it for herself.

This instruction clearly avoids something like I have written above. Now I must carry on with which organization I’d like to donate the money to. 

There are countless organizations all over the world, I have no idea how they operate and is it safe to give all that money to them. How can I be certain they will give the money to communities that need the most.

This is what I plan to do, since charity begins at home I will donate the money to organizations in my community. I will be able to know what they are doing with the money,whether the have-not’s in my community are getting the benefit or is it used by the bosses of the organizations.

Do din ki zindagi mein dukhre hain beshumar “In this short life there are many unhappy people translation and post by Ranu

Enjoy Life Foods

Enjoy Life Foods (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

There are countless unhappy people in this life,

Despite it,life belongs to those who can enjoy it.

The stars will appear once again

and the moon will shine.

The deserted garden will come alive

with the arrival of spring.

Sunshine and shadow are the

facts of life.

The ones who can endure it,

life belongs to them.

Your loss today will be followed

by gain tomorrow.

Each breath tells you repeatedly

life belongs to those who enjoy it.

There are many excuses

to want to die,

but there is only one to live.

In the strings of hope

the heart plays the tune

this life is for those who enjoy it!

Light in the night (Castelldefels)

Light in the night (Castelldefels) (Photo credit: jcarlosn)

On the dark shore of the river Indus,the solitary girl

floated the boat of light and looked up in the sky.

She knows her Mother has gone to heaven__

she will row the boat of light and come towards the house.

The world has countless people,innumerable are their route,

so many strange lands and unknown hills__

in the middle, there in the small corner of a house

is it visible there lives a brother and a sister?

Their mother moves around looking for them in the dark,

roams around between the stars,loses her way in the vacant sky?

the daughter left one light__

mother would recognize that one light from far away.

She will visit them in their sleep  to give a kiss

to the two orphans lying in bed at night.
