Bixxy Bunny

Bixxy was a bunny 

Who loved to make her clothes 

She had a special button 

Its shaped just like her nose 

She uses all her fabric 

To make her dress just fine 

If she were a real designer 

I’d definitely make her mine.

What do you see # 32- 1st June 2020

Written for Sadje:


Veva sat with the photos in front of her. It had been in Paris that she met Sal. He was a student, studying international affairs and she also a student, studying law. They had bumped into each other in the bookstore of university and it was love at first sight. From that moment on they had been inseparable. It had been in Rome that he proposed. As a couple they had planned a vacation full of sight-seeing and local adventures.  She would always remember that day, Sal on one knee in the center of the Colosseum with a ring in his hand. The crowds had cheered as if Sal had just won a victory. After graduation they had headed into Manhattan to be closer to Sal’s family in Queens and Brooklyn. Veva was able to visit family in Oregon often and there were no problems for this happy couple. 50 years later, Veva sat alone, pictures, the camera, the love, but alone. A tear fell from her cheek and landed on the photo of Paris, as if knowing this was where it all began, and it was worthy of her tears.

City: Daily Word Prompt, June 2

Written for Sue’s challenge on JibberJabber:

between land and sky

Between a concrete land and a breathless universe 
life exists amongst city buildings 
built so tall, as to touch the unending sky 
life  exists amongst all beings 
built by the same creator, so as to live in unity 
life exists amongst inventions 
built by beings to outsmart the world 
Between a concrete land and a breathless universe.
