Six Sentence Stories

Todays word is book. Write a story in six sentences then add your link here

The pages were white and felt dry and crinkly.
They didn’t know if they would ever see the light of day again; they had been put back on the shelf a few days ago.
They were good pages and had been there for many people, whenever they wanted them.
So, the book decided to send out reading vibes to whoever walked by it, hoping to be picked up once again. Day in and day out, vibes were sent.
Now the pages are under a lamp, left to be read, happily free again.

Word of the Day: The Daily Spur



Today’s word is teenager. Get the definition from or from the urban dictionary

When I was a teenager
nothing made sense
doing my homework
test day was tense
Then there were sports
and music and friends
If you were a teen once
you know how this ends.

Twiglet #268

in a coat pocket

A twiglet’s aim is to “prompt” a thought. If something comes to mind, write. A polished piece isn’t the goal; creativity is. Leave a link, if you’d like your work read, but comments should not be expected.

Ball of Lint

Once upon a time
there was a ball of lint
he thought himself complete
stuck to an old spearmint
he spent his whole long day
in a coat pocket make of silk
Picking up new fragments
like cold cereal soaked in milk.
He thought that on day he’d
go rolling in the sun
But darkness in the pocket
Was his only kind of fun.

Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!

To one of my favorite writers and great inspirer. I wish I could have met you!

The Cat in the Hat and the Lorax too
sat with the guy who invented it all
today was his day and when he arrived
everyone laughed and they had a great ball.
They ate cake and ice cream, Heavenly Hash,
popcorn, salty chips and soda galore
Seuss was encouraged by the attention
Happy to know they didn’t think him a bore.
Singing loud and with all the effect
this whole party was getting real fun
when it was over and day turned to night
they all realized the party was done.

May Fan-Fiction live on!

The Elephants And Butterflies

How do we know if what we see if real or just a figment of our imagination?


114 words

‘Aw, man,’ Ardmore told Beechwood.

‘I knew I should never have watched that old science fiction movie right after listening to all me old ’60’s albums. That dream I had last night was the bomb.’

‘O.K.,’ Beechwood said. ‘Let’s hear it.’

Ardmore went on to explain.

‘I was in a harsh Oriental jungle, surrounded by killer butterflies and elephants.’

‘Just when I thought I had found a welcome respite from it all, they ate some (ahem, shall we say?) tainted marshmallows and transformed into a hybrid creature, more virulent, more destructive than anyone could even so much as begin to imagine.’

‘Wow!’ Beechwood said obligingly. ‘I told you not to go too crazy, man.’

Simply 6 Minutes – Look at me

A beautiful poem to show the strength we have within



I am beautiful.

On the surface, so tough.

On the inside, soft as velvet.

See my soul fly, with the wings of a butterfly.

See them flutter.

See them float.

See the display of colour.

In my heart

I am fleet

I can float

I can touch, soft and tender, on fragile petals.

In the world

I am hard

Tough as leather

Thick as tree trunks.

What I touch breaks

My steps destroy

My feeding needs, rapacious

Yet, I nurture my young

Wish for their future

for a lightness, love, safety

The freedom to fly,

bright as a butterfly. (99 words, 6 minutes)

Immersive Art

Being patient and understanding can be confusing but if they don’t notice your wrinkles anymore…

A Unique Title For Me

I got paid in peanuts to become this innovative and exploratory in nature form of art, but I happen to like peanuts.  The artist has this thing for butterflies, and he said that it will probably wash off in a week, so I said what the hell and went along with it.  I am getting kind of old now and my skin is all wrinkled, but with these colorful ears, nobody is looking at my wrinkles anymore.  I am thinking that if I flap my ears fast enough that I might be able to fly.  My body is relatively aerodynamic for that of a land animal, but if I did start flying around, they would probably put me in a circus.  I weigh a heck of a lot more than any bird, and although my body has adapted to my weight, my ears would have to be a whole lot…

Gypsie’s Wonderful World of Words

131 Words By Ami (Gypsie) Offenbacher-Ferris

In response to the 6 minute challenge picture prompt provided by STINE WRITING and Miniatures

The procedure to correct and reduce Dumbos massive ears to prevent him from warning circuses around the world about the terrible duo, has gone awry. Dr. Putinup and his trusted assistant Trumpit, strove to put down all resistance supporting the little elephants right to flight and freedom by garnering the likes of Turn-the-other-way-ary and the ever shadowy figure of the increasingly unpopular Polanites.

Upon removal of the little elephants bandages, surgeons and politicians all were shocked and stunned to find their efforts were in fact, in vain when these magnificent butterfly ears emerged and the proud little elephant asserted his independence by flapping his new wings and hopping right over the indignant and horrified faces of both Putinup and Trumpit and their staunch contingent of disbelieving miscreants.

Simply 6 Minutes ~ March 1st

With the use of photoshop or natural causes? Great contribution


Am I dreamin’
Before me stands a lovely imaginary vision
An elephant wearin’ monarch butterfly ears
No, tis some artist’s vivid picturesque creation
A mammal and an insect sharers same ecosystem
Single similarity betwixt them both members of
animal kingdom
If local zoo raised its’ admission price, friend
would you pay extra for the chance opportunity
to snap a picture
of a two-to-seven-ton elephant parading around
with monarch butterfly ears, wingspan three to
four inches.
I guess my answer would be affirmative only I
have a gut feeling this is another photoshop picture.

The black-market lab was at it again. They had been completing genetic experiments for ten years. Most of their “creations” were huge failures. Often the creatures died shortly after birth.

The gestation for the latest project was the longest they had ever dealt with. After 22 months of anxious waiting, the calf was born. It seemed perfectly normal at birth. There were a few anomalies after a few months though. The ears curled up and crusted over. The calf was then rejected by its mother and needed to be bottle fed. It was decided to not intervene with whatever might occur to the strange ears. The elephant hid on the compound for months. When it reappeared, it had the most glorious ears ever seen.
