The Cat in the Hat sat back in his chair
He motioned the children, “Come on over here”.
They looked at the screen and were totally awed
At the mirror that smoked, it had to be flawed.
But the Cat took their hands and he tried to explain
“What you see on the screen, well it isn’t all sane”
He continued to show them some other strange sites
like Fandango and Bushboy, and a Stine who just writes.
Then they closed up the tab and went back to the toys
That they knew how to use without unfettered ploys
When their mother came home and the children were fed
She thanked the smart cat and sent the kids straight to bed.

Fandango and Bushboy, I hope you don’t mind me using your names in my work. They just popped into my head and fit nicely!

Leaving Town: Today’s prompt compilation

I was feeling particularly cynical
when it came to
my life
Elegant cars, grand parades
But a melodramatic wife
We lived on the edge
of a town that we knew
the businesses useless
and irrelevant too.
We seemed quite unfit
in the roister found here
As wifey was reticent
As was I, to be clear
Like a carbuncle found
on the butt of a lad
The accessories here
were like some awful fad
We didn’t fit in
like a gold mirror tray
on a gold silk blanket
with tulle
all astray.
So we loaded the car
for a much needed change
we drove out of that town
it was all really strange.

Well, that was a doozy! Here is where I got all my words:

Black-Bellied Whistling Duck

These cuties were on my shed yesterday. I took a few pictures through the window just in case they flew off but I was able to sneak the door open for a couple pictures before I scared them away. They were in the tree next door and on the neighbor’s roof!

Shall we Dance?

pensitivity101

Tim was pruning his aunt’s roses when he felt a gentle tap on his shoulder.
Turning round, he was greeted by the brightest smile from the most beautiful woman he had ever seen.
Roses forgotten, music drifted on the air and without a word, he took her in his arms.
They danced across the lawns in perfect rhythm and harmony, grace personified, two bodies moving as one.
He wanted the moment to last forever, and as the tempo changed, their movements flowed together like liquid gold.
Breathing in her fresh scent, he lost track of time. In fact, he lost track of everything apart from this wonderful woman who matched him step for step and made him feel like Fred Astaire.

*****For any participants that do NOT like restrictions, please feel free to participate in any way you would like. It is great to read the contributions!****

  1. Set up a timer or sit near a clock so you can keep track of the six minutes you will be writing.
  2. You can either use one of the prompts (photo or written) or you can free-write.
  3. Get ready and write for 6 minutes, that is it! Can you write a complete story? Can you think of a new Sonnet? Can you write 400 words? 400? 500? There are no restrictions on what kind of writing you do, but you should try to be actively writing for six minutes.
  4. After you are done writing, include your word count and then post back to this page #Simply6Minutes or include your link in the comments section. Pingbacks are enabled.
  5. *Feel free to leave your work completely unedited. I believe it is good to see, especially for new writers, that even very seasoned writers don’t write a perfect first draft.*
  6. Have fun, challenge yourself if you’d like, read and respond to others’ posts.

Thank you for participating!
