Haiku Flash Fiction- The Guard

#1 On Guard
Walk perimeter.
All secure. Sensed it would be.
Now for alone time.

#2 Unpacking
Some needed down time
Walking through my secure walls
Making sense of it

#3 Off Guard
Alone, insecure.
What time is it? Senses twitch.
Creep downstairs to check…

Haiku Challenge #53 – "Guide" & "Mad"

This is the latest weekly challenge from Ronovan, with the prompts “guide” and “mad”. I had a lot of fun with these words. Hope you do too!

#1
The madness of crowds
Guides the fool to dusty death,
Forsaking wisdom

#2
Bureaucrat’s madness:
Thousand page guidance info.
Welcome to my work

#3
Set aside youth’s doubt;
The madness of difference.
Let love be your guide

#4
A moment’s stillness:
Guide the soul to harmony.
Set madness aside

#5
Here’s Tour Guide Barbie,
Mad hair, camo gear and gun…
Brother’s makeover

99-word story – The Woman on the Train

Staring absent-mindedly out of the train window, Jasmine sighs with all of her body. Arms crossed loosely, her fingers tap out an occasional beat upon her smooth arms, before brushing a mousy brown hair away from her face. A wry smile flickers, and is bitten away. She pulls her i-phone from her bag, fingers sliding deftly over the screen, looking up now and again. Another bite. Long exhale. Coming to a decision, she places the phone face down on the table, straightening the sweet disorder of her floral summer dress.

The stranger opposite smiled to himself.

He’d found her.
