#1 On Guard
All secure. Sensed it would be.
Now for alone time.
Some needed down time
Walking through my secure walls
Making sense of it
#3 Off Guard
What time is it? Senses twitch.
Creep downstairs to check…

Written for secret keeper’s weekly prompt – SENSE | SECURE | WALK | TIME | ALONE
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!
The madness of crowds
Guides the fool to dusty death,
Thousand page guidance info.
Welcome to my work
Set aside youth’s doubt;
The madness of difference.
Let love be your guide
A moment’s stillness:
Guide the soul to harmony.
Set madness aside
Here’s Tour Guide Barbie,
Mad hair, camo gear and gun…

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.
