    The rocker sat, unmoving. A lazy cat dozed beneath, oblivious to the danger presented to its tail, should the rocker suddenly become occupied.

  • JP West commented on the post, loom 6 years ago

    An ominous cloud looms in the distant, silently promising a tempest for the coming night. Hours later the terrifying boom of thunder wakes me from a fitful sleep.

  • JP West commented on the post, soap 6 years ago

    The bar of soap, snuggled into a wet wash rag for hours, was no longer a translucent pink, but a thick, slimy pink; having melted within the moisture, the pomegranate scent permeated the hot, humid air in the bathroom.

  • JP West commented on the post, simplify 6 years ago

    Simplify, easier said than done. The complications of everyday life are what makes our life so rich and full. Sure we complain, there’s too much to do and not enough time to do it. But to simplify, to do less and complain less, would cause us to miss out on too much. To simplify or not to simplify?

  • JP West commented on the post, burning 6 years ago

    There was a burning sensation, at first merely aggravating, it was almost an itch. It gradually became a fiery pain, the longer it went, the hotter it burned.

  • JP West commented on the post, credibility 6 years ago

    Your credibility is flagging. Never give them any reason to question your morals or ethics. Having done so, you lose credibility. Keep your basic beliefs first in your list of priorities and you will retain credibility.

  • JP West commented on the post, dissolve 6 years ago

    Why does the snail dissolve in salt? Why, when I see the word dissolve, does my mind automatically take me here, where I don’t want to be?

  • JP West commented on the post, enemies 6 years ago

    They used to be enemies, but now they are the best of friends. It all started when she was having the worst day of her life and the last person she wanted to see in that particular moment was her enemy; but her enemy helped her, changing everything.

  • JP West commented on the post, enemies 6 years ago

    They weren’t enemies, not really. Sure they had been through a lot, hated each other more often then not, but she wouldn’t say Liza was her nemesis. Just on the other end of the spectrum….

  • JP West commented on the post, crow 6 years ago

    Holy crow! What is that? WHAT is that?! Oh, that? That’s nothing. Bull, that’s not nothing! Sure it is, nothing at all. That’s a pretty big nothing.

  • JP West commented on the post, clasp 6 years ago

    She clasped the hand to her left; it was a small hand, tiny really. It was too dark in here to tell, but it seemed like it was a child’s hand. There were more people in the room, she could here them, some crying, some whispering prayers.

  • JP West commented on the post, electrocute 6 years ago

    She dropped the radio into the tub! How stupid could she be! Thank God the act of it falling off the counter and into the tub unplugged it before it electrocuted her.

    In the bowling alley there lay twelve lanes. At the end of each lane stood ten pins.
