  • Craggy Secrets

    PHOTO PROMPT © Sandra Crook I knew I would be at the top of the cliff before the day was done. There was no way I could continue to stare at the craggy edges and not know what the view was from the top. Maybe a new perspective of my little beach town would come.…

  • Gut Reactions

    Santa Fe Humane Society Dog Park (03/24/2022)  Photo credit: Kate Cornwell As my dog approached the man on the side of the gravel road, I felt the hairs on the back of my neck stand up.  There was something about the stoop of his shoulders and the faded black of his shirt that shook me. …

  • Stoned

    PHOTO PROMPT © Starsinclayjars  I knew who the boot belonged to as soon as I saw it. It was Jeff’s and he was once again off his medicine. If he was still taking his antibiotics, he wouldn’t have the fever I knew he had to have. If he was still on his other medications, he couldn’t…

  • The Porch Dance

    PHOTO PROMPT © Dale Rogerson  As I watched the shadows on the porch dance, I knew this would be the last normal day I had. Household items had been slowly disappearing for weeks and as hard as I tried, I couldn’t figure out to where. I had known we wouldn’t stay long, but I was…

  • Playground Party

    PHOTO PROMPT © Roger Bultot  The rain had almost ruined the party, but now I knew it was going to go exactly how I envisioned. Chase hated the rain and getting wet so I knew he wouldn’t leave his house if there was a chance of either happening. I think he was sure he was…

  • Unrelenting

    PHOTO PROMPT © David Stewart  The rain was unrelenting and it was beginning to put me on edge. I had come to the beach for a sunny vacation and here I was, stuck in endless rain. I actually enjoyed rain for the most part, but this was out of control. If I had wanted rain,…

  • The Darkness

    PHOTO PROMPT © Rochelle Wisoff-Fields  As soon as the lights went out I knew it was not an accident. And even though I had been preparing for this very moment, I wasn’t prepared at all. I was half hoping my suspicions about Oliver were wrong and nothing would happen. That my Sunday would proceed as…

  • On the Run

    PHOTO PROMPT © Alicia Jamtaas  The only time I have ever felt free in my life was when I could fit my belongings into my garage.  It was not until then that I felt like I could do whatever I wanted, whenever I wanted.  If I wanted to go on a vacation, my bags were…
