{Denise gracefully hosts Six Sentence Stories, where writers unleash their magic under one simple rule: in no more or no less than 6 sentences.
This week’s prompt word is : BAND }



Suspended mid-air…flip of a cosmic coin…few centimeters to the left or a second later…exploding fractures, thresholds awaiting

Hold me…neither angels nor demons will have me…crash and burn

Scar running down like the yearning of a river

A hair band by the sink, a tear on the brink, a smile hidden deep in a drop of ink

Time…irrelevant…oh, the tear & the smile we will share when the battle is over

“Music is the fabric that clothes our lives”from somewhere in GirlieOnTheEdge, said the sigh of the ocean wave…always has, always will.

And dedicated to those brave souls…


About Spira

” The eternal part of our being is conscious of the timeless essence of life & is aware that the past is nothing but a memento of the present and tomorrow a dream of the now. The very thing meditating & singing from within, remains always inside the boundaries of the primordial instant that scattered the stars into the cosmos.” Kh.Gibran

  1. That’s a powerful hymn to healing, dear Nick. Your words soothe.
    Nicely teamed up with the spiritual poem and music video too! Thank goodness for music, ay?

    Just wow to this line:
    “A hair band by the sink, a tear on the brink, a smile hidden deep in a drop of ink”
    Just wow.

  2. Dude!*
    What they said**

    *under-articulated compliment on imagery and affect
    ** wistfully seeking confirmation (or is that conformation) from the other Sixarians on critiquing with more sophistication than the Crayola 8 Pack in front of this here computer.
