This is kind of strange to do a post for Trifecta’s weekend challenge: Trifexta without having a 33 word count, but I guess since a Haiku only has three lines, I guess that works too! The last time I did a Haiku was in my senior year of high school. I also remember having my aide explain to me three or four times how to do it, because I’m slow and could not figure it out whatsoever. I have seen a writing challenge just for Haiku, a fellow blogger Maggie Grace does them on her blog and Twitter a lot. I think they’re fun and sweet little stories. I might be a little rusty, but I’m going to attempt this to the best of my ability. If you don’t know what they are,
HAIKU (noun) : an unrhymed verse form of Japanese origin having three lines containing usually five, seven, and five syllables respectively.
“The heat mixed With a cool breeze it Made a storm.”
What it’s all about: Five Sentence Fiction is about packing a powerful punch in a tiny fist. Each week I will post a one word inspiration, then anyone wishing to participate will write a five sentence story based on the prompt word. The word does not have to appear in your five sentences, just use it for direction.
This week: THUNDER
It was a night in the theatre; as the storm began to start.
The director gave his bow as he turned his back to the black symphony, it had begun in the sounds of sweet and sultry flooded the hearts of many.
You could drop a pen on the ground and never hear it over the thunder of strings and percussion overruling the room.
The lightning strikes at the same time as the harp soothes the audience in their seats, the rain hitting the roof up above meets with the cymbals clashing on stage.
The faster the performance goes, the slower the storm outside and as they both start to fade away, all is left is a crowd of people clapping their hands cheering, and the sun shining through the clouds.
Write a piece for the word, using the third definition. The piece must be no less than 33 words and no more than 333 words. You have to use the word given to you. The word for this week is TURKEY and the third definition is “three successive strikes in bowling.” And no, I did not know that word meant that too.
It was the afternoon, my mom and sister were fiddling with their phones while I was bored out of my skull. I had remembered about the fun times my sister and I had playing with our Wii. I thought after a few more practices I think I could get better at Just Dance. After asking for her to play with me, twice. She finally caved in and said, “I’ll set it up for you, but I’m not going to play with you.” Inside I was sad, but then again it could help if I just did it by myself. So I said, “that’s fine” and she set it up for me. I played a couple of rounds and had my workout for the day. My legs could only take so much movement before I fall out of my own chair. So when I took a break, I wondered if we still had those sport games or not. After bragging about the points I got, I asked my sister if we still the sports. She said “yes” with a heavy sign, like I was annoying her. We’re sisters, we’re supposed to do that from time to time. Anyways, I exit out of Just Dance and attempted to get myself through Tennis and Bowling. I’ve played Tennis probably twice and I’ve never played Bowling before. My sister has, she said it was difficult. Lucky for her, I like challenges. As long as I don’t fall out of my wheelchair while playing it, I’ll be okay. Well I tried to do my first swing and failed miserably. Try holding it with your foot, push the button underneath, while balancing her body on the edge of the seat. It’s not easy! Well, in a normal person’s eyes if they saw my score sheet they would say I wasn’t any good, but the turkey was probably my favorite thing about it. I didn’t see the others. I told my most and sister. They were proud of me too!
Well, today has been somewhat boring. Not as bad as spending three days in a row in a boring spell, but it could get there if I don’t do much tomorrow. I’ve been listening to the new releases of Ellie Goulding and Avril Lavigne throughout the day. I also even tried to listen to Avenged Sevenfold’s new album this morning, but I think having my speakers on the lowest volume it will go without waking up my dad in the next room, just ruined my moment of listening to it. I think I’ll listen to it in a bit or if I’m bored as crap tomorrow, I’ll listen to it then instead. I’ve been looking for more “easy” DIY nail art designs. I think I’m obsessed, I had to fight back saying to my dad that if he was a girl, I would decorate his nails too, not once but TWICE!!! What is wrong with me? I am literally going to have to go to CVS soon and get some more colors because I’m pretty sure Blondie is going to want her school’s colors on her nails, since she’s picked the Ombre design. I can’t wait to try that out on her nails! I’m not in a mood to do much, like reading or coming up with a poem. However, my mom found the movie “Van Heising” last night before I (she) went to bed. My dad had been watching it while my mom was getting me ready for therapy and I was very into it. Honestly, I have a lady crush on Kate Beckinsale and thinks Hugh Jackman is really hot with long hair. So you can’t blame me there. I actually got to see how it starts and finishes today, so I was pretty happy that my mom found it last night. It’s pretty good and it came out before the vampire hype too.
To those who haven’t seen it, here is the trailer:
