poetry, six sentence story

Shelter

Purcilla was spotted at a glimpse, purring, hungry

Her crystalized coat, appeared first, her eyes next

Her shelter was spotted on the porch, she was hivering silver in a large planter

Tink-tink-tink on a tuna tin, Henry got her attention

He placed the can on the porch, near the door

She cautiously approached, devoured and purred

…..

this is my six lined poem for this week’s six sentence story, following the prompt word “shelter.”

Walter Stephen Geeding comes from a family of law-enforcement professionals. His father – was FBI; his great-grandfather – former City Marshall of Lanagan in McDonald County; his nephew – a detective in Newton County, MO, is now an instructor of criminology. 1999 through 2006 saw Steve serving McDonald County, Missouri as Elected Prosecutor. In 2007 he opened his solo law firm, W. Stephen Geeding, Attorney at Law, LLC. Steve was born in Washington D.C., but raised in southwestern MO, where his people and his roots are. He attended Missouri Southern State College, before going on to receive his Juris Doctorate in 1996. Steve is former president of Newton/McDonald County Bar Association, the River shares Committee, CRP Committee and Adult, Juvenile, and Family Drug Court. Currently, Steve is a member of Missouri Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, Missouri Family Law List Serve, a lifetime member of the National Rifle Association and the North America Hunting Club. Steve has resided in McDonald County for the last 33 years with his wife Linda. Their blended family has 6 children and 14 grandchildren. He has written and published a trilogy of fantasy and time travel, with a creational theme, based around actual events happening on Earth today. He has published a small book of Christmas poems and short stories. Steve is editing a fifth book, set in 1822 New Mexico, the first in a new fictional series of time travel, is working on the second book in that series, and is attempting to format a full volume of poetry amassed over the last thirty plus years. He has also finished a children’s book, which is currently being illustrated. Steve’s logo is the word Solitaire, in his words “a diamond in the rough.” Why Solitaire you might ask and his reply would be: Solitaire is my life, my logo. It is best explained by this: Born in Washington DC to an FBI agent, I moved back home to Missouri at an early age, grew up, married, more than once, raised my kids and bought a place on the river I named Solitaire. It has kept me sane and is truly my diamond in the rough.

Hard Pressed is OUT!


Hard Pressed, LaVan Robinson’s latest book of prose poetry is now available. You can get your copy on Amazon.com

Hard Pressed is a book of poetry by LaVan Robinson. A seasoned poet who has several poems and books published; this is the book of books. What makes life hard? What is pressing on the mind? What are the concerns in society that keep us up at night? It is hard, in a society driven by fear, to find ways to resolve issues. It takes open, honest communication with those whom we live close, with our daily contacts, with the authorities, and the powers of us. We the people of this society can make choices to enact change. This can be through several means. Hard Pressed – flavors of a society through the eyes of humanity explores and offers poetic prose thoughts of the poet.
