Distraction

if I looked into your eyes
close enough to note your pupil size
this would be a distraction, maybe even a call for action
you’d accept this motion by becoming more responsive
with our eyes, with our musings, with our sighs
fulfilling each our wishes, intertwined

In response to the Six Sentence Story Weekly Challenge

Centered

Careful to stay on point, I choose the place to position my focus

Everything around me has faded as I center my thoughts on the focal point

Not to be sidetracked, I fight the urge to look about and mind wander

Telling myself this is for a purpose I try my best to stay on point

Eventually, I loosen up, letting go of intrusive thoughts as I gain clarity

Releasing my anxieties, focusing on the point, breathing naturally, I am centered

Charlie bowled us over with his jokes.

Simone bowled so many strikes, she was declared the champion.

I was in the company of both people when Maureen brought a big bowl of popcorn.

We gathered some smaller bowls and helped ourselves to the delicious, buttery treat.

Harold could be spotted a mile away with his bowler hat, toting the sodas.

We all tried on his hat and had a fun, lighthearted time, full of snacks, fun, and togetherness.

She searched for alternatives for the painting of her life. Her paper was beautiful with shades of blue. They ranged from the brightness of the sky to the stylings of The Thrill is Gone. She wondered if she liked brightness the best or if she had to choose.

When she dipped her brush in the water, ready to thin her blue, she paused. Reflecting about where her journey had taken her, she shook out her brush and poured a cup of coffee and smiled.
