Dribbles and Drabbles -


MOTHERS & DAUGHTERS

 

I walk into the staff room and hear Mel droning on about her daughter.  ‘We’re besties, tell each other everything,’ she crows.

She catches my eye ‘Shame you don’t get on with yours.’

‘Really?! I snap, ‘It was your daughter who provided mine with cocaine. Did she tell you that?!’

CONFESSION

 

Tyrone took a deep breath. ‘Dad, this is hard for me to tell you, so please, don’t say anything, just listen.’

In the hall his sisters were eavesdropping.

‘Why is he telling him?’ mouthed, Rose, ‘he knows what dad’s views are’.

‘I tried to talk him out of it’, Yolanda whispered back,’ but he said he needed to be open about who he was.’

There followed an eerie silence broken when Desmond roared,

‘Get out of my house you degenerate! You’re no son of mine!’

‘Oh, why did he do it? sighed Rose ‘Why did he become a Tory MP?’

HAIKUS -


The haiku is a Japanese poetic form that consists of three lines, with five syllables in the first line, seven in the second, and five in the third. Jacqueline has used this form to create stories (nano-fiction).


ASSASSIN

Sidling up to him

Fluttering her eyelashes

She drew out her knife
