Light and Shade: Two Tries

Light and Shade Challenge 04.July.2014

To make up for last week – I worked to get two pieces in one post while still remaining within the prescribed word count limit!


Measure This

I was tasked by my masters to find,
Tools to measure the passage of time,
I tried the tape first
But, they yelled and they cursed;
Though the clock I presented was fine.

Do You Think?

Look at her, she’s beautiful today.

Has she changed her hair? New dress maybe?

I don’t think so… I don’t know. She just looks-
prettier somehow.
She’s positively glowing!

Did you see that? Did you see? She touched her belly. Do you think?

  1. Two for the price of one! What an excellent deal. I loved both of them – humour in the first, sheer delight in the second

  2. Given that, technically, we should probably be talking in terms of spacetime (unless Star Trek has been lying to me all these years) then I think the tape measure was perhaps just as valid a tool with which to begin measuring as the clock. So your masters could’ve cut you some slack 🙂
