Lost, Trifecta Challenge

Dust coats the farmer’s nostrils and a single tear wells up and overflows with grief.  He remembers the words that his father said, “The sun and the rain will please or cause pain.”

This weekend’s http://www.trifecta.com challenge is to write a story entitled ‘Lost’ in exactly 33 words. The word ‘lost’ can only appear in the title, not your 33 words. Any reference to the TV show could result in another visit to see the editors in the Trifecta offices.

Lost

“Don’t say it.”

“Say what?”

“What you’re thinking.”

“Man, my feet hurt, it is cold and dark out here and I got to take a shit and you want to play guessing games?”

I Breathe To Be Free

I breathe to be free
Rid of me enticing too
The essence of you

Raising the bowl
Exposing my hole
Come fill my soul

Taking my spirit
To a place I can hear it
No more to fear it
