One liner Wednesday ~Ape act


“Steve, You know how this works- Lay there quietly until they come get us, then be a monkey”


Written for The Haunted Wordsmith’s daily prompt challenge and Linda G. Hill’s one line Wednesday prompt.


Story starter challenge – Cinema #hwdp


The stub is split as you begin your retreat

Your world left outside as you seek to find seats

Others surround you in this collaborative quest

An escape from one’s life with all of its tests

You’ve heard of this place with its gateways to amaze

And it’s artists within who invite you to their charade

The food for your journey feels synonymous with this time

Exploded ears bucketed never tasted so sublime

Curtains pull back tingling your reactions

The suspense of the debut grows with each attraction

It’s arrived in your sight as the lights are dimmed slowly

A showtime of wonder that unites all from loved to the lonely


Inspired by the Haunted Wordsmith’s Story starter challenge prompt – “The lights dimmed slowly.”
