Friday Fictioneers: Madness

This is my maiden voyage into the realm of the Friday Fictioneers. I was encouraged by my fellow writer and poet, Bill @ Our Literary Journey. A big shout out to Rochelle @ Rochelle Wisoff-Fields-Addicted to Purple for hosting Friday Fictioneers. The weekly challenge she presents is to write a story based on the photo prompt, provided today by Ted Strutz. My challenge is to write a complete story in 100 words or less. Wish me luck!

“Are we a normal family,” he asked. 

"Shhh," I whispered. "We are a mad lot, we creatives, but you know that darling. You’re as mad as they come."

"Am I?" he sulked.

"How else do you explain the murals on our walls and the chain on the front door? I can only imagine what the place looks like to the outside world. The groundskeeper ran off after your last fit some decades ago."

"Has it been that long, Sister?"

"Longer, I fear, but one day when they open this house it will be a shrine to your creative madness."

	

Poetry ~ Your Muse

i am the doorway
to your next adventure

i am the moonbeam
shining on your desires

i am the stardust
illuminating your path

i am the magic
inspiring your creativity

i am all your possibilities
i am all that you find fascinating

if you believe in moonbeams,
stardust, and magic

believe in me

i am your muse

Poetry ~ Creation

we live in a constant state of creation
spiritually, emotionally, physically
forever expanding the universe
with the simple stroke of an
ink pen or paint brush
with the utterance
of every word
the singing 
of a song
the look
in our
eyes
