Six Sentence Story: Green Coat

He tore my green, soft, favorite coat, the one I wore so much.

I felt I was not the one he wanted me to be, not anymore. 

All good things must come to an end, or should it be just the bad?

Clutching my torn coat and shutting the door in front of him, tears shed from my burning eyes.
I said goodbye.

It is his loss, not mine.


  1. I get this. I have things like that. They become part of me and if they are more so than the persons around me, then the persons aren't part of me. This is good, deep, and thought provoking in a very short spurt of words. Good one.

  2. "All good things must come to an end, or should it be just the bad?"
    A simple question, yet gives one pause to think. Why would anything good have to end? The only thing that makes sense to me is that there's something better waiting to take its place.
    When it comes to people and relationships, once the line is crossed where respect for the other person has been lost, all is lost.
    The most difficult moment sometimes is the final decision to close that door, literal or figurative and try and remember those famous words from Hamlet - "to thine own self be true".

  3. Damn!*

    * a compliment for a Six written in a style (a pome) that I have only a rudimentary understanding of, yet I gots to say, 'Excellent Six!'

  4. Tons of things to think about in a short six. Maybe the truth is that all things - good or bad - do come to an end and that is simply the cycle of life. Maybe our judgment of such events and endings as "good" or "bad" is more about our feelings and perspective than anything objective. Lots to consider here.

Summer is in the Air

It's June! I haven't fully experience spring yet and it's almost summer. Where did the spring go? It is still here, I guess. I am between what to plant outdoors? Spring plants or Summer plants in relation to the best season to plant them. Oh, well, maybe both. At least, the probability of frost may be over. It is usually by Memorial day in Colorado. I have many reasons to be thankful aside from the nice weather suitable for planting. It is also a good season to hike. Look at my two-year-old grandson. He is a natural hiker. He just loves exploring the outdoors, perhaps more than my son, his dad, wants. He would pick up anything interesting in his eyes. Bugs? Dandelion? To me, as long as he does not try to taste them, is OK. :) My son caught a fish after trying so many times. Simple fun. My daughter playing "hair" with a Fuschia headpiece my niece, gave us something to smile about. I am planting again. My outdoor tower planter is full of tomatoes both from store bro

Sweet Times

Say hello to our new dog, Bando. He is an 8-week old boxer mix dog. We estimate he will grow and weigh up to 70 pounds. As my family got over the untimely death of our miniature poodle, Snowball, we all welcome this new baby, Bando, into the house. Josiah loves dogs and our dogs love him. They are all are very sweet.  We can't have too much sweetness in the house. So grandma got some cupcakes for them to decorate. Josiah decided to decorate his face instead though. It was a mix of cool nights and warm to hot days. It's nice to go out and be around the water, even man-made dams. We took a hike this morning. I am still growing plants, even indoors. Here is today's picture of my little aquaponics. Fish in the bottom, plants on top. I like these sprouts on my salad. I lost my father a few years ago. He died in the hospital after a few days stay. His passing, however painful to us, was a relief for him. I am thankful his suffering ended. I feel grateful for a good week. Happy

Week of Painting

I would post a picture of grand vacation but I don not have the money to go. What I have done are trips to the mall not to shop but to paint. Take a look at our work--simple and fun. My daughter enjoyed it too.
