Five Sentence Fiction: Detour


Sleeping, silent, a gentle purr,
Curled up, so small, a ball of Fur.

Listening, alert, a familiar sound,
Footsteps, padding along the ground.

Paused, still, not even a flicker,
Eyes dart, mind whirrs, which way is quicker.

Glaring, a look, the window is shut,
How to escape that dastardly mutt.

Jumping, up high, to the top of the fridge,
A shelf, on the wall, that serves as a bridge.

  5. Poetry! Now there's something I hadn't even considered, so I shall bear that in mind for future FSF - thank you. Lovely piece. If you enjoy reading poetry, I've had a stab at a couple over on my blog, so feel free to dip your toe into it any time, if you so desire :)

    1. Thanks, I wrote it because when my story mojo runs off I rely on poetry to look after me. I will definitely be checking out some of your poems as your FSF is great.

  6. Not inspired?

    Really well done.

    The beginning reminded me of this.
