Eulogy

Six Sentence Story prompt – Zip

We have been close since we shared a seesaw on the playground at kindergarten.
I always remember as teenagers, we lied on the lawn in your backyard to count clouds. You said my head was always in the clouds so I was destined to be a sad poet, and I said you were as dramatic as an unpredictable downpour so you belonged to the stage.
You have been zipped in and out of my life, some times as exciting as a celebrity rash, at times like an annoying mosquito. I hold dear the fun time we shared and forgive you always stole the spotlight.
Today, we are here to celebrate a life lived fully and a soul brighter than sunshine.

  1. Such a great part: “You said my head was always in the clouds so I was destined to be a sad poet, and I said you were as dramatic as an unpredictable downpour so you belonged to the stage. ” Feels like the start of novel to me.

  2. Lovely Six. I like how their characteristics are related to the weather conditions, and how it ends on the word ‘sunshine’. Also, you can’t appreciate enough a line like: ‘annoying mosquito’ until you have been bitten by them more times than you remember! Ouch. Scratch. Scratch. 🙂

      1. Same here. I spent most my life in a cold country = no mosquitoes. Now I am in hotter climes they are a pure menace to me. 🙂

        The Dalai Lama said: “If you think you are too small to make a difference, try sleeping with a mosquito.”
