Well? in 55


What would you do
If in a moment
Everything you love, and have, and hold
Will be gone?

If there was a warning - a breath taken -
That told you the secret
Of the end to come...

Would you know what to say
In a word?
How to show - in a breath - what you feel?
Well?


G-Man asks a small favor - write a quick dose of fiction, in 55 words - no more, no less. 
Humor him and write your own, then visit him HERE and tell him all about it. I did.

G-Man said...

LOVE...
Thats what I would say.
And speaking of...
I just LOVE inquisitive 55's
Thank You for playing, Happy Mothers Day, and have a Kick Ass Week-End...G

G-Man said...

Or Maybe I would simply say....
Yahtzee!!!

Pheromone Girl said...

Go, G-Man! You're on a roll today!

Thanks for the Mother's Day wishes. I share Mother's Day love with all the women in my world that love and mother me, even though we're not related!

Brian Miller said...

ok you are giving me a bit of the shivers with this one...do you know something we do not know? the G nailed it...all we need is Love, love, love is all we need...

Monkey Man said...

One word? I can do 55 or 160 Characters, but one word? Love is taken so I'll have to cheat and go with two words - I'm home.

Austin said...

Really good one again, Great 55's today! I felt the anxiety and peace of this poem & agree completely with Brian & G - Love, because it conquers all!

Blood, Sweat and Tears is mine this week.

Jingle said...

beautiful wonders.

everything we love is gone, find something new to love and grow passion at.

new doors always open up as old ones close.

fantastic 55.

Happy Mother's Day to Moms around you. Blessings..

funny G-man I was going to say love
but YAHTZEE is better!

This 55 requires deep thinking about what my answer might be...

thanks for sharing it

that is all

hedgewitch said...

It's a very real possibility in all our lives that we have to live with, and I don't believe there is ever an answer you could prepare in advance. Great 55.

Belinda Munoz said...

Its likelihood is ever-increasing in this climate. Maybe it's not one word...maybe it's action...

Great 55.

Olivia said...

Been there a few times already!
Knowing about it before hand definitely helps me to prepare..

very intense wordplay!
Hugs xox

Perfect work.

Mama Zen said...

This gave me a chill. Wow.

Margaret said...

Outstanding photo and 55. Let's hope our last words and breath would be of love and not fear...

Pheromone Girl said...

Thanks, everyone. I was inspired (don't laugh!) by the opening scene of Terminator 2, which strangely showed up more than once, a few days ago, in interactions with people.

For me? There is but one word I would share, at the end, to those I know and love:

THANKS

Unless, of course, I get a sentence, and I'd have to steal from Douglas Adams:
So long, and thanks for all the fish.

kkrige said...

I like your sentence PG. When I was there, my word was "NO!", even though I knew it was coming. I didn't want to know.

So FISH will have to be the backup word I guess.

or gunapher (my word verification)

Loved your creative work, PG

Take Care

No idea. But if I have to be there at the end of the world, it wouldn't be so bad to be at ground zero. Less to worry about that way.

Me said...

Wow, intense thought.

Sadly, I find these sorts of limits challenging, and my one word would likely be "Ummm...".

Great photo too, by the way.
