Being Neighborly

Doing her marketing

She saw the man next door

Knowing he was cash poor

She hatched a plan

She loaded up her cart

With his favorite foods

The things he just might use

For his suppers

As she was checking out

Paid for delivery

Bags of groceries three

Added a tip

Charli Mills presented the Flash Fiction challenge of using the phrase”carry on” in whatever way we feel inspired. I choose to use the phrase as a phrase! Join in the FUN at the Carrot Ranch anytime.

Life doesn’t always play out the way you would like. There will be twists and turns even on the straightest of paths.

Corrie looked at herself in the mirror, almost not recognizing her own face. No longer the face of a child, the face of a young career girl, or even the face of a newlywed. No, this was a face of a woman who had been through the mill, as they say.

As she pulled her hair back into a ponytail, a wry smile appeared. This is the face of a woman who has learned to carry on!

Bum’s Rush

The wrinkle in the tout’s

Pitch for merchandise cheap

Lull customers to sleep

No excitement

Packs his traveling case

Off to find a new crowd

No street selling allowed

Oh, drat the luck
