Hey everyone, I got permission from Amy of HeavenOn Earth blog to use her amazing nature photos to write this haiku journey. Alongside, are short twenty word stories for Bookish Bubble’s #TWT. Hope you enjoy.
pale sun and cold winds
memories in the empty
where beauty lingers
Beneath the Vivid, are the secrets of where it all began. For who you have become, there was once nothing.
lost forsaken seed
you must fight lonely battles
to bloom from the murk
Beneath the Vivid, a story of defiance unfolds. Though the voice cannot be heard, a thought takes root. A dream!
against fell winters
comes the test of endurance
how bad you want it
Beneath the Vivid, the struggle goes unrewarded. And the one who is something, but not yet that intended thing, despairs.
the first fruits of spring
a pittance to thorough-breds
Was it all worth it?
Astride the Vivid, you come to a Crossroads: who you want to be, who you are, and who you can become.
twigs on the vine
fallen branches do not mourn
the room made for growth
Aloft with the Vivid, beauty flocks to beauty. But you were not born this way. You see deeper, further, Beneath the Vivid.

HYPE is a story of survival and resilience and hope.
Cici’s junior year in high school is going to be the best year ever. Popular co-captain of the varsity cheerleading team, she’s dating the starting quarterback. Even her jealous co-captain’s attempts to steal her boyfriend can’t curb her enthusiasm.
When her mom moves in with her fiancé, a handsome, wealthy man, only one small detail threatens Cici’s perfect life. The school’s social pariah is about to become her stepsister, and Cici wants nothing to do with her.
Everything changes when someone Cici cares about throws her life into a tailspin, and the one person Cici couldn’t stand becomes her only ally.
Warning: This story contains scenes of sexual assault. Visit Yvette’s website for more of awesome work: Yvette Calleiro.

I may have gone overkill with five twenty-word-story submissions for BookBubble, but I’d promised to send one in yesterday, so this is me making up for being late. The prompt word was Vivid, so I made it a major theme and used it a lot, lol. But most importantly, it fit so well with the message arroused by Amy’s Photography.
Looking forward to your thoughts,
