A little too late…Friday fiction in five sentences.

He was so mad he couldn’t wait to teach both of them a lesson or twenty.

Furiously he swerved round the bend and simultaneously picked up his phone and took a second look at the incriminating picture.

In split seconds, he failed to see the puppy, the boy, and the mother…

Slammed brakes, screeching tires, a dogs yelp, the mixed cries of boy and mother as they watch their beloved Sandy struggle…

…The angry haze lifted from Tony’s eyes.

Below is my first just published Poetry Book “Out of the silent breath” which is available on Amazon and Smashwords.

She is amazing at describing love and life in her poems. She creates such beautiful images with her words. Truly, she is a talented writer and I’m so excited to have her poetry book and to continue reading through it.

  1. This went straight to my heart, Jacqueline. It’s amazing how quickly and efficiently you’re able to grab the reader. Your talent never ceases to impress me 🙂 Anger is a cold and unforgiving master, blinding the truth.

  3. I remember being so angry at work once — sexist boss who lit into me for 45 minutes for not laughing at his vulgar joke — I knew I couldn’t be on the road. I was able to keep it together enough to go three blocks to a Gap store, where I shopped for jeans until I calmed down enough to drive. (And yes, I was nice to the sales people.) It’s scary to think what I could have done if I hadn’t had enough sense to stay away from my car at that time.
