Short Story: Waikiki #BlogShorts

by Tom B. Taker

Moonlight reflected from her eyes as he fiercely pulled her close.

With waves of Waikiki lapping at their feet, they embraced.

Plunging to the sand, they fused. The ocean roared.

This post is part of the BlogShorts challenge. June 2011 – 30 stories – 30 words – 30 days.

  1. Very nice mini-vacation! You’re pretty darned good at this blog shorts thing, a haiku master even.


    1. Hey, thanks! Nice to see you! I appreciate the kind words very much.


  2. Nice poem. Also like your WordPress theme.


    1. Thank you very much. Pleased to make your acquaintance. And ditto on the theme! I’ll be by for a visit as soon as time permits. I’m currently powdering my nose.


  3. Wait — that’s not cynical… that’s lovely.


    1. Part of the challenge is to write beyond my experience. πŸ™‚


  4. I think more than just a cocktail is going to be raised during Holy Time tonight. πŸ˜‰


    1. You’d think so, but then again, we were way out in the woods where there were no showers. πŸ™‚

      While there, we discovered Super Holy Holy Time. It’s time when you’re someplace else, like in the woods, other than work. We both had Friday off. At 5:00pm we transitioned from Super Holy Holy Time to regular Holy Time. It was a very spiritual experience.

      Heading back home today Mrs. Abyss started to experience the physical symptoms of returning to regular life. Tomorrow at work it isn’t going to be pretty. It was a good ride while it lasted, though.


      1. I thought you were suspiciously silent the past few days. Glad your spiritual retreat was so uplifting…and that you didn’t scare too many bears. πŸ™‚


Bringeth forth thy pith and vinegar
