55 - hunting of desires





wild is the moody sky as temperamental winds fly into the great unknown looking for old sins. in the eyes a glint that says “do not mess with me. i am out to catch the tail of pleasures desperately” ...a hunger you can fill alone through the fearless hunting of desires to which you’re prone.






every friday, compose a short story of 55 words - no more, no less. if you want to join in the fun and games and give it a try...post your story and report to the boss G-Man

  4. Oooo. That's me, alright. Constantly seeking out all that pleasure and desire and stuff.

    You know me too well.

  5. If you're looking for old sins they must not be that old or that forgotten or that finished. Huh.

  6. "...temperamental winds fly...looking for old sins."

    This is memorable, hauntingly beautiful.

    Wait, there is more:
    "..a hunger you can fill...through the fearless hunting of desires..."

  7. Cool Shadow, bad temptations be damned I am going to catch the desires.
    Love the image also, Nicholson in the The Shining is one of scarest villians of all time.

  12. Wonderful 55! Loved the picture and the mood. You wondered if my 55 about being pregnant with possibilities really happened: Yes it did.
    Happy hunting!

  14. Wow Shadow...you nailed the picture! Very haunting and daunting 55 so close to Hallows Eve! I don't need to go looking for old sins...they seem to find me on their own :o)

  18. That was very cool and laid back... and almost like poetry when read aloud. I like that!

  19. You have a special gift to reach the unknown and translate it in words. Brilliant.

  20. I'm trying to stay out of the temperamental winds that are flying around me - stay out of any wild moods.

    Always enjoy your 55s.

  22. "wild is the moody sky as temperamental winds fly..." - You have a remarkable talent to play with words, dear friend.

  23. "fearless hunting of desires..." that describes me as I search through all of the 55's posted this week. You spin a great tale. My 55 is also up.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Dear God, let me sin just for a while longer...and please don't let me die before I'm done. I still have places to go, You know! Amen."

    Good, Shadow.
    PEACE!

  27. If I were walking down the street and suddenly saw that painting of "Heeeeeere's Johnny" glaring down at me, I think I might faint.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Hunting your desires is good. Eating them is satiating. I have been told in the days before pony tail and beard that I looked like Jack in that photograph.

    "Heeerrreeeee's Johnny"

  31. Man,that was good!!! And to have Jack Nicolson come out and catch me is just as real.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Shadow-I first looked at the image and then read and it came to me "the moody eye" instead of sky. (thanks a bunch, Jack)
    I'm wondering how this hunt will feel in the morning and who really is the hunted. Great 55!~rick

  35. there are some old sins better left alone, some desires better left to their own demise because trying to catch the tail of pleasures could mean losing your own ass (hehehe) I'm sure you know what I mean. I did like this one very much though...

    ReplyDelete
  36. I like your words. Do you do much creative writing, or mostly poetry? I love both :)

    ReplyDelete
  37. I always love your 55's.

    "Wild as the moody sky," that phrase is an apt description for today. It teases my brain. (Hugs)Indigo
