Trust – Daily Prompt


Jose lit the fire and played his flute made of bamboo. He got used to its tune and he thought he was getting better with it. Ah, the joy of simple living! He has been living in this island for quite some time now. He thought it’s a good place to write his novel, so with some provisions and his pen and paper, he became a stranger to the rest of the world. And he trusted his instinct and quick reaction to the challenges of living alone in the deserted island. He observed nature, trees and leaves grew and wilted, birds sang, the sound of the waves and splashes.

Trust – Prompt 14 – Set The Challenge Sunday #2


She kept looking in her mirror. The car was still following her. She was sure it was the same car. She did another unnecessary turn, just to see what the driver in the dark Suburban would do. Maybe she was crazy. Maybe he was heading the same direction she was. But there was this weird feeling. This sick gut feeling and the last had taught her to listen to her instincts.

Meanwhile, Ricardo was waiting for the detective to tell him what his wife, Esmeralda was doing. Is she cheating on him? What was she doing on her spare time? Is she seeing another man? He couldn’t help it. Marrying someone 20 years younger gives him this insecure feeling.

When they got married, Ricardo was the happiest man on earth. Esmeralda was so beautiful it hurt him to think that she could be with another man at this time. Esmeralda was always full of life, breezing through life as we speak. She likes travelling, sight-seeing, cycling, sailing and all other fun activities. She’s also very sociable, always surrounded by friends and colleagues, very popular and will grace any event. She works part-time in a publishing company.

Ricardo has his own successful business and travels most of the time. Sometimes, he takes Esmeralda with him. But when he’s alone, that’s when this insecure feeling creeps in. That’s why he hired this detective to follow his wife around.

wanting to know where wife is
hired a detective

not good when he cannot trust
the love of his life

the love of his life
perhaps more faith needed here
for love to survive

trust that hope will come
balm to all my frantic pain
eager to make way

give to your soul
trust, love and devotion

yes or no, I ask
always trust your instinct

Writing 201: Trust

Today’s word is trust: write a poem in which you address, reflect on, or tell a story about the feeling of trusting or being trusted by another (person, animal, object, potted plant…). Or about distrusting them (or not being trusted yourself).

How I love thee
I trust you completely
My rock, my shoulder, my strength

Indeed we are together
Now and forever, I hope
Devoted to each other
Over the moon and far away
Or I’m lost without you
Reminiscing the experience we share
Super duper they are and really appreciate them

Trust the dust to be in the crust
I forgot to make the pancake when I was awake
It was a blustery Tuesday yesterday

Gawk at the frocks at the parade
Cheerful carnival with their dirndl
Fun at the pun as the son spun
