Book Blurb Friday # 5

photo by Joey Claro

           Thanks to Lisa Ricard Claro, with her blog meme "Book Blurb Friday."

           Every Friday (actually, the early birds can get the photo the week before, and let their ideas gel) a picture is posted. Sometimes it's a photo snapped by one of her "children."  (Lisa has not ever given birth, and is really in her 30's, but she likes to portray an older, more experienced writer, so she rents children and passes them off as her own.  A "daughter" has posted a couple of these photos. Maybe the warranty on that one ran out, so now she's utilizing a different rental unit?)

          Go to her BBF button to get all the details---a blurb of 150 words or less, and then link it to Lisa's blog, along with commenting on everyone's burb. 

         Here is my offering (a bit lame):

Unrequited Forever

         They knew they did not belong together, that in the end, their hearts would be broken. Yet, they could not resist the almost-magnetic pull towards each other.

          In this earth-shattering true ground-breaking story, biologist I.M. Compost has uncovered the filthy details in his true grime story; he leafs nothing out!

        Once the seed of love Crimson felt for Pin Oak was planted, they clung to each other and were inseparable.  Pin Oak's handsome, sturdy trunk as well as his willingness to branch out was appealing... Crimson stayed unwaveringly true to her roots.

         "Her bloom never faded," said Pin Oak almost woodenly, attempting to hide his anguish... 

         Experience the same raking pain as Crimson, the pain Pin must endure as he remains rooted in place and unable to reach out.

(Note:  Some parts of this story are quite dirty.)  141 words 


  1. So sweet, Sioux. :-) I do enjoy a good anthropomorphizing.

    And THAT'S my big word of the day. :-) Happy weekend!!


  2. Can't wait to plant this one on my shelf. ;-)

  3. Somehow, I imagine Pin Oak to be afflicted with a peg leg ... he would at least get the sympathy vote ... (sorry!)

  4. Hehehe...rented children. You know what? It would have been cheaper to do that! You might be onto something. LOL

    Your blurb is blooming with insight! Bravo! No need for the "lame" warning...this is not lame. This is truly a pun-lover's delight. I love it so mulch!

  5. I could not resist that first line...and then the rest! Whatever happened to them?! Was he cut down in his prime? Set afire by his burning passion?? I must read it!!

  6. I'm sure every gardener will want to snap up your book faster than the winds of a spring storm!


  7. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, your sense of humor and I would "leaf" through this book immediately! :)

  8. Oh this was PUNishing! Loved it!

  9. I'm so sorry to take so long to read your BBF.
