Structure – Six Sentence Story

On a table in his hotel room Simon began building a house of cards carefully laying each one next to or on another lest the structure fall showing the futility of his addiction. Meanwhile the full moon rose over the Sea of Galilee sparkling light on calm water.

After he used up all his cards he opened the door to the balcony to breathe in the cool air. He saw the moon, higher now but still beautiful, and he wondered why he wasted his time with those cards.

Coincidental with Simon’s wonder one card in the house he built gave up supporting the others. With a swoosh all of the cards lay flat on the table.


Denise offers the prompt word “structure” to be used in this week’s Six Sentence Stories.

Full Moon, Sea of Galilee

I enjoy walking, poetry and short prose as well as taking pictures with my phone.

    1. Yes, I took the photo. My wife and I were in Israel in September. Except for building the house of cards, which we didn’t do, the story was about us looking at the moonrise over the Sea of Galilee.

  1. What calm waters under the night sky! It’s easy to imagine it as being just after Christ stilled the stormy waters that caused such fear in His disciples that they woke Him up in terror.

    1. Just a little breeze is all it takes. When I made such structures with my daughter I am surprised any of them stood for as long as they did. Thank you, Clark!
