Energy – Six Sentence Story

Guilt followed the pride of life dissipating Zach’s energy. That may have been a good thing since he was wasting his time on stuff that didn’t matter.

But what mattered? Zack was just a simple guy with a conscience informing him that he had lost his way. To get back on track he ran after one godforsaken enlightenment program until it disappointed him giving it up for some other gnostic nonsense.

I can’t tell you how Zach found his way home because I am in the same hog pen that you are refusing to eat the miraculous pearls which allegedly would provide living energy that could not be equated with matter no matter how fast the speed of light was.

Denise offers the prompt word “energy” for this week’s Six Sentence Stories.

I was thinking of those pearls and swine in Matthew 7:6 when E=mc2 came to mind. The “I” in the story is the narrator running his mouth pretending to be the author.

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

    1. Good point: we can’t outsource God. Zach found his way home. I should have pointed that out. It’s the narrator who refused to see how it could have happened. Thank you, Mary!
