Meter – Six Sentence Story

Daniel had no problem believing in demons especially since members of his family, including himself, were messed up like lines of broken meter trashing a melodious poem. What didn’t sink in was the thought that the salvation which the street preacher taught included deliverance from those pesky critters.

Anyway Daniel’s life bounced like a yoyo, like an echo, like his day-trading portfolio from one curse to the next. Often he would confuse a curse for a blessing only to find out that he had fallen back into the rabbit hole of his addictions.

Things stayed pretty much the same until a miracle occurred. Like receiving a nourishing sandwich rather than spare change he might trade for stimulations he didn’t need all Daniel had to do was reach out, take and eat which he finally did.


Denise offers the word “meter” to be used in this week’s Six Sentence Stories. Associated with these prompts is a YouTube Channel, Two Guys and a Girlie, discussing the writing of these stories featuring Clark, Nick and Denise streaming live on Sundays at 2:30 PM EST.

    1. Thank you, Rebecca! I am glad you like them. Although I didn’t realize it when I took the photo the Eastern Gate is in the upper left. If I knew that I would have moved the phone to the left a bit to get all of it in the photo.


  1. Love that closing line, alluding to the Lord’s Supper. Opting for eternal treasure instead of the temporal is as simple as Daniel discovered. I’m enjoying your pictures from Israel, Frank. Just wow. And thanks for the heads up on the YouTube channel!

  2. So many can be like Dan: They seen enough darkness to know demons are real; but they need to see His grace and they need to trust in Christ and the Spirit’s sanctification

  3. Sometimes the shortest step to salvation is the hardest to take. Glad your mc found his way.
    And can I say? “messed up like lines of broken meter trashing a melodious poem.” Wow! Terrific.

  4. Excellent opening line, Frank.
    ..”messed up like lines of broken meter trashing a melodious poem.” is without question, my favorite part of that sentence.
    Hindsight is always handy for pointing out the curses we first viewed as blessings. Tricky part is recognizing the red flags moving forward.
