One Single Impression: Junction


Billie and Joey

Billie and Joey were joined at their waist;
never was found one without the other.
Billie was always happy no matter,
it seems she'd always wanted a brother.

Billie liked to be alone with Joey.
Her love was for her two year-old brother.
A language of their own they would speak;
Joey never would talk with his mother.

Becoming three it seemed there was no hope.
The doctors said they'd seen sight this before.
Billie was always happy no matter;
praying Mother asked for better by four.

Then came the day a new lad came along.
He had eyes of blue, was tall like her dad.
Joey, silent as before, said he'd go.
His being was only in Billie's head.

Hmm, the imaginary friend? I never had one, but sometime wonder if that consciousness inside that speaks to me, is a little like Joey. Most creative take on the prompt Jim.

I had an inkling about that. You told it so well...

at the junction of mind over body

That was unusal--pleasantly, so. Such a story. You invite your reader into another world.

This was so clever! An imaginary friend can be a very comforting thing for a child. Well done!

Jim,
This was a very good junction and most believeable.

Life gives us many connections...the seen and the unseen.

Definitely a unique spin, no matter how you look at it. Until the last line I was thinking of conjoined twins.

I, too, thought it was going to be conjoined twins, so you surprised me. How refreshing to look at things from a child's point of view! :o)

creative mind you have Jim, but there's a reality in it...you were speaking of a conjoined twins? hope i am right...

that was a subtle interpretation of the prompt Jim, I really admire how you did it!

thumbs up!

This was good - very creative- although I was expecting cojoined twins being separated- lol. You always do such interesting takes on the prompt- love that! Happy Holidays

I had several make believe friends in my lifetime, and at times I write about them.

"I am sorry to be so late in returning your comment. I too am snowed under right now. But I still write and post. Does that make sense?"

Jim, this makes lot of sense to me. Thank you for your very insightful comments, I truly appreciate your clear vision.

I just wanted to stop by again and say Merry Christmas- hope you and your family have a wonderful one!
