A Haiku for Three Line Tales.

Captain Jones was a decorated aviator and a seasoned astronaut who had commanded more than a dozen trips to the international space lab.

But Captain Jones had a secret obsession, one that he was sure his colleagues would take him to task for.

On Monday evenings, at 8 pm EST he would slip out to “check the solar panels”, though everyone knew that the real reason Jones kept his standing 8 pm Monday evening panel check appointment was to tune in to televised feed to find out which bachelorette would be receiving a rose that week.

Hello Again

Sarah was running out of time.

With only minutes to spare she scrambled to think of something to say that John would remember years from now when they would meet for the first time…again.

“You remind me of someone I would very much like to know…” she whispered, as she turned away, fading into air.

Right On Track

Sarah peered at the lights in the distant, groggy, her body weighed down by something she couldn’t identify, the pavement beneath her cold and damp.

It was a recurrent dream that dogged her night after night causing her to wonder if it was a premonition of impending doom, except for one tiny detail: the arrow.

While she was no dream expert, Sarah decided her dreams were a sign that she was on the right track, moving forward; in her heart she believed everything would work out for the best.

Tumbling Tease

“Look at me!” she squealed, teetering on the metal barrier, her jet black hair blending into the graffiti on the wall.

“Come down before you hurt yourself,” he yelled, “I see you, alright?!”

A well-planned slip of her sneakers sent her tumbling right into his arms, which, of course, had been her plan all along!
