Saturday Centus ~ The Machine

Well, seems like our dear Centus leader is back to her old tricks ... this week, we don't get a prompt ... and we don't get 100 words .... instead we get Fives ... you heard me ... fives!!!  which means we must write on any topic, any style, and tell the story in Five sentences ... and if that is not enough, we also must limit each sentence to Five words only ... oh this was a struggle ... easier said than done!

She fed the noisy machine.
Grey descended and enveloped her. 
It this all that remains?
Tiny shreds of my existence.
Is anyone out there ... anyone?

okay, okay, so i was shredding documents on this cold grey day while listening to the Beatles and yes, Eleanor Rigby was playing ...
well, thats my Five & Five.  Just click on Jenny's button below for some interesting reads!

This was a nice piece of writing, although I feel left without context.

My name is Ames...am I am a shredder too.

I shred everything. My poor shredder can be heard at all hours of the day and night and if you listen closely you can hear it say "not again!"~Ames

Good 5 X 5, Jo. It reminds me of what happens when we push the 'delete button on the computer. :)

Actually, this made me think of someone being incenerated - where is my mind at, lol! Of course, I have had a shredder for a year now and still can't get myself to use it.

Hello.
I commend you for this little number...no way I'd be able to manage it! Just one typo in line 3 "It">"Is".

Ahh, yes, I can hear the song playing as you shred. Shredding does get very tedious, but good for you for doing it. Nice use of the five theme.

For some reason I was reading something macabre into this post and the post script really came as a surprise!

Shredding papers is absolutely one of those endless jobs. I'm laughing at your image of it, though.
