Microfiction Monday

Write a story in 140 characters, then let Susan know you came to play.




This week's photo.

Agreeing to pick up a load of abandoned stone,
he'd never envisioned this.

Mother Nature cradled the remains in her arms.

He left it to her.

This was nice Hope, Mother Nature always seems to know when to help.

Oh, I like this one, with the surprise find for the man. Personally, I would've taken the stones, but that's just me.

Sylvia K said...

Oh, I love this one! I would have been tempted to take them myself so I admire him! Have a great week!

Nice one. We're on a similar theme here.

I think it was left to the right person. I wonder if there are inheritance taxes LOL. :) Well done my friend. :)

Ellie said...

Good on him, but I would have taken the stones too!

I really enjoyed this one because it left so many unanswered questions. I'd like to hear more of this tale.

You burn a chicken and do the smoke dance and then the stones stop cursing. My 140 is here

Abandoned, indeed. I'm glad that there are still people out there that know when to leave well enough alone.

I'm completely with steven on this - perfect piece of prose.
Beautiful, emotional, wry-smile-iful.

Susan at Stony River said...

Aaawwwww... I love this one. And the earth itself certainly does seem to be cuddling this house to her heart. Most of all I love that man, for his insight and sensitivity!

Some things are best left untouched, to be reclaimed by Mother Nature.

R. Burnett Baker said...

This said so much about the man's sentimentality. Seems that he held the past and it's lives in high regard! Nice story'!!!

Thanks y'all!

Two additional weeks of Summer Program have me a little nutty at the moment, so bear with me. Thanks!

When all else doesn't seem right, Nature comes with the best solution to those who pause and think for a while.
