Friday Fictioneers as brought to you by Madison Woods is up and running. This week’s photo is courtesy of Piya Singh (Bittercharm). Please feel free to stop by and participate.
I have 2 offerings this week…a short story and a poem…both at about 100 words each. Constructive criticisms and comments are welcome. Thank you!
I wouldn’t be able to get to your posts today…it’s going to be super busy for me but I should be getting to them all by Friday afternoon or so…thank you for your patience.
THE PERFECT LOCATION- A SHORT STORY
“The location is perfect” Kelly said out loud.
As a movie production assistant, it was her job to scout locations. This particular one had a rustic magical feel to it…just what the director had in mind. Derek, her boyfriend of 7 years had told her about the place.
Kelly walked towards the cottage…strange sounds all about… somewhat scared she looked around as she tried to open the creaky door…her heart jumped as the wheel outside started to turn slowly…
Quickly she stepped into the cottage trembling…Kelly could not believe her eyes as she entered the room…thousands of red roses, her favorite, everywhere…
Derek in the middle…down on one knee with a diamond ring sparkling.
MAGIC LIVED HERE ONCE- A POEM
Magic lived here once
Memories of a life lived
In love peace and
Trees echoing laughter
As boys ran down the creeks
While girls sat quietly sipping tea
With ragged eye red haired dolls
Mama cooking by the stove
Father plowing hard at work
As kitty purrs soft by grandma’s tired legs
Laughter was felt in these farmlands
Very many years ago
A family abiding peacefully
Till tragedy struck
The war reached these parts
Striping the tree
Lands and inhabitants bare
Leaving nothing but heavy stones
Mounted one upon another
A reminder of many things
