a brisk memory came upon the wings of the elderly lady,
she had once seen the brilliance of a country in all its glory,
at the cost of millions, her eyes watered from prickly tears –
a heart woven into two world wars and desperation for her family,
thoughts haunted her still, alone at night
I had a lunch break and decided to attempt a 55 word story. I am participating in dVerse MeetingTheBar: Getting Tight (in here). Today’s prompt was inspired by Brian. Here is your birthday present. Happy birthday Brian!! 🙂
I really enjoy being a part of dVerse, it has been a positive environment to challenge myself and be inspired by so many talented writers. I have had such struggles with attempting prompts in the past – to the point that I gave up trying.
Today I let my mind venture and I saw an image of an elderly woman. The words are the visual that played in my head though limited in word. It was much more elaborate in my mind. 😉
