Microfiction Monday


It's Microfiction Monday over at stony river. We are invited to write a short, short story of 140 characters or less (including spacing and punctuation) based on the above picture.

Dancing awake in the sun's path, her angel girl would create moments of wonder with each step. Her mama held Nature’s fellowship that day.

Happy Monday everyone!

Joanne said...

Great thoughts. I would just love to take a long walk on a path as serene as that ...

Very sweet. Love your fall colors on here, too! :)

When I think of mine and yours they could not be any further away from each other. I really appreciate this writing exercise and all the variations. Beautiful poetry you've made. :O)

Very nice MF. It brought me back to the hikes we used to take with our children when they were young, traipsing through the woods for the sheer joy of it. Thanks!

Kim said...

Really beautiful Kelly. Hope you had a good weekend (meaning had at least a few moments to your self:).

T Rex Mom said...

Beautiful, just beautiful. The photo really makes me feel like fall is really here - as if the wind and chilly temperatures did not already.

Caroline said...

This is beautiful Kelly...you have such a gift with words.

Michael G-G said...

You capture the beauty of the picture perfectly.

Have a great week.

There is such beauty in a child's dance and you captured it so well.

Lovely Kelly. You draw the reader in with those few words and leave them enthralled with the wonder of Nature!

You always manage to come up with something spot on. Loved this. :)

As a fellow mom to a little girl (x2), I love where you went with this. Very sweet.

Who said miracles had to be spectacular? Nice one!

Julie said...

Pooch said...

Beautifully stated relationship of "angel girl" and her "mama" in such contrast to mine.

Nature walks - beautiful!

Susan Fobes said...

Kelly, you make every word count, and each sounds so beautiful! I think this picture spoke directly to the mothers in the group-don't you think?

This is beautiful :-)

Very sweet blog which made excellent reading.

Beautiful interpretation of the picture. :)

Dan said...

There was no getting around it. Suzy would have to brave the lair of the leaf monster if she wanted to get home.

A slightly more macabre take on the photo. {*grin*}

The Write Girl said...

What a beautiful tale of mother and child...inspirational and lovely writing.

Randi said...

And I'll bet you weren't thinking of Jillian at all when you wrote this, huh? :) Beautiful perspective.

rachel... said...

That's lovely! I bet this is the type of thing that seems much easier than it really is. But you've succeeded beautifully!

Michelle said...

Oh that is beautiful. I love days like that - and I only wish we had more of them! :)

Monica said...

i love that she's creating the moments of wonder.

Hi Kelly,

Those are some beautiful words, they tell the whole story, it doesn't leave you thinking that there is more to come. Great perspective

While daughter creates wonders, the mother enjoys communion with nature. Most enjoyable.

Suz said...

Oh so many good ones and this was one of them

Gerri said...

Very cool. ;)
