Succinctly Yours


In this age of technology and online chats, it remains a special joy to plop into a comfy chair and visit a friend in person….

.
.

Sit awhile, dear one…
tell me what moves your heart and
what can make you cry.


Two souls with voices
mingled in both joy and tears,
meeting face to face.

Sit just a while…

With Susan at Microfiction Monday on a well-deserved break, Grandma’s Goulash generously invites us to Succinctly Yours, a meme that supplies a photo prompt and bids us tell a story around it in 140 characters or words. A further challenge is offered with a word prompt to work into the piece. Though I did not use today’s word, I offer this 140-character piece. Check out the link below for more fun writes…

So beautiful! I read and re-read, and thought of my Mama and Grandma. Miss them both so much. I use the term "dear one" when talking to my kids, and so that alone evokes emotions in me. Wonderful sentiment, beautifully worded.

Thanks for posting the BBF badge!
