Spirits Whisper: Microfiction Monday

Posted on Dec 6, 2010 by Lisa Ricard Claro   26 Comments | Posted in microfiction

Thanks for dropping by for another Microfiction Monday.  If you have yet to shoot over to Susan at Stony River who hosts this challenge, please do.  She always has a terrific story, and there are many other blogs to visit for more tales to match the photo. I am always blown away by the creativity and the different views.  Here are my two 140 character offerings to go along with this week’s picture:

Whispers…
Of that which was, but is no more; 
alive in naught but ancient lore. 
Sense me in the wind’s refrain. 
I didn’t die; 
my soul remains.
* * * * * * * * * *
“Tis the perfect spot,” he mused, 
“to lie down for an afternoon snooze.” 
He never awoke, never did rise; 
‘twas quite the dirt nap surprise!

Thanks for visiting. Please check back again soon.  In the meantime, I wish you a wonderful Monday to begin your week.

Til next time –
Lisa

P.S.  18 shopping days until Christmas!
