If You Leave Me Now… #flashfiction

A last embrace -The poignant end of life for an elderly couple this week .

We had been listening to oldies on our favorite radio station

I caught the glisten in his eyes and heard “I love you honey thanks…”

A long time ago I had almost left

He’d begged for another chance

he stopped drinking and became a totally different man

Earlier this week in the news: An elderly couple died in a final embrace this week after they had been in a fatal car accident.

Thanks to G-Man for the weekly challenge to write a story in 55 words.

they felt the impact but didnt see it

Thank you for visiting Moondustwriter. One of the many exciting things I've had the honor of doing is writing and publishing in multiple genres (including education) in E. African for E. Africa. As a writer, it is a thrill to write for children (on all continents) who want to learn. I've been part of the blogging community for more than 13 years. Some old timers may remember the award winning (2011 Twitter Shorty ) blog community - One Stop Poetry. I was the co-producer of that fast growing blog community. I am a published writer, poet, artist and photographer. I have written, as well as edited, for periodicals, radio, blogs and fellow writers. There are many facets to this moon - my joy is in meeting you!

    1. I started a nartue journal last year. Almost every day I write down observations of the weather here and in the country, I also note the birds I see and when my berries , my flowers grow and my vegetables might bear food.So I have been enthralled watching all Thd activity outside my kitchen window,. The robins and chickadees are feasting on those berries,Yesterday I saw a beautiful cinammon cat hiding behind the bushes. It was sitting on the ramps railing waiting to eat my birds,I knocked on The window thinking that would scare it away. Instead it turned to me with puzzled eyes as if asking what I wanted. So I told Thd cat to go away. Of course it could not hear me through Thd glass. It even seemed to tell me that as it slowly walked up The ramp to my front door. Having Nickel next to me I did not answer the door.Hours later I walked into The kitchen again only to spot something on the ramo’s railing. At first I thought it was that cat . But it was a bird, a large bird , about twenty to twenty five inches large perched in the exact place of where thr cat had been. I was so fascinated. After studying it I realized it was a hawk waiting for my birds. I did not move mesmerized. And then it flew away.Natures beautyViewedIn times of stillnesss


  3. I agree w G-Man…positive post, with emotions left over for the reader. Very sweet sometimes is death (I hear–but never from the dead!) Glad to read you here tonight.
    PEACE Cali-Girl!


  4. I needed to cpsmooe you one very small remark to be able to say thanks a lot again on the wonderful tricks you’ve featured in this case. It has been really strangely open-handed of people like you to make unhampered just what numerous people would’ve supplied as an electronic book to get some dough for themselves, most importantly considering the fact that you might well have done it if you wanted. These inspiring ideas also acted to become a great way to understand that some people have similar fervor similar to my very own to learn a whole lot more with regard to this issue. I am sure there are lots of more enjoyable periods in the future for folks who discover your blog.
