…All That is Left #microfiction

Coming home is never what you expect especially after experiencing time travel


It seemed as if I had been gone a lifetime; it had been a mere two light years(give or take.) I knew the folks will be glad to see me. “Life will be the same,” I mused. “Caroline will lean over the fence smelling one of mom’s hybrid roses. I will have my arms covered in grease as I try to keep my Stude running.” She sure was a pain but I loved my Studebaker with the pristine blue paint job not a bit of rust on her…

…What had happened in those two lightyears I will never know. The only assurance my life had not been a dream was my Stude; she was buried in rock, mud, and who knows what else. “Look at the rust! Can this really be all that is left?” I shouted as raised my fist to the looming gray clouds.

A hearty thanks to Tess Kincaid who weekly prompts writers on her site Magpie Tales

Thank you for visiting Moondustwriter. In 2019, we started working with an E. African team developing elementary curriculum for African children. As a writer, it is a thrill to help children who want to learn. As a bio major and nurse, it is exciting to use my knowledge to encourage young minds to love science. I've been part of the blogging community for more than 10 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 - thanks for stopping by.
