Hidden in the Garden #flashfiction


There they were peeking out from under the green foliage

red against the green so distinct

a little worn but they reminded me of my youth ( laying things here and there)

then your smile joined mine for a moment

your white hair and wrinkles were no disguise for the young heart hidden in the garden

Once again ~ Flash Fiction in 55 words – always a challenge no kinder host will you find in G-Man!

 

For those of you who regularly visit my site please forgive me for being remiss on my blogsite. I am the throws of publishing and along with that am part of the Kindle Book Review team oh and am gathering speed for my thesis so I am swamped to say the least….

Thanks to Rachel Cowen for the photo of the Red Slippers http://www.flickr.com/photos/curlsdiva/6115881833/

  2. Hmm too cryptic ??? I saw a pair of red slippers working away in the garden today and then I made eye contact with the dearest face. The eyes seemed to match the slippers in joy at working in the garden on a sunny day ( we live in California so we are still gardening)

  3. Ohhhh, what a wonderful 55. I’m headed off to India Dec 1st for a four month stay, then five days in Korea on my return, after which I have to find a new place to live. All that is left of my belongings ( I really tried to down size ) are in storage.

    Your header is gorgeous…could be Montara or somewhere near my Pacifica coast.
