Leaving Home #artist #phone #microfiction


b and w history and phone

He knew I’d find the message…

The phone had become my solace after my husband died.

Listening in to the daily chatter about town  kept the tears away.

I was devastated, ” gone without a final goodbye.?”

Leaving the menorah a precious gift from his grandfather meant he had given up his faith.

“What are you going to follow?

What will be your guiding light?

Certainly you must have taken something with you on this journey.”

Then I noticed his plain brown box of paints,  an easel, and a silly felt hat were gone.

At least he’d outgrown the crayons…

Join the fun at Rochelle’s and  Friday Fictioners . This was a great picture prompt.

Thank you for visiting Moondustwriter. One of the many exciting things I've had the honor of doing is writing with an E. African team that is developing elementary curriculum for African children. As a writer, it is a thrill to help children (on all continents) who want to learn. 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.

  1. I liked your story. Not sure what to think. I will think a little supernatural, I think. Damn, I wish I’d thought to change the photo to B & W… nice one.
    p.s. loved that thought of staving off loneliness listening in on the party line.

  3. these lines:

    “What are you going to follow?

    What will be your guiding light?

    Certainly you must have taken something with you on this journey.”

    i was wondering why they were on separate lines instead of like a paragraph. are they different speakers?

    well done.
