“Just living,” she frowned at the wrinkles etching her face. “There’s no time left,” he drew a circle in the sand. Both had seen so many sunsets they seemed to watch this one as if it were their last. “You have to put in the numbers,” a little boy ran up with a stick.

I Smell A Rat #newcago #horticulture #pandemic #flashfiction #reading

  New Cago was not a very cultured metropolis before the epi & pan demic. Kids were shoving things up their noses or in their veins.

Stay Home Please Co-Vid Kills #coronavirus #covid19 #takethiseriously

  We had to go out yesterday to get some basic food needs. I was aghast. People are out with no protection. No gloves (gardening gloves, winter gloves work) and no masks. The Surgeon General demonstrated how to make a mask from a T-shirt. You put yourself and others at risk this way. Assume youContinue reading “Stay Home Please Co-Vid Kills #coronavirus #covid19 #takethiseriously”

Grief #atozchallenge #elderly #haiku #photography

final song head fell against the pillow flowers wept *** I don’t need to explain what grief is in a time when the flowers in so many gardens are weeping.
