Microfiction Monday


I love Microfiction Monday!  It shows how writers go all different directions with the same photo.  It's also brief, so we can 'get in and get out' quickly and move on to other things that demand our attention!  Thanks Susan at Stony River, again for hosting!




Remember when we lads guarded this bridge against Jerry?

You didn’t let girls go either.

You wouldn’t give us a kiss.

You were four years old!


Like Susan, I am acutely aware of the passage of time -- especially for the 'greatest generation' -- those who stood up to tyranny and evil.

My father is of that generation...and still going strong at 90. Nice touch!

Your story is wonderful! I believe those who have made a stand and fought or were sentinel are our honored guests here. You showed how everyone is affected by influential adult acts like war.

A 'too' bridge is like a jaberwock with an Eeyore style 'too bad' and the question of, "Did she mean, 'to bridge'?" Well I did and I didn't.
I think 'bridges' and 'bridging' was key in my reflection, and 'too' or the lack there of was my rhetoric. Have a great week!

Oh to be young again - great take on the picture. (I was going to say 'young and foolish' but the 'foolish' has remained;-/)

We often forget all of the living people have done, never remembering they were young once.
