Microfiction Monday

Microfiction Monday occurs each week when Susan at Stony River gives us a photo or illustration prompt. Our task (and yours if you choose to join us) is to write a story in 140 characters or fewer.  No cheating -- the 140 count includes all punctuation and spaces. Once you've posted yours, go back to link to Susan's...

Here's this week's illustration:



My story:


She still wears a braided chain
 made of finest silver from the north of Spain,
a locket, that bears the name . . .

....... of someone very special obviously. Do tell!

sioux Roslawski said...

"...of the man that Brandy loved." I knew that song the instant I read your words.

I heard--just recently---that it was really about a girl named Bobbie (or some other male/female name) and they changed it to Brandy to make sure everyone knew it was about a girl.

Scott said...

ooohhhh, mystery, intrigue, what does the locket say? does it contain a photo? perhaps a momento?

Susan at Stony River said...

Wow, did that take me back! I love the connection you made there.

Speaking of sea stories, my word verification (I'm not making this up) is 'hydra'. Woo.
