Microfiction Monday 6 Dec 2010

Welcome to another round of Microfiction Monday courtesy of Susan at Stony River. Each week Susan posts a new picture and invites us to write a story in 140 characters or less.

Today's picture:


Time robs the heart of grief
and leaches from the cluttered mind
memories of a fading past.
Cold stone,
standing tall,
Semper In Memoriam

  1. I like "memories of a fading past" -- fresh. (Usually, I read "fading memories" instead.)

  11. If we could only believe that time robs the heart of grief...dulls it, maybe, but I don't think it ever goes away.
