I decided to see what was going on over at the Carrot Ranch. It has been a long while since I have visited with my friend Charli at her literary community. But of course, I immediately see a flash fiction challenge I cannot resist and the deadline is tomorrow!
I say to myself, "Oh joy, I work lunch and dinner tomorrow which means I must write to the prompt tonight!" I had to, I already had a picture story in my mind's eye.
Carrot Ranch November 2, 2017 Prompt
In 99 words (no more, no less) write a story about a chair on a porch. Why is it there, and what might it mean? Think about using it as a prop or the main thrust of your story.
Serenity Steeple Chase©Ruth Cox
In the dark of night while sitting alone on the front porch in an old rocking lawn chair I find I feel serenity. I need only look to the sky; chase the steeple with mine eyes.
Mesmerized by the sight of the light, I am mindful of the moment.
At the steeple of peace I stare as I rock to and fro in my chair. Back and forth, and once again.
I pause, listen to the nothingness in the still of the night.
Silence steals my serenity.
Come Sunday morning this girl's going to church!
