Weekly writing challenge, hosted by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. This week’s photo is copyright to the hostess. The challenge is to write a 100-word fiction, based on the photograph. I enjoy constructive criticism so kindly (please) let me know what you think of this attempt.
Everything in its place, expectant, waiting, begging disruption. The heart of the home in a corner of possible complexity. The lighted oil lamps an invitation.
Wedged heart with a view to a closed community. Devoid of movement. From this corner remotely controlling the virtuality of existence. Suspended activity, marking time.
Traces of being to be realised yet again within parenthesis of routine, the cue withheld. The shadows hold promise of past presences, memories accentuate absence.
Silence, like dust, collects on the table. Crumbs from the past feed nobody, nourishment becomes a wish. Patience becomes burden. Echoes will become mute.
