Simply Sunday - Simply Memes in June


For Sunday Whirl and Magpie Tales:
Sunday Whirl words: crawl stain bluff shadows corona trembled vessels nail brush willow stones mud
The stained aged papers sat there, in the shadows of the old wall of mud and stones. They could see the grand old willow through the window and watched it, wondering why it wept so. They trembled in the air that blew occasionally hoping the nails that held them secure would not give up on them – after all, they had a close brush with death by wind before.  As they quietly rustled in the gentle wind and spoke volumes with each rustle, they heard a familiar but unwanted sound – it was coming from the direction of where the lady of the house had just stacked the vessels she had got inside. It was the sound of their old enemy – the bookworm – not the human kind but the one that had destroyed their family until only they remained – sole survivors of the notes of a writer long gone. As they watched him crawl towards them, the sunlight shone on the stainless steel vessels, lending the humble bookworm a royal corona. They rustled a little louder in fear and watched as the bookworm stopped mid-crawl, startled by the sudden noise. It was the rustling – they realized – scaring him – and trembled some more and watched him pause yet again – would he call their bluff? Would he know it was fear from their side or could they scare him off?  And now they hoped, they prayed for a bigger gust of wind, and prayed, yet again, that the nails would endure.

The costumed actor at the Faire & I watched, wanting but unable (ah,motion sickness) – yet glad to appreciate the joy contained in the ride.

  1. You're right, young people do find rides like this joyful and, even if we don't want to participate ourselves, we should be happy for them.
