Friday Fictioneers is a weekly blog link-up. The Challenge – write a one hundred word (plus or minus) story with a beginning, middle, and end inspired by the picture. The Key – make every word count.
The picture is worth a thousand words. These are another one hundred.
The field fallowed.
The silo stood majestic
It took the windows.
Then it took the roof.
Neighbors and more pleaded to come
With hammer and nail to repair the damage.
Damage was, though, yet another revolution to the beauty.
The beauty was in the drought and decay.
New aesthetics emerged from the formerly functional,
Though functional preserved.
The silo would be restored.
But if the field never flowers again?
But if the sky never cries again?
Would it be that the field failed or the sky dried.
But, no, it was the silo who fell.
