Microfiction Muses #12 and #13





In the middle of her climb 
up the tree of life 
Meg was frustrated to suddenly realize 
more living was needed 
to reach her full vantage point
(140)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Gramps barely tolerates the child
He remains quite miffed
about the love affair
between his grandbaby and that
low life scoundrel,
Speed Racer
(140)



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Micro-fiction Muse involves writing a very short story (140 characters max-including spaces) based upon a photo prompt. I make it my goal to always use140 characters exactly. Diane Estrella is our host for this weekly meme. Please be sure to visit her blog for complete rules and to visit other participants.

I love it "more living was needed to reach her full vantage point". There is so much truth in that statement!

You are on fire!!!!!! Love them both and needed that laugh this morning. :O)

Sometimes the climb is only half of it.

That first one is wonderful...and so true! Excellent MM.

I like your take on gramps. We grandparents sometimes wish we could protect our grandchildren more than is possible! Even when grandkids get big, they are still our grandbabies.

You are soooo good at this!

Still trying to reach that vantage point myself.

Loved 'em both. Speed Racer is such a scamp.
