Microfiction Monday #56: New Beginnings


After years of hiding
behind murky memories
& within distant dreamscapes
She, the inner child,
decided it was time for her
to forge her own path.

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


This is a fun, weekly meme hosted by Susan over at Stony River.
She provides the photo prompt and we provide the "micro-fiction"
which is limited to 140 characters total.

The inner child, very good, everyone has one but many of us don't let her out to play.

The inner child not only finds a voice but finds her feet too! Beautiful little micro!

Go for it, Inner Child!

The forest in literature is often a place of transformation. Augustine was in the garden when the voice said 'take up and read'. It's a place for fairy tales and dumped bodies, too. I like forests.

Madeleine said...

Good for her! Very profound. I love it :O)

"THE" one and only inner child- are you sure ? Hee-Hee, impish things those inner children... Thanks!

Y'know, this sounds like my little sister. She lived with my mom for a long time, always the one of us that was quiet, well behaved, almost in the shadows. One day, she just decided it was time to be a grown up, moved out and got a job, and flourished into a witty, wonderful woman.



Just as an FYI: I moved my blog. I'd love it if you'd come follow me! I'm now at Turtle Droppings!

Your flash tale doth inspire! I'm going to make this an Inner Me Day, starting with ice cream for breakfast, because, hey, it couldn't hurt!

Oh, nice and what a great idea. Susan's daughter does make a prefect inner child image.

As soon as I saw the picture, I wondered what fabulous tale you were going to tell. You did not disappoint. Very introspective.

Freedom is hers today! :O)
