Renewed Resolve: A Micro-fiction Monday Post

17 months passed
since stepping
into dark confines
beyond cellar door

Vision adjusts
yielding truth:

empty barrels

stark reminder
of life once led

Wonderful, Polly! ~~ You remind me of a life once led! Here goes, I'll try to be short (may exceed 140 characters).

When I was a teenage college dropout I had a buddy, roommate to be, who at the time was living with his uncle.

The uncle made his own wine, red, and kept it in barrels in his basement. When we were 'on the town' we would bring along a couple quarts of wine filled from one of his barrels.

We generally mixed it with Seven Up and never did get drunk.

Excellently deep words.

Glad those barrels are empty, Polly...

This is a great beginning to a story about the dangers of living the high life! Such a disappointment for the person--empty barrels.

Brilliant, and perfect for the photo.

Nice to be out of that musty cellar. Into the invigorating sunlight!

Economically written but powerful and thought provoking.

For me, that perfectly describes the nature of change. Dark and scary at first, clarity and perspective with time.
