Flash 55-Just Talking

Old maple stands against a melon sky. Another year, whirligigs ready, leaves waiting for release; no one expects that you can last through the next winter. I spent the last ten years talking to you and shielding you from harm. It’s personal now. Age affects us all. How can we weather the coming storms together?

Have a story to tell? If you can tell it in 55 words--make certain you tell the g-man! It is after all, Flash Friday! Have a great weekend all!

Raising them from 'babies' is rewarding. My 55 celebrated Earth Day as well.

I used to hate those whirlygigs at our old house surrounded by maples, ground littered with whirlygigs. Somehow, you've managed to make me miss them in just a few words. I love the idea of talking to a tree, and I love..."no one expects you can last through the next winter."

Nice Earth Day flash.

...a melon sky...

I can see it when you write growth and life with such clarity.

Beautiful.
