Friday 11/20/09 - "CONTEMPLATION"

FLASH FICTION FRIDAY 55

"CONTEMPLATION"



Hours passed sitting alone, head bent, staring, asking, "Is it an in or an out?"

*
She was contemplating the fuzzy parachutes on the dandelion puff ball. How many would land to grow and how many float into oblivion?

She thought, "There must be more to life than sitting wondering if there is more to life." **

What a great thing to ponder. Really there is so many different answers behind that question. But the best thing that is she took some time just for herself so know matter what she pondered or what she was thinking it was her time and we all need that from time to time just to wipe the clouds away in our brains. Mine if four days late to posting but its up. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.
