Friday 3/5/10 - "ON HER KNEES"




FLASH FICTION FRIDAY 55


"ON HER KNEES"


The city of pathos, loss, sadness stretched out before her.

Where boundaries once were placed and safe, now broken lives and homes remained.

She sat straight and staid by the flowing water, lost in thought, remembering the past now gone.

She heard prayers. On bended knee she joined the woman in the sky in supplication.


Prayer Girl

Love it PG. A city on its knees, but instead a lonely woman praying for her city. Blessings.
