Thursday 3/8/10 - "QUESTIONS OF THE HEART"



FLASH FICTION FRIDAY 55


"QUESTIONS OF THE HEART"


Her playmates had chanted out the letters, "M-A-R-R-I-A-G-E", followed by, "first comes love, then comes marriage, here comes Mary with a baby carriage".

Sixteen's first love and petals went flying, "He loves me, he loves me not".


IV lines lay across her wrinkled hand.

He'd been gone ten years.
Would she be with him soon?

Hey, this is a good "55", PG! The progression of time. Hmmmmmmm.

Yes...sad, but not really, just that we ALL dislike admitting our frailty.

Have you ever heard the song by Kathy Mattea "Where've You Been?"

I guess your post just reminded me of that song.

Bittersweet is human love. And well worth the price of admission.
