It's raining, it's pouring...

Well I'm back for another installment of Microfiction Monday. It's #67 in fact, and Susan, over at Stony River challenges us every week to write a story in 140 characters or less (including spaces and puntuation)based on a picture she posts on her site.

I'm feeling a little under the weather (no pun intended) this evening, so I wasn't sure I would be able to post anything tonight. But when I'm in this chair, typing away, I perk up a little.   Here is this week's picture:


And here is my attempt:

We shared some good times my brother and me, on that old bridge after a cold winter rain, watching the fog tuck the river in for the night.
(140 characters-cutting it close I know...)

I really wanted to do a poem with this one, but I need to get some sleep. Maybe I'll try tomorrow. Anyway, I look forward to reading all of your thoughts but I'm going to wait until I'm feeling a little better.

PS: I didn't sleep to well last night (almost not at all in fact), but I feel loads better so I came back and did some poetry-I just couldn't stop myself because this picture just evoked such powerful feelings in me-did you feel it too? Anyway, here is my poem:

I like sun, but I also like rain,
It calms my soul and eases my brain.
The gentle hum on my windowpane,
Helps bring him back to me again.
(138 characters)

Thanks for your well wishes, and I am off to read more of your entries!

  8. your post was nice to read, I can just imagine the stories they share. It's also very poetic, kind of like a story and a poem wrapped in one.

    I hope you start to feel better soon.

  23. Sounds like fun, Susan. My sister and I used to watch airplanes land and take off at the airport. Now she watches ships coming in off Lake Erie.

    Your poem is nice, it is a lovely rhyming nine syllable liner.
