Microfiction Monday #22

          http://www.stonyriver.ie/ hosts a weekly prompt to be written in 140 characaters or less.




THIS IS THIS WEEK'S PHOTO PROMPT




A child's waiting 
discounted
  Distractions
like a funny carved chair
...enough to amuse her.
But the heart doesn't wait
it longs for

  11. Suz...This speaks to the child in us all...it's as much about our "adult" distractions, desires, and longings as it is about a child's.... Very touching!

  12. Oh, and I forgot to say that I love the ending... "...it longs for"..... what is left unsaid speaks volumes.
