Microfiction #38

Susan, at hosts a weekly writing prompt

Using the below photo write using only 140 characters or less

I watched them make several calls and reach no one.
Their silhouetted forms,against the cafe window,
were as still as starving pups. 

Happy Fourth...Celebrate America!


  1. This is just absolutely fantastic!! An entire generation so "connected" and yet so insulated from reality, and from personal interaction and meaningful contact.

    And you nailed it in two sentences! Love it, Suz! Best thing I've read in months...

  2. Oh wow you made my weekend! Thanks Rick..and you nailed the reading of it...;)

  3. Wow, another amazing piece of microfiction, Suz. After reading your words I see those two girls as starving for male attention/affection as young girls tend to do, trying desperately to fulfill a need that can't be satiated by the opposite sex.

  4. I was just dropping in to wish you and yours the happiest Independence Day. May your day be full! May you enjoy laughter shared with family, great food shared with friends, fireworks to make you gasp, a lump in your throat at the anthem, and a full and grateful heart at all we have been given. Happy Fourth of July, my friend!

  5. suz, i loved your microfiction 140, it's as if they are in their own little world, eh?
    hope you have a fantastic day, my friend!

  6. Suz;

    Loved your Microfiction this week.
    Texting has it's own powers of hypnosis.
    Have a great evening!

  7. Loved this Suz, it is amazing that two people can be in the same room and act as if they are the only ones there.

  8. you are so good at writing- love the 135 characters to the image. and I love the zen quote you left at my blog post on my greenhouse.

  9. Your final simile is dynamic! So loaded with innuendo! Beautiful!

  10. So much said in so few words. You always amaze me with your microfictions, Suz.

    Have a lovely week x
