F is for Flash Fiction

PHOTO PROMPT © J Hardy Carroll

It doesn’t look like much, does it?

The emptiness has replaced the commotion and people have no reason to come around anymore. When chatter about ripping it down started up, I was tormented with thoughts of our home going down with it.

We almost just up and left but here we stand – you, me, the trees and this vacant structure.

It’s kind of beautiful.

Listen to me and listen to me good, Son; when you need to fly, you fly. But, patience? That will take you places. I may be a bird, but oh for the things I’ve seen.
