I missed last week’s Friday Fictioneers. Seems that even when I have nothing to do, I am totally busy!
But I’m back and can’t wait to read everyone else’s stories based on this wonderful prompt from Madison Woods.
If you’d like to join in, you should definitely do so! Go here to find the link and the other great stories from all of the writers.
Here’s the prompt and my story:
If these walls could talk
They would speak of love
Of the cry of a new born baby
Of the cry of those mourning
They would speak of children’s laughter
They would speak of horses’ whinnies
And the lowing of cattle
They would speak of long nights
And longer days
They would tell the story of a family
One that worked hard to make a life here
Where the arid plain did not welcome them
Where the sun beat down upon them mercilessly
They would speak of life
