50 Word Stories: Moonlit

Moonlit, she drifted over the cobbles like a dandelion seed in a gentle, midnight breeze, her skirts never once brushing the puddles. Cocooned in night, I watched that lost soul from the alley, time weighing on my heart. She sought me, desired me, but I still wasn’t ready to go.

  1. Dear Richard.

    I hope you are well. I am very much a newbie at this sort of thing so please forgive my ignorance.

    Sir, may I say you are a credit to readers and writers the world over. As always this post was a pleasure. Every time I read a 50 word story I think, ‘I really need to up my game’. They are a skill and genre in their own right-Excellent immersive scene setting, character definition, bigger world and picture, viewers emotion, and all in the blink of an eye. And of course, it makes the reader wish to read more by the same author.

    A perfect format for blogging. A perfect way for new readers to sample your delights and get involved. If you are not already, you should probably teach day classes or something similar.

    Looking forward to the next post.

    Kindest regards. S.

      1. It’s easy, before it reaches your ribs call out for someone to throw you a rope, even a branch will work, then it becomes a joint effort to extricate yourself. You need a very good friend to work with you on this, someone with strong upper strength.
