Thanks for your incredible commitment Rochelle Wisoff-Fields! This week’s photo is provided by Roger Bultot. Despite this beautiful, atmospheric photo, I was stuck this week. I’ve used a brief portion of a short story I’ve been working on. It fit the scene. Honest, constructive feedback is always welcome.
A Solitary Woman
The woman stirred her coffee and gazed out the window at her garden.
“I should have cut back those irises weeks ago,” she said to no one.
Her dog glanced in her direction, ready and waiting. When she spoke to the window, he stayed put.
“I can’t believe it’s the end of October already…
Where have the weeks gone?
Hmm, Roosh, old boy!”
This was the cue: her gaze moving to him; her voice sliding up three octaves. The black lab mix got to his feet, tail wagging –– thump, thump, thump–– and came over to nuzzle her hand.
