Friday flash 55

Josue turns over on his mat just as the sun begins to rise. He gazes across the street at his home and sees a jumble of concrete, glass, toys, dishes, bodies. He thinks perhaps God has used a big spoon to mix it, like his momma mixes bread.

A tear rolls through the dust on his cheek to the earth below.

    Wow, nicely done. This brings reality to the tragedy. It’s sometimes easy to forget when we’re so far away.

    Gut-wrenching and a beautiful account of humanities meekness in the midst of natures raw power.

    Way to go Kathan. This is excellent! You just inspired me with your words.
