A Story in 100 Words or Less. This is the Photo Prompt.
My girl. I can hardly imagine the thought.
But here she is.
Giggling. Reaching out to touch the sprays of water.
Dark Eyes filled with diamonds. Closely cropped raven hair.
New Clothes. First Time in Shoes.
China is losing a beauty.
We promise to keep her healthy and safe.
I pray she will be happy.
But we are taking her far from everything she knows.
A tug on my dress. As soft as a whisper.
She points and then shapes her hands into the lotus.
Yes, my girl. My daughter. Hua. Flower!
Thank you Rochelle Wisoff-Fields and your Friday Fictioneers! What a Fun break to sit for a moment and let my heart sing.
Breathing in the Air is a Good Thing. Filled with a Hint of Magic. 🙂
