Every Tuesday, my friend, Kat Myrman chooses a photo and puts out a challenge to write a story using 140 characters or less, hence the title #TwitteringTales. I thought it would be fun to come up with a few possible scenarios. Think of them as musings from a coffee shop. Below is this week’s photo prompt.
Coffee or Not?
The usual, please.
Must relax. Calm down.
New boss comes today.
Yikes! He’s here already!
On second thought, maybe coffee’s not the best…
A Place of Remembrance
My favorite place! I remember how we laughed, talked and cried together.
Oh, how I miss you, my beloved friend. Now I’m alone, wondering why.
Blender whirring, coffee brewing, new flavors.
Baristas rushing. Smiling at customers both crabby and kind.
Her first job. She loved it all!
For my last one I take a scene from my life using haiku. Years ago these ladies and I attended the same church, seeing each other twice a week. [bctt tweet=”Things changed and God moved us around to different churches. ” username=”GaylWright”]Now we rarely see each other, but we try to meet every month to make sure we keep in touch. We’ve lost one, but she’s not forgotten. What a blessing to have such faithful friends who are there for each other!
Five friends talk amidst
Aromas of fresh coffee
Missing one who died
Each month gathering
Sharing joys and trials here
Sisters joined by God
A friend loves at all times,
and a brother is born for a time of adversity.
