Time to grow – Friday Fictioneers

Friday Fictioneers is a weekly group hosted by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields who chooses a photo prompt to inspire writers to produce a 100 word piece of flash fiction. Do use the link to her blog if you are interested in joining the group. It’s a great way to get involved in writing.

Time to grow

The metal glistened in the first rays of the morning sun. All was quiet and still. As she looked around a memory of her father came back to her.

He had, very gently, unwound the wire from the top of the fence and had fashioned it into a spiral to protect each sapling.

The trees had flourished. There was no other sign of life.

He had never mentioned barbed wire fencing. He made no reference to hostility or conflict. His focus was on new beginnings, on growth.

She remembered his actions. So long ago. But they enabled her to hope.
