We’re still in waiting mode at the moment. The home study is done and has been submitted, so it’s just a matter of time. We’re starting to think about baby names at this point; pretty cool! 🙂
The reason for the title above is that I’m doing something different this post. I have a great deal of fun writing what are called “55 Stories”. These are extremely short stories (AKA, “flash fiction”) that consist of only 55 words — not counting the title. I haven’t written one in a while, but had some inspiration this morning. Hope you like it! (I put it in the “More” section, so just click on the link below.)
The silence between them wasnâ€™t an awkward silence,
full of pregnant pauses
and misunderstood mumbles.
It wasnâ€™t a companionable silence,
as when friends know nothing needs said.
Nor was it a seductive silence,
with furtive glances
and unspoken entendres.
It was a silence of sod
broken only by black umbrellas
and old priests.
