Far away from the tree #FridayFictioneers

Posted by


They chopped and slivered every magnificent tree that their eyes fell upon. The insects danced and feasted around the shavings.

´What a fall´, they lamented.

Far away from the tree, the tree spirits reincarnated in a new city. Rising skyscrapers, homes, schools, hospitals and somebody´s paraphernalia.

Death is a hoax.

(Word Count: 51)

Inspired by one of Rumi´s sayings – “Don’t grieve. Anything you lose comes round in another form.”

For this week´s Friday Fictioneers challenge hosted by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. The fun challenge is to write a short story of 100 words based on the photo prompt. This week´s photo prompt is provided by Rochelle Wisoff. Anyone can participate! 



    1. Hi Susan! Thank you for sharing your thoughts! You´re right! Death per se is a reality But again, what falls shalt rise again albeit in another form..:) Life and Death are two sides of the same coin. At least, that´s my conviction! Keep reading and Cheers!


    1. Hi Keith! You know, I was so expecting this comment 🙂 That´s surely a question to ponder upon given our global climate change crisis. But, I veered away from giving too many connotations to the tiny tale. This one can be seen with a philosophical (and even supernatural) lens. Glad you liked the story and keep reading and sharing your thoughts. Cheers! 🙂
