Microfiction Monday: It's a Bird's Life

Take One:

Two calling birds!
I said two calling birds, not pigeons.
Who sent the casting call to these guys anyway?


Take Two:

pigeon-gray sky
brushed chrome water
in a monochrome world
birdsong breaks though steel,
floats, dripping melodies to earth
Your turn to try writing a story based on the above picture! Go to Susan's Stony River blog for details on how to play. I can't wait to read what you have written.

If you like short-short stories, check out these for some winter reading:

Granny Sue;

Loved them both.
Two so different takes.
Funny and beautiful!
Have a nice New Years Eve!

Cheryl said...

Both are wonderful.

Granny Sue said...

Thank you :) I can see some edits that need to be made to the second one already, but that's what I get for dashing it off quickly.

Pat said...

First one made me laugh; second one--I'm in awe--fantastic! I love the pyramid poem, especially this: "birdsong breaks though steel,
floats, dripping melodies to earth."

Granny Sue said...

Thank you, Pat. Your comments made me smile :)

Granny Kate said...

I could hear the voice-over for that first one -- a good take on the picture, it made me laugh out loud.

The second one is beautiful! Two so very different ways to go with the picture.
