Welcome friends...thanks for coming by. We're seeking beauty in all of creation... in our faith and our families; our art and our music; our crafts and kitchens, and even in our own backyard. We'll share a poem or a recipe, a picture or a memory; maybe a dream of how we wish our life could be. And though we acknowledge that the world can be harsh, we're keeping it pleasant in our little corner; endeavoring to keep the words from the Book of all Books: ...Whatsoever things are lovely; think on these things.

I so enjoy hearing from you...so leave me a comment; it'll make my day!

Microfiction Monday #69: Too late?


His note read, "Let's elope. Meet me under the old clock in front of the courthouse at 2:30 today." 
Now he waited anxiously beneath the clock. It was 2:33...

Microfiction Monday is hosted by Stony River; You look at the picture and try to write a little vignette for it in 140 characters or less. Lots of fun! http://www.stonyriver.ie/

You expressed the tension in so few words. (Our ideas were similar.)

Time certainly does not fly under such circumstances.
Lovely story.

She can hope the clock is fast! Clever interpretation of the prompt.

He's a rotter if he doesn't show!

I thought of something similar when I noticed the time...but went with the OCD in me that kicked in as I looked more and more at the picture. I hope your bride arrives in time!

Hope the town only has one clock! :)

Then again if she's worth the wait....

For crying out loud. If he can't wait three lousy minutes...I had to put on my make-up, ya know?
