A SIMPLE TELLING OF A SIMPLE TALE



CONSTRUCTION FINISHED
At the start the land was dusty, dry, void, a simple foundation not quite finished. Soon trucks of brick, wood and mortar arrived, He built his house. He landscaped it, with comedy, irreverence, and a few recipes. Hands on hips, dusk illuminating him, he takes one look back and thinks, “Yea G, time to go.”

Linked to Mr. Know it all and his final day of hosting the 55 word prose Friday. A day often missed but rarely forgotten about by TWM. Be Well, G, face harmony as your destiny. Peace.

CALL IT SMART ASS LOVE




MR. KNOW IT ALL WILL YOU MARRY ME?
I little older, a lot less world weary, never afraid to try a new thing, cooks food fit for a king and is good at everything from telling a tale to refusing to fail. On my life he was a little younger, a bit less hairy I would not hesitate to make him my wife.

  2. A fine tribute to the G-man ~ The metaphor of the finished construction is apt ~

    Hope you are well Mark ~

    Thanks for the nods my brother, you have inspired me more than you know.
    It's been an honor to be friends with "The Voice Of Our Generation".

  10. I never participated in the 55 word challenge, but enjoyed reading many such stories from those of you who did.

  11. Light and airy, Mark, and with a lot of humor. I don't know Mr. G. but doubt if I would want to marry him. LOL.
