Friday Fictioneers!



What a lovely photo (© Claire Fuller) for this week’s Friday Fictioneers prompt!

Here is my untitled ‘complete story in one hundred words or less’:


Oh, for Pete’s sake – another funeral.

Another old friend gone, another new trip to take – to wherever the departed was being planted.

Maybe I won’t go this time, he thought.

But he did.

Strangers all in black, standing silently on the green among all the gray gray stones…

Memories coming back: who he used to be, and where, and with whom.

My mind, he thought, is like an open box full of open boxes; in every box a person or a moment or some item found somehow beautiful or meaningful.

Be my turn soon to close the box.
