MINIATURE WRITING CHALLENGE #73 – Necessity

natuur_herfstbladeren

Time is wonderful. It helps us ease our pain, some bad memories and our heartache. They are still there, but as the days pass by, the sensation dulls. It’s nature’s way of dealing with them and let us continue with our day to day activities, without mourning. When my father passed away, it was like the world has ended. It made me feel vulnerable and has come face to face with my own mortality. That we all go in the end, no matter what age, how healthy or active we are, whatever our lifestyle. It also made me change my attitude, my belief, my priorities and my way of life. I live each day like it’s the last day on earth. I love with passion, give generously to people who needs them, as well as my time to people that matters, sort my priorities and enjoy life and what it offers.

Life carries on
Live each day like a last day
Love with passion

Panakot-Uwak – MINIATURE WRITING CHALLENGE #71

Panakot-Uwak – MINIATURE WRITING CHALLENGE #71

Panakot-Uwak used to be a bored scarecrow, with his old rag clothes and straw face and body. Birds poked his face, not scared of him at all and children threw some sticks and stones at him. That was before. Now he’s got an important job – being a spy. He reported for duty at the Scarecrow Intelligence Agency (SIA), his old clothes still wet. It has been raining over there, he said. He tried to sneak over to the farmhouse by crouching or leaning forward to get closer without being seen. It wasn’t easy. After all, he wasn’t expected to move about. He’s supposed to scare crows and other big birds. He was sent to this farm to get some evidence that the farm is also involved in other notorious activities. And so, he reported what he’s seen, heard, the comings and goings and he felt ever so important and useful.
