Microstory challenge #2

Since the idea seems to please, I will make this a regular feature as long as there’s interest. This second challenge is to write a story in one, or if you want to be verbose, two sentences, inspired by the painting,’Falling Stars’ by Mihály Zichy.

Mihály_Zichy_Falling_StarsYou can post your story in the comments box below and leave a link to your blog so that other readers can visit. You can post your story on your blog and leave a link so we can all visit. Either way, it helps us all to get to know one another. I might pick a favourite, and insist that everybody visits the winner’s blog. Then again, I might chicken out, so don’t count on it.

Do pass the word along though. The more participants, the more interesting the challenge.

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.

  1. Extended once, sweet glory, brilliant glows of light, seraphiming in the sea of sky, suspended on the cusp of glistening dark, glimmering, twice extended in dreadful repose, and then, as if tis’ that recurring dream that will never be revealed, lost.

  2. Everything has a critical mass, even religion, and the day that the number of believers fell below that point was called forever after Atheism Day. In the heavens there was much wailing and gnashing of teeth as the gods teetered and then fell to earth, burning up like falling stars that were lost against the fireworks in the sky.
