Microstory Challenge #2: the winner is…

Mihály_Zichy_Falling_Stars

I wish I hadn’t said I’d pick a winner. If I like something, I like it and tend not to have degrees of likeness. However, I will say that I liked Bill’s offering because it seemed to me to fit the tone of the painting so well. I can’t get a link to his blog, but if he calls back with one, I’ll post it.
Edit: He did, and here it is http://www.engleson.ca

‘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.’

I liked Ashen’s (Course of Mirrors) because it is so concise, and I love the idea of soulmaking

‘So each story begins, with the fall – into the valley of soulmaking.’

And I like Laurie’s because it is so irreverent and it made me smile.

‘Just let her go Bernice, she’s nothing but a drama queen at the best of times.’

And bacause it’s my blog and because I like the painting, this is what I came up with.

The time comes for even stars to die, to fall from the firmament in a blaze of glory, while we watch in wonder and awe, and somewhere, someone makes a wish.

Thanks everybody who participated; there wasn’t one entry I didn’t think was a good one. I’ll post e new challenge tomorrow.
