peace

                                

                                      

August 17, 2017 prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less) write a story that heals America. Difficult and idealistic, I know. Think about building bonds of trust or stories of friendship. It could be a positive story about America. Bonus points for hugging a cat.


The air reeks of disgust. 

The news on the cell-phones beep of minute-by-minute details of macabre killings. 

The thumping of the chests of the claims of responsibility of the heinous crime is obvious 

and no prize for guessing.

Old Samuel coming out of the wigwam raises his crow-feet gaze at the sky and throws his 

hands up.

Doris’s purr echoes helplessness.

“The unseen roots of the Water Hemlock planted in distant lands creep to tangle the 

hand that waters it”, sighs the silver-head wisdom.

“Any nation to be great has to plant peace in its back-yard “.


                  Satyamev Jayate. Amen.
