Stormy 55


Standing taller than those around her,
She sways in the breeze
Waiting for the storm to pass.

“Heavy winds and rain are forecast,”
the weatherman says.

Quietly following the path she has chosen,
She bends, allowing wind to blow through her red hair
and pass her by.

If only people were this easy to ignore.

------------------------
Happy Friday to all - play along with G-Man and try your hand at fiction in exactly 55 words. 
Just remember - fiction is often VERY close to the truth...

Monkey Man said...

Yes, Indeed. Many fictions are based on the truth. Bend but don't let the "wind" break you.

So true. People can indeed be the hardest to ignore.
