Microfiction Monday


Closing her eyes
and opening her mind
to the ether.
So many souls to choose from,
she wanted her first child
to match her soul for eternity.

This is a Microfiction Monday as hosted my Susan at Stony River.

They always inevitably do, no matter how different they might seem...

Caty said...

lovely thoughts in so few words...

SouthLakesMom said...

What Mona said is true -- God has a way of matching those souls to our own...

Very nice MFM!

Mama Badger said...

I'm glad we don't actually get to choose. I'd never have done as well if I'd try to do it myself.

izzy said...

Peggy said...

Nicely done, liked it a lot!

choosing is difficult... good one

sylviamorice said...

Oh, I do like this one! What mother wouldn't want her child to match soul-wise with her. Great job!

BECKY said...

I would be terrified to choose! How could I decide on which one?!
Very intriguing take!!

Sylvia K said...

A great one for the day and I do think we are soul-matched with our children! Have a fun week!

Pat said...

Oh, wouldn't that be nice--to be able to choose your own child before (s)he is born to you?!

On second thought...maybe not.

Me said...

160 was getting a little too wordy for you, was it? ;)

Seriously, though...this was quite lovely. But my mind goes along a similar line to some other comments, and the Stones said it best: You can't always get what you want...but you get what you need! :)

MM...
You have been very faithful to the Friday Funfest. The least I can do is to return the kindness.
You'll see me Sunday...

BTW....Your story was quite moving!

Ellie said...

What a beautiful poem, and such powerful imagery. I can't decide if I would like to choose or not!

PattiKen said...

Lovely poem and it perfectly matches the image. Personally, I'm glad I got the luck of the draw. I couldn't have done better.

Shadow said...

mystical beauty!

Susan at Stony River said...

Oh I love this!
How often do we dream about how our kids might or will turn out -- and they almost never do, for better and for worse, in surprising ways!
It was a really odd picture this week but I like what you did with it.

Marla said...

Oh my gosh, I love this!

Felicitas said...

Beautiful! I think we do choose one another.
