  2. This was fiction, but thank you for your emotional responses. Was trying to make a story out of summer.

  3. Geez! Glad this was fiction but, just the same, quite the tragic take on the prompt. How sad to lose a baby. Your writing has to be excellent to evoke such sorrow for a fictional character. Well done.

    1. Thank you, Tom. Was trying to write about hazy, hot and humid last night numerous times and gave up. Woke up today with this. I have known miscarriage and that topic came up yesterday in another group. Must have been on my mind somewhere.

    1. Thank you, but sorry for the tears. The photo is actually a beautiful ceremony given by a town for an abandoned baby found too late. I do believe these tiny souls can feel love even if not during life in or out of the womb.

  17. Another one to pull at our heartstrings! Nice writing. I felt pulled into it, especially with the sad picture. Was the picture from real life experience?

    1. The photo is not from my life experience but from a funeral a town gave to a "found" abandoned baby. It was really beautiful how they honored the baby and gave him a name.
