Easing my way back into writing with mindfulness, introspection, and writing challenges.
awwww, Maggie :(
Oh Maggie. I'm so sorry. Hugs:)
This was fiction, but thank you for your emotional responses. Was trying to make a story out of summer.
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.
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.
Oh, how lovely and how sad. A beautiful story, Maggie.
I'm glad this was fiction :( Well done.
So glad this was fiction. Though I'm sorry for your losses as well.
Unique, startling take on the prompt!
Wow, this is so stark and so sad. But beautifully done all the same.
Thank you, Suzanne.
This invokes so many different feelings.
I didn't realize it would impact others so deeply.
So much emotion in so few words. Very powerful post.
Thank you very much.

Oh dear...that hit..... PS...! http://yepirategunn.weebly.com/2/post/2013/06/ligo-haibun-challenge-1406-2106.html
I love that this can be read as actual summer or a child named summer. Great job.
Thank you so much. I always admire your writing.
Sad beyond any tears...
So sad and poignant.
This hit me a little too close to home, and I had a little cry. Beautifully done.
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.
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?
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.
