Another Mostly #WordlessWednesday

The gull gods were happy to take our offerings . . .

Clouds and gulls

I liked the ellipse-shaped cloud bowl in this one. I believe I counted about two to three different gull species on the beach that Autumn day.

Mostly #WordlessWednesday

ice-cream-tasting-7-20-19flh.jpgSo, we attended an ice cream tasting over the last weekend. Want to know my favorites? What flavors seemed to be the crowd favorite(s)? That one you can’t see, top right, is rose-flavored.

What kind would you choose?

Yum!

Microfiction Sci-Fi: Mothers of Invention

Mothers of Invention

genres: sci-fi, microfiction

 

“Can you pass the egg?”

I scoot the sealed dish across the lab table.

biology-220005_1280“Just one more pinch, et voilà.” Evie shrugs out of her Neptune-blue glove. “Our little omelet. Not edible of course.”

“She’s as lovely as her mother.”

“Mothers, plural.” She winks back at me.

 

###THE END###

 

 

Note: I wrote this microfiction piece for a call for submissions under 50 words and in which each word had to be seven letters or fewer. Originally, there was no title. Being who I am, I chose the science fiction or speculative fiction route, plus I’ve added this working title. It was not successful in the fray of competition, but I had fun writing and tweaking it and thought someone in the Great Out-There might enjoy reading it. I hope that that someone has been you.

Thank you for stopping by. Come back soon!
