Microfiction Monday

Susan at Stony River challenges bloggers every Monday with a linky party called,  Microfiction Monday.
She posts a picture and in 140 characters or less, you are to write a story or short poem based on the picture.   I have two stories and a poem to share, I hope you like them.


~My sweet Fifi, do you not like Italy?
It's not that, Antonio, it's this ocean...it's making me sick.

~Heeeey! what's your name? I'll bet you're a Virgo.  How about we take a dip later tonight? whata-ya say?
you, me, the moonlight...
(130 characters)


~Echoing waves awaken the spirits
as the moonlight so gently appears
troubled souls gather with hope
to wash away their faults and their fears

    "Echoing waves awaken the spirits
    as the moonlight so gently appears
    troubled souls gather with hope
    to wash away their faults and their fears"
