Microfiction Monday Fog

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 short story or short poem based on the picture. I have a story and a poem, hope you like them.

~Lovely vacation spot you brought me to Stell.  Oh Stanley, it's just a little morning fog, go set up our camping tent and stop complaining!

~Whilst your insecurities can cloud your mind like a dense fog,
your heart will lead you to her
go to her and lose yourself in her arms

  12. Hey Maria, so glad to see you stop by for a visit at LazyonLoblolly....The pet partay is fun, and I loved sharing mine, and yes I was able to take a trip to Las Vegas last weekend, I live in southeast Georgia, so it is always fun to take a trip, and you say you are only about 2hrs drive, from Vegas, it is an exciting place to visit...thanks for your comment, you are so appreciated....fun depiction of "micro monday".

  19. It's a good thing these two µ-fiction stories aren't a serial pair, Maria. After being treated like she did on setting up the tent, etc, she would never hold him on this outing.
