Baby (inanition drabble)

Posted on: April 24, 2008

The scene wasn’t morbid but neither was it peaceful. A life ended before it had begun. She ran her finger across the sepia edges, wondered about the wreathed flowers of light.

It’s as if the ivy grew naturally from the floorboards, slowly creeping up the bassinet over time. The generic “baby” offerings give the photograph a melancholy air. His name should be written across the flowers, his name should be nestled among the wreaths.

She slides the picture back into the book and returns it to the table. Let this be someone else’s discovery, let someone else take him home.

i think this is a spectacular (and brave!) idea. i’ve never played with feeds before, but for you, hell yes. have just set up my first feed, for this blog. it’s gorgeous, and so are you.

You’re so lovely, thank you. It’s not so brave since only you guys and my sister will ever be looking over here. But I hope it will keep being fun. If it starts to feel like a chore I’m going to stick to my fandom world. :-)

I really love this. It’s got such a light touch … and a sure hand. Very nice!

Thank you! I have a lot to learn about how to put a story together, but I feel like writing drabbles has helped to make me focus on the words more. Eventually I’ll be able to tackle plot and character development.
