Two Leaves

It’s a fun day to participate in Vivian Kirkfield’s 50 Precious Words contest. There’s loads of time for you to make your own entry.

Here’s my own 50-word entry:

Crinkled Brown clung, too afraid to fall.

“You could leap.” Green said.

“I’m afraid.”

“If you fly….” she suggested.

“…you will grow!” said Brown, soaring.
