Friday Fictioneers-Ashes to Ashes

the-boat-and-miss-liberty

Ashes to ashes, dust to dust.

Sunlight shines like glitter on choppy water while gulls sound calls to their mates. Tabitha stands with little Andrew at the railing. He points to the urn she carries in her left hand.

“Is Daddy in there?”

“They all are, Baby.”

He gives her a pensive look and begins to cry. How does a mother explain the origin of dust from Ground Zero?

As the motor idles, Tabitha lifts the lid from the urn and places it on the deck.

“May I help Mommy?”

“Of course, Love.”

Together, they pour the contents into the bay and say a silent prayer.

It’s Time to Begin Isn’t It

Amazing interview tonight. Can’t wait to write the story. Gotta let it brew for a few days. Other stories coming to me, finally. Had an epiphany. Found my way back with a lick and a prayer, I did.

So enjoy a little Imagine Dragons. I’m NEVER changin’ who I am…… Never…..

So this is what you meant
When you said that you were spent
And now it’s time to build from the bottom of the pit
Right to the top
Don’t hold back
Packing my bags and giving the academy a rain check

I don’t ever want to let you down
I don’t ever want to leave this town
‘Cause after all
This city never sleeps at night

It’s time to begin, isn’t it?
I get a little bit bigger, but then I’ll admit
I’m just the same as I was
Now don’t you understand
I’m never changing who I am

So this is where you fell
And I am left to sell
The path to heaven runs through miles of clouded hell
Right to the top
Don’t look back
Turning to rags and giving the commodities a rain check

I don’t ever want to let you down
I don’t ever want to leave this town
‘Cause after all
This city never sleeps at night

It’s time to begin, isn’t it?
I get a little bit bigger, but then I’ll admit
I’m just the same as I was
Now don’t you understand
I’m never changing who I am

It’s time to begin, isn’t it?
I get a little bit bigger, but then I’ll admit
I’m just the same as I was
Now don’t you understand
I’m never changing who I am

This road never looked so lonely
This house doesn’t burn down slowly
To ashes, to ashes

It’s time to begin, isn’t it?
I get a little bit bigger, but then I’ll admit
I’m just the same as I was
Now don’t you understand
I’m never changing who I am

It’s time to begin, isn’t it?
I get a little bit bigger, but then I’ll admit
I’m just the same as I was
Now don’t you understand
I’m never changing who I am
