Mini Saga n.15 — Lunch in the Park

Lunch in the park

Lunch in the park, my bag is filled with fallen leaves.
I pick them one by one, and set them on the kitchen table. Six are green, four yellow.
By dinner time they are joined by two cherries, a few crumbs.
At breakfast they drown in a puddle of coffee.

Mini sagas are short, self-contained stories, of exactly 50 words. I’m using them as a way to practise storytelling. Sometimes inspired by a photograph, other times they are the inspiration for images, to complement the stories.

Mini Saga n.14 — The Landing

Foggy Night by Tania Metalli

It landed on a foggy night, somewhere in the suburbs. Its surface covered with intricate decorations, a message for us maybe. 
But we didn't understand.
Its inhabitants were out in no time, making sense of their surroundings. Making themselves at home.
That was the first. Soon there would be more.

Mini Saga n.13 — A Moss Heart

A Moss Heart by Tania Metalli

In spite of the appearance, the creature has a soft, green heart.  
As I reach over, I sense a little movement, a shiver, like a faint voice. Startled, I withdraw my hand and walk away.
When I am back the creature is still there. 
The pulse draws me toward it.
