Microfiction Monday #24 Prisoner


King Cole, I do indeed want to learn the masonry trade, but wouldn't it be better if I watched from the outside rather than from the inside?
(140)

Head bowed in sorrow, Callista prayed for release from this dungeon which soon would be in darkness. She wouldn't marry King Constantine.
(140)

Farewell to freedom
Sorrow grows with every brick
Alone in darkness
(73)

You are so good to always be able to come up with not just one, but two or three and they're all terrific! And these are the proof! Hope you have a great week, Pat!

I am always amazed!

Golly gosh, I am humbled and amazed. Not one, not two, but three great ones, spanning humor, pathos, and poetry.

Always a joy to read yours, Pat. have a great week.

Very different takes, but all excellent.

Wow, yes, three different points of view. If I tried that, I'd be arguing with me and myself.
Good work, Pat.

These were great Pat, Sounds as if Princess is in a bit of trouble.

I'm with Callista! That Constantine has a reputation!

I love seeing what you write for these every month. I love how for both of these, this is a punishment. I absolutely agree!

Pat,
I loved all three but the first was my favorite - too funny! Wry humor and I love it!

sylviamorice said...

I like them all, but I think the first is my favorite, as I seem drawn to tongue-in-cheek writing!

Have a great week. Cheers!

Mama Zen said...

Wow! These are all excellent!

I loved the first one. Very witty. Oh, but the third and second sent shivers. I agree with the others. You're great at this. So glad to have discovered you.

There are fates worse than death. Looks like this princess found one. Alas.

Lovely takes on the picture.

You are so creative to be able to come up with three! The first one had me laughing, but my favorite was the third.
