Another story in 100 words: Regeneration

For her fifth birthday she got a corner of the garden, a little bed of her very own. She emptied a seed-packet on the glistening earth and rushed out next morning, expecting to see a crop of beautiful flowers.

Hopes dashed, she’d just discovered nature’s way – left to time, all things come to fruition.

Now older, seasoned, she wonders at toddler-tantrums from so-called grown-ups still screaming for the-moon-on-a-stick – her tomorrow, theirs today?

Impatient again, she watches seeds of protest shoot across her shining screen and rushes out to a blossoming of banners and bright futures planted afresh in youthful minds.

  1. Passion and protest. We used to think it was the domain of youth. I feel just as rebellious now as ever I did. Our hopes are with the kids. I believe they have the ideals and energy! There is hope.

  2. I like the optimism!
    I actually remember that feeling, planting seeds and watching each day in disappointment for something to grow. Children are even more impatient than adults…or maybe just less world-weary. (K)
