A Golden Day

Let us put away our cares, just for a day. For a golden moment we’ll forget our tasks and our worries. We’ll visit the meadow by the stream and pick honeyed blossoms for our hair. O’er the hills we’ll stroll, wildwood whispers drawing us close. A speckled fawn, a rose-white apple tree, both nestled among the firs. We linger until the evening mist guides us back home, wholesome and happy, having spent the day with earth’s energy. 

Margot re-read the words she’d written and stared longingly out the window, listening to the rain drops conversing with her window pane.


I wrote this in response to Charli Mill’s April 22, 2021 Flash Fiction Challenge. In 99 words (no more, no less) we were write a story about earthing. And as always, we were to go where the prompt led us.

  1. Absolutely lovely. I could tell the sweet and flowery prose was not your usual style of writing but I knew it would lead me somewhere …down the garden paths of Eloquently Kate! Thank you 💚
