Source: Weekend Writing Prompt #101 – Charlatan
Objective: Write a poem or piece of prose in exactly 61 words.
Lola O’Neill stood, eyes shut, as the wind whipped, tugging her skirts.
The old woman was silent. Still, Lola waited. She willed the return of her world.
A gull cried overhead.
“Are you done?” she asked, “Am I home?”
The gull replied. She opened her eyes. The crone had taken her money, but Lola was no longer blind.
“Charlatan,” she screamed.
Keep on writing.
