Old memories.....;;55 on Friday



Vidya Sury 28.10 (7)
  Seema, old and lonely lives in a huge mansion since  childhood.  Sitting in her library amongst multitudes of books she takes a book, 'Love is a many splendorous thing'.  A faded  red petal  falls in her lap." Oh God." Morning the maid opens the door.  Seema, with the petal in her hand, is no more.







Written , in response  to  Vidya Suri's  prompt on Write Tribe's 55 on Friday.

  2. A sad twist, but at least she died among the dear friends who probably entertained her life and kept her company.

  5. A mansion without loved ones is no place to live...The way you have used her lonely life and faded rose petal as parallels is simply beautiful Ushaji.

    2. Dieing in the company of your best friends...nothing like it. Hope she was not a loner and balanced life and books well.
