Every day he picks up the same passengers, drives the same route through the dirty city.
Every morning he stops his bus in front of her house at 6:15.
He thinks it would be nice to leave the city - move the kids out here. He waits 5 minutes. She never sees anyone get on.

55 word challenge

this is my first time at 55 word challenge...I think I interpreted the photo prompt a bit...oh well...I will do better next time


  1. I like suspense that builds within after the last line of reading. Quite visual!

  2. Oops, forgot, love that photo, very nice!

  3. A story well told in a few lines, full of yearning ... so vivid.

  4. oh you make me feel him... the same routine day by day by day.. and sometimes it just seems to make no sense... very cool storytelling in such few words

  5. I like this. Very cool that you did it in 55 words as well. Full of mystery and yearning as well as inside and outside. Thanks for posting this.

  6. oh i think you did great, love the image!!

  7. These few lines, pregnant with so many possibilites that could change lives...

  8. "A Spirit of Simplicity" has been included in the Sites To See for this week. Be assured that I hope this helps to point many new visitors in your direction.


  9. Love the picture and the way you have written!!

  10. nicely done and such great effect.

  11. Indeed sometimes we get so used to certain things that we take them for granted, But when even a single thing from that daily routine falls apart we really feel its absence.

  12. Sometimes the grass does look greener on the other side!

  13. I would like to know the story behind us. Sounds intriguing.

Deep peace of the shining stars to you.
Deep peace of the gentle night to you.
Moon and stars pour their healing light on you
