Microfiction Monday #50


It’s time for Micofiction Monday, where a picture is worth 140 characters or less! Here is this week’s picture, hosted by Susan at http://www.stonyriver.ie , and here is my interpretation of it:

Their home didn’t have a ‘widow’s walk’, so every sunset Rose sat at the water’s edge, waiting; Ron’s mistress, the sea, was unpredictable.

  1. You Canadians have taught me about widow’s walks this week!

    I did like this, Sylvia, particularly the idea that the sea was his mistress-and a potentially deadly one.

    Have a great week.

  2. I’ve often seen widow’s walks on our trips to different locations in the US, but nothing got me like the museum in Nova Scotia with it’s graphic descriptions of the sea life . . . and the life for those who wait. Almost as bad as being a military wife in terms of uncertainty!

    1. The sea is indeed a fickle and unpredictable foe…I live on the Atlantic Ocean and know many people who depend on the ocean’s goodness to provide their income…
      Have a great week. Cheers!

  3. Very touching, Sylvia. This is the second one I’ve read that mentioned “Widow’s Walk.” I hadn’t heard of it before. I like your take on this week’s picture.

    1. Hi Pat–thanks for commenting..I confess that I had to double-check ‘widow’s walk ‘ on Wikipedia before I posted…although I have seen these balconies on various properties in the Maritimes!
      Cheers!
