Of Glass & Paper

Inspired by Sue Vincent’s Thursday photo prompt

The ground was dry, it would be some days before rain fell again, perhaps longer. As we walked through the field we saw the small shell, among the debris of the last harvest: was it murder, theft or accident?

You looked at me and said: “Just think, if it was ours, our egg, our unborn child?” I looked again, the pale colour of the thin shell, the fragility of the poor abandoned egg.

Life is so fragile, and yet, it perdures.

    O my, you did get a lot of drama out of this short story. Tugs on the heartstrings.

    Sue that’s thought-provoking. We aren’t able to hold forces of nature responsible for murder or theft because only people can commit crimes. And that frustrates people when nature takes a life from them. I suppose that’s why they curse God, so they can blame someone for the crime of a lost life. So they feel like ‘someone’ is responsible.
