FIVE SENTENCE FICTION - Silver


Well here we are another Thursday and another prompt word from Lillie for us to create our own little five sentence fiction response. This week she’s given us SILVER, and I feel like taking a somewhat different approach to what many of us will consider doing.

TO OUR GRANDPARENTS

As we enter our senior years what do we as a grandparent remember of the ones we had? We remember the home cook meals our grandmothers made for all of our family gatherings. We remember how we could always go to them to get the things our parents wouldn’t get for us.  They were our second home when our parents wanted to go on vacation go they could get away from us spoiled brats for a week or more. But most all we can remember the twinkle in their eyes and the SILVER in their hair.

  4. The young ones have memories of the old, and the older folks have memories of the young. A fair exchange of gifts! I nice thought for the season.

  5. Nice take on the silver prompt.
    This line rings true as grandparents often have a soft-spot for their grandchildren, as opposed to the children’s parents, and it is often said those living with their grandparents tend to become spoilt. “We remember how we could always go to them to get the things our parents wouldn’t get for us.”
    Keep on writing

      THANKS for the compliment regarding my decision to use another meaning for the word. a meaning as far as I can recall no one else took [I might be mistaken here], and as you probably have already read in my latest entry as well; I am definitely keeping my writing up and expanding it into different genre. Getting new areas of exposure for novel writing can prove to be quite beneficial.
