Zuzu’s Petals

Zuzu’s Petals (Photography by Joanne Edith)

Hopeless!
      Plunging into the ravaging river-rise,
        Eddying, encircling, engulfing,
            Gasping, grabbing, gripping

His lifeline: enlightening glimpse
            Wished-for alternative reality.
        Time thread, snagged…
    Just in time!     

     “Zuzu’s petals…Zuzu… There they are!”

Written in response to this weekend’s Trifextra challenge #38:  “On to the weekend challenge.  The Monkey’s Paw, a short story by W.W. Jacobs, is about the strings that come with granted wishes.  We are asking you to write 33 words exactly about three wishes that come at a high price to the wisher”.   www.trifectawritingchallenge.com
