THIS IS A 100 WORDS CONTEST ENTRY

Memories

Published by BDCOZZ | Wednesday, July 28, 2010 4:24 PM


BR 100 Word Contest. This is my inspiration every morning as I walk out my back door.


Abounding with memories, the farmyard embodies an inheritance of hard work and sacrifice. A clapboard bunkhouse stores equipment instead of exhausted farm workers. Windows covered by checked curtains fashions a whitewashed brooder house into a child's dream home. Topped by a weathered cupola, the mammoth barn screams of adventure and anecdotes. Leather harnesses and horse shoes hang from the rafters of an abandoned milk barn. A young Irish family endured war, drought and uncertainty to become stronger. They realized all they had was today which has become our tomorrow.

Wow! I agree. I love the last line. You do a nice job of painting a vivid picture with very details specific to this particular setting!

The last line is my favorite! It has a lot of punch to it. The more I read it, the more I fall in love with it. Brings tears to my eyes.
