“Flame of the forest”, friends had called her once, for her fiery writing.
Slowly, insidiously life crept upon her.
The fire slept.

One day, at long last, reignited by the vibrant flaming flowers at her window, she took up the pen again reliving her passion, savouring this reunion with herself.


The drabble is done for the picture prompt (above), the word prompt ‘Reunion’ and the phrase prompt ‘At long last’.

  1. Dear Tulika,

    This was executed so lovingly! I would never have guessed that the reunion was with oneself πŸ™‚ And do I detect a touch of autobiographical here? πŸ˜‰

    Why would you need more than 50 words? You've done so well with this! πŸ˜€

    Thanks for linking it up!

    1. Hmmm… Haven't we all been there Shailaja at some point in our lives? We need to keep rediscovering ourselves. Thanks for the warm words. And I still feel very constrained by the word limit.
