Friday Fictioneers




Young Tyler was gazing from the window. ‘What are you looking at?’ asked little Kate.

‘The man in the moon’

‘Don’t be silly’ said Kate, ‘The moon’s made of cheese’

Mummy walked up behind them. ‘The moon’s a balloon’ she said.

‘No it’s not’ giggled the kids.

‘Tyler thinks there’s a man in the moon’ chuckled Kate.

‘Kate thinks it’s made of cheese’ laughed Tyler.

‘I think it’s bedtime’ said Mummy. ‘Go!’

Through a crack in her curtains, Kate could just see the moon. She watched a little mouse nibbling away at its surface.

Tyler took one last look and waved. The man in the moon waved back.

  1. This is beautiful, Keith and I’ll have what they’re having.
    I was in the plant section of our local Bunnings hardware store last Saturday. It was Father’s Day on Sunday and I was desperately trying to find a plant for my husband which didn’t look like I was buying it for myself.
    There was a family with young kids walking through and about a 3-4 year old little boy says he wants to find a beanstalk. He was so articulate and looking through all the plants with such determination. I recommended some bean seeds instead. I still remember noticing that when the bird’s seed fell on the ground, it grew and planted lollies with a similar hope.
    It’s a shame we ever grow up. Yet, an even bigger tragedy when we don’t.
    Hope you have a great week, Keith.
    Best wishes,

  2. Your story seems so true. , True children, trying to prove their beliefs, true mom behavior, not taking sides, rounding them up for bed, and true moral, that we all see what we want to see and isnt that just fine. Truly delicious!
