89 words…

for Sammi’s Weekend Writing Prompt  # 127 where the given word is Replace and the word allowance, 89.




It was a beautiful day.  The sun smiled at me.  Trees bowed and birds tweeted twello.  I waved at a flag and it waved back. 

Unfortunately, I tripped on a dancing dandelion and my hat flew off.  I asked a passing gust of wind to bring it back.  Blow that it said and kept going.  My shadow tried catching it but sadly he slithered down a drain.

I miss my shadow, we had so much in common.   He was always by my side.  How will I ever replace him?

    Dear Keith,

    A Peter Pan-ish story. Perhaps he can find a Wendy to sew his shadow back on. Very clever story.
