Ninety five words

for Sammi’s Weekend Writing Prompt where the given word is Mirror and the limit a very generous 95 words!



Sitting in an empty room, alone. Reflecting on the past.

What might have been, could have been, what should have been.

Time had blurred the pictures in her mind.

Images once vivid now vague.  Feelings once deep, shallow. 


A glance in a looking glass showed another view, a mirror image of what she foresaw. 

Smiling faces blowing kisses, grateful people saying thank you, folks forgotten reappearing.


‘Where have you been?’ whispered a voice in her ear.


No longer alone, she now has memories to keep her company. Happy memories. 

If only she had looked before.

    A lovely narrative, Keith. I only wish she had someone to share those memories with now 🙂
