Friday Flash 55 ~ Dried Lipstick and a Full Moon

Why the hell am I afraid? That shadow in the corner is just the baggage you left behind. Preaching goodbye dried my lipstick waiting for the door to slam, but I didn’t plan for gone. I’ll tell the neighbors I thought it romantic to plant that maple tree by the light of a full moon.

For G-Man

  6. The maple tree hides a multitude of sins! ;-)
    It will also yield lovely syrup for pancakes once grown.
