Old Shoe

“Well, that seems new. Has it always been there?”

“Nope, no shoe can last eternally in one spot. Plus, I’m positive it wasn’t there last week.”

“Hmmm… I guess so.”

“Maybe it was left by the gardeners when they filled in that rosebed.”


I decided to try something new with the Auto speech option on Anchor.

The photo prompt has been given by Roger Bultot at the Friday Fictioneers hosted by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields and the word prompt (Meter) has been given for the Six Sentence Stories hosted by Denise Farley.

  1. The words “always” and “eternally” seem like they should mean the same thing until we use them in a sentence.

  11. If I’m following you, did they bury a body in the rosebed but leave the boot out by mistake? A sure clue the cops will be suspicious about if so lol

  13. excellent juxtaposition of the prompt word and a certain quality of ‘shoes’, i.e. a modern update of the old chestnut: ‘You can’t step in the same river twice’

    fun! (and as Paul Commented) thought-provoking
