A tiny mouth suckles at her dry breast, defiantly trying to cling on to life. Two pairs of small hands tug at her tattered sari, faces streaked with dirt, tears and hunger pangs. Wings clipped, she only gazes listlessly at the sky.
This is so touching, Atreyee! Great job with the prompt, dear.
Thank you R:-) Am hoping to pull up my socks this week-way behind in catching up with my comments-leave alone reading and writing!
A vivid image portrayed in every word.
Well written … very nice.
Hi Isadora!So good to see you after such a long time:-)Thank you for your sweet comment 🙂
I’ve been on a long vacation .. 2 graduations.
Hope to be back on the horse again soon. I always enjoy your stories.
Have a great week. ❤
Oh great-congrats! I too haven’t been writing much or reading/commenting-been dealing with some health issues -hoping to limp back to normalcy or some semblance of it by and by :-)You have a wonderful week too,love and God bless xx
A beautiful word portrait. Kudos.
Thank you dear friend 🙂

Thank you my dearest Gina :-)It lifts me to read your comment-you are such a gift to me,my friend,love xx
I’m glad to see that you’re feeling better. I appreciate you very much, too. ❤
Thank you Gina-am not really better but am trying to inspire myself and hoping that in a few months time I shall be in a better shape.Have been diagnosed with Hashimoto’s disease-thus the low energy,lack of good vibes etc etc 😛 But God willing,with time I will be bale to give it a thumbs down 🙂

No pressure, Atreyee, only an offer to help.
Yes my friend,you are a sweetheart,thank you and we will talk -soon 🙂
Very powerful, Atreyee! You convey the hopelessness and desperation so well. Such a heartbreaking situation to be in, that’s for sure. (Hmmm… you led me to believe you were struggling with inspiration and you wouldn’t excel at this. Not sure if I should call you modest, or a liar 😛 )
Aww,thank you Janna-you have no idea what it means to read your positive comment-believe me I was struggling-am still at a dead end with SE-will think tomorrow -there still is time.Sam submitted as net became active on her old laptop today plus she finished writing the exams for one of her major papers (finals-2nd sem) :-)Will read the SE entries once voting starts irrespective of whether I submit or not,see you then,love xx

Beautiful, Atreyee. This is so beautifully told and it had to be told. I hope you feel better soon.
Thank you Archita 🙂
Your ending was very haunting with her listless gaze.
Thank you Marcy 🙂
So sad, Atreyee, but achingly vivid.
Take care of yourself, my friend!
Thank you so much Kymm,God bless you too ❤ 🙂
“Wings clipped…” I loved how you used that phrase. This is a heartbreakingly easy picture to visualize. Great job, Atreyee. Thanks for linking up.
Thank you so much Christine 🙂

Oh. So horrible! That packed a huge whallop.
Thank you so much Tina:-)
I don’t know how I could have missed this, it’s so sad but beautiful.
Thank you so much- appreciate your stopping by 🙂
I love this. It’s so… sensual is a correct word, but incongruous in context. I can smell and almost taste the dust.
Thank you so much:-)
Just gorgeous imagery. Great job, Ayetree!
So vivid, powerful, and sad. Lovely take on the prompt! ♥
Thank you Kathy-your warm comment always puts a smile on my face:-)
