The last wish

The skies smiled bluer than usual, the trees waved out in their emerald glory, the roses blushed a gentle pink, all vying for that impeccable first impression. The day sparkled a tad bit more to match the glow in the youngster’s eyes. It was her first view of the world thanks to someone’s last wish.


Day 2 at the Marathon Blogger's Drabble Week and the prompt for the 55er is
"His last wish"

  5. I read Aparna's and then read yours and felt the same as Uma. What lovely interpretations of the same concept. That's what I love about prompts. Tulika, your imagery here is bewitching!
