Today’s memory changes up a bit. Instead of a previously published poem, here is a short story from May, 2019. It is an example of micro fiction (with 115 words). Enjoy!
A famished black bear rummages through the thick, overgrown forest. His endless appetite resembles a midnight thief raiding the fridge for a sweet tasting snack.
His ravenous mood brings him to an ancient tree trunk, containing a large opening. The tree might as well display a flashing sign: HONEY!
The bear’s sweet tooth needs to be satisfied, but before he can explore further . . . a warning signal vibrates through the inside of the tree.
The colony of honeybees has been notified that an intruder has arrived at their honey factory: HONEY ALERT!
A swarm of bees flies into attack position. The lead striker says, “We have the target in sight.”
GO! GO! GO!
