Turning began as some of the hardest work she had ever done, round and round; round and round; the repetition creating soreness that seeped into bone. ‘Creation takes skill and effort’ the wizened woman told her before leaving her with the stones; ‘skill and effort, repeating, repeating.’
Grinding the harvest into useful fodder, she sat amid the stones, turning one, then the other; the effort of gleaning something valuable honing and reshaping not only the kernels of possibility, but her self as well. Turning, turning, muscles burning, skill and effort gleaning true.
Creation: art that blends hard work with faith.
Every Wednesday we get a new picture prompt for the Friday Fictioneers, a writing challenge to spin a tale of exactly 100 words, graciously hosted by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. This is my contribution.
