The Sparkle of Life







PHOTO PROMPT- Copyright – Jan Wayne Fields

Firstly, apologies to everyone for not commenting in a timely manner last week. Life has suddenly become busy; some great, some awful. I will endeavour to be more efficient this week.

Here’s this week’s offering:

The little boat chugged home across the water. Today was good. The hold full of flapping sardines sparkling back at the stars; the moonlight encrusting the crests of the waves with jewels and spangles.
Juan’s family had fished for the city since it was no more than a church, a store and a bar.
In the twinkling firmament, his forebears looked down, safeguarding a bountiful catch.
He smiled contentedly at the apartment blocks awaking, their lights augmenting life’s sparkle and shining brightest, he fancied he saw in a high window, the prettiest jewels, his wife and their new born daughter.
