Single grave

Autumn’s Spirit

She drifted, like fallen leaves, through walls and doors… propelled as if by magic, drawn to a winter field. Feeling no wind, no cold, but part of the wind. On and on she went, on over fields, trees. Suddenly she was pulled down abruptly, shockingly! She hovered, helpless, over an open, yawning grave… “It’s mine!!”

    I find the mystery in this story fascinating.

    The sudden end works well with the mystical main body.

    Lovely use of 55 words woven with mystery.

    Not a story to read when you are nearing midnight and you live in a converted chapel with a graveyard outside your front door. Very effectively written.

    Thanks Alan! Yes, reading this and living close to a graveyard would be creepy! Glad you enjoyed it!
