55 Fiction, General, Writing Prompts

Caged freedom ~ WOW Prompt


This is my entry for Blogaddas WOW prompt ‘ It is too late now.’

Instead of writing a long post for it I’m attempting a 55-fiction piece this time.

“Should we have let it fly away?” The little boy asked.

“Yes, but you liked it.” His mother answered.

“Would it be happier with his friends in  the sky?” He prodded.

“Yes. Don’t we all want friends?” She replied.

“It is too late now.” He said sadly as he looked at the empty bird cage.

This post is a part of Write Over the Weekend, an initiative for Indian Bloggers by BlogAdda.’
