Sunday Strange microfiction challenge

Jane’s given us another gem to peruse over.

Gladys, armed with her burying staff, set about to tend the graves of the latest dear departed. Being somewhat new to the job, she wasn’t exactly sure what to expect, so when she saw the orb in the sky, she thought it was normal under the recent sad circumstances.
Standing at her tallest and most respectful, she lifted her hand aloft.
Believing that the spirits had come to collect their souls and transport them to the next world, she bid them a fond farewell.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and have a terrible sweet tooth. Best friends are Hubby, our dog Maggie, Bro in NZ, MSM and MOH (and his dog). I am also a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we were once again house hunting until September. We now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.

  1. Yes, well, Gladys was never the sharpest tool in the shed, was she? I’m glad you had a stab at clearing up the enigma. It’s left me wondering about things like burying staffs and Monfgolfiers coming to collect dead souls…

    “and most respectful” What a nice phrase.
