Letting Life Lead

Yeah Write #8: Stains (Microstory #244)

One circular spot, where a pot once lived, on the hospital floor defied the glossy polish.   Jai left rings: coffee prints on paper, a mystery loop on the new end table, whisker circlets in the sink.  What would I do without them?

      Thank you! I guess I am weird, because all I could think about when I saw the prompt was coffee rings. LOL

    Mmmm coffee. The object of my affection at the start of the day. I’ve dirtied quite a number of rough manuscripts with those little rings. Lovely take on the prompt. 😀

    I loved “mystery loop.” So many little memories and cues to make up the whole.

      Thank you! When I initially wrote it I had “ring” in as fillers and I went back and changed that one word to the little descriptors like “loop” and “circlet”.
