Very Very Short Stories
We went on a drive through the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and I took so many beautiful photographs. When driving through Cade’s Cove early morning, we were lucky enough to see one of the bear families. Watching mama bear and her three cubs and getting some photographs of them was awesome. I also snapped some photos of the beautiful butterflies going from flower to flower. I love capturing the beauty of nature and there are times I put poems together using the photos I took. After looking at the photographs I snapped, I happened to remember about a few short, very very short stories I wrote. I pulled out my drafts, checked out my photos and put them together to write these two very very short stories.
Butterflies and Lady Bugs
It was a warm spring day and the butterflies and lady bugs were playing in the garden. They were all having such a great time, going from flower to flower for a bit of nectar. As the day ended, they all said their goodbyes and left. The next day, they met again, enjoying the sun and nectar. This went on all spring and summer, the butterflies would flutter by and the lady bugs would buzz around.
Fall came and one by one, the butterflies headed to warmer climate. They tipped their wings as they took off as if to say, “I’ll see you next spring”. During late winter, the little lady bug came back and clung to a lonely rose-bush. She said, “I want you to come home. Winter is so long and I want to see you now.”
Early spring came around and the cocoons were beginning to show up and before long the beautiful butterflies emerged for another wonderful spring and summer. The little lady bug was so happy to finally be back with the rest of her family.
Mama Bear and Babies
Mama bear and her baby bears are very close. When one hurts, the other feels it. Mama bear is always worried about her baby bears and wants to see them happy. She can sense when something is bothering one of them. There are times when one of her baby bear says she’s okay, but Mama bear knows something is bothering her. Baby bear knows that Mama and Papa bear will always be there for her and if anything is bothering her, they will help her get through it.
Family is so important and the more love a family has, the better it is. Some day baby bear will have a family of her own, but Mama and Papa bear will still be there for her and her new family.
