Hope’s Spire: A 46 Word Micro Story

The war was over. But no one told the pilot dive-bombing the crystal spire piercing heaven’s vault. Fire blossomed, shearing off the peak. I pressed my hands to the sundered symbol. Feeding power into its cracks, I fused hope’s pieces and secured a future peace.

  1. Wow! I love a good fantasy piece. This was brilliant, Melinda! Did the healer sacrifice himself/herself to ensure a peaceful future?

  2. Your descriptions and imagery, your word play, it’s so so so good Melinda. It’s rare to come across someone who knows their way around words like you do.

    My favorite: “…pilot dive-bombing the crystal spire piercing heaven’s vault.” The line just jumps off the screen and at the reader ❀
