I have been busy
and out of pocket this week!
So glad I am back in time to
to participate in Jenny Matlock's
What is Saturday Centus?
It is a themed writing meme.
Each Saturday, Ms. Matlock will give
a writing prompt.
if you choose to accept it...
is to write a 100 word story.
Yes, 100 words or less...
not including the "prompt words".
Oh, and the prompt words can
be used anywhere in your story!
Sounds like fun, doesn't it?
The writing prompt is good for the entire week,
so you can join in at any time!
THIS WEEK'S PROMPT:
It's true, the smell of freshly mowed grass
can stay with you for years, for decades,

I was eighteen and ripe for the picking. The day he came to town, heat waves were dancing mirages on the asphalt country roads. He was part of the wheat harvest caravan that migrated south each summer. His job was to harvest the best crop our town had to offer and then disappear, leaving scraped, fertile earth behind.
We met in the park. The sun was setting. Children had retreated home for sandwiches and lemonade in front of box fans. The hum of a lawnmower filled the air.
It's true, the smell of freshly mowed grass can stay with you for many years, for decades, forever.
