#FlashFiction Challenge for Carrot Ranch Literary Community…

August 13, 2020, prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less), write a story about a first flight. It can be anything or anyone that flies. What is significant about the first? Go where the prompt leads!

As we grow older
We tend care a little more
About the young ones
Children, animals, it doesn’t matter
If they’re young
We acquire a mothering apron
Fussing over their first steps
Eager that they don’t fall
A fall may put them off trying
God helps us when it comes to their
first steps to foraging for themselves
Mother mode goes into overdrive
Unfortunately, we cannot keep the door
closed to the grown-up world
Wanting to, can’t make it so
You can only hope and pray
That you did a good job
Trust that you have
And let go…
