Friday Fictioneers “The Chain” – Haibun – June 5, 2015

A chain, that keeps me close to the land, and to him.  Constructed in iron humiliation and pride, hidden in the beach of his desire.  A chain, an anchor I’d once thought it was.  The price to pay for security is sometimes very high.  Just like a chain, this feeling of suffocation.

§§§§§§§

Just beyond the hill, the sea calls: “Come to me – give up your fears – be free!”

Remembering the salt tang of wind on my face, I catch a train … leaving the abandoned chain in the wet sand – forgotten.

  1. Free at last, I’m glad she could break her chains. It’s a difficult thing to do. Great take on the prompt.
