Twittering Tale #116 – 25 December 2018


At midnight a single light shone from an upstairs window.
The old man wrapped the only gift he gave each year.
The tree in the yard was festooned with the signal bauble.
At one minute past, he heard the tap.
Bowing he gave the gift to his caller.
The caller gave him another year.

    Love the mystery of this tale Michael. It feels sad and horrible at the same time. Well done. And a very merry Christmas and happy New Year to you and yours. 🙂
