World Famous Site: A 100 Word Story

“And here you see the world-famous site,” the tour-guide made a point under the shade of the tree.

“What?”
“Are you serious?”
“Really?”
All the tourists put forth their opinion.

“You don’t believe me. Have you ever seen such a phenomenal thing? There were even talks of taking it under the protection of UNESCO World Heritage List. I think the government is making provisions to do so.”

“Are you sure this tree… uh… tree-cycle… cycle clung, no hung to tree is a famous site… huh?” a kid asked seriously.

“Oh what? I was talking about the ancient fort on your left.”

Evolution

The evolution of a being

from the childhood’s reverie

to a grown up’s veracity

from the glimmer of the stars

to the blaze of the sun

from a small injury

to a large gaping wound

from an innocent vision

to a gruesome deed

from the world of truth

to the universe of tall tales

from a fresh water lake

to the ever salty ocean

from the protection of the nest

to the vast lonely sky

from a seed that is sown

to a pest infected plant

from the drop of nectar

to an urn of venom,

the evolution of an infant

to a grown up soul

tarnished by world

shaded by emotions

from the afternoon nap

to the insomniac nights

from the playful toys

to the killer weapons,

there is an evolution

a real evolution

of a spirit as he turns

from a joyful mirth

to an evil sneer in the end.
