John loved Marie, but she loved Jon. To Marie’s sorrow, Jon loved Maria, who did not love anyone. John wooed Marie while she wooed Jon. Meanwhile, Jon secretly wooed Maria.
One day, Maria saw for the first time John. She fell madly in love with him, and began wooing him.
This week I’m republishing some of my favorite 50-word stories.

I write as a way of life: stories, blogs, articles, almost-poems. I'm a freelancer, a vegetarian, and I listen to Leonard Cohen and enjoy French films. We are dying a little more with each new day we live, so shouldn't we make the most of our time?

Goodness…that is a tongue twister of a story. 😀 Nicely done.
That was the purpose Caitlin, to twist your tongue. I’m glad it worked.
By the way, I’ve read a while ago this poem of yours with the wind and the sky. I liked it! I will read it again as soon as I can. 🙂
Well thanks Mr. Mars. 😀 Love your posts too.
