Writing Challenge Day 16: Imagine you had a job in which you had to sift through forgotten or lost belongings. Describe a day in which you come upon something peculiar, or tell a story about something interesting you find in a pile.
Yesterday, my sister was cleaning up the living room and she found a text book. Hidden inside this old economics text book was a leaf, a dried leaf one of siblings book smashed and brought down here. It was a leaf from the garden at my uncle’s house, it was a nice place miles and miles and miles away from here. This leaf must have been lying there idle for about 6 years. Desiccated, crumbling and withered.
I look at the leaf, and remember that trip and realised how much life has changed the past 6 years. How many people have come and gone. And how things are different. In just 6 years… I wonder what’s in store for the 6 years ahead.
