Friday Fictioneers – The Japanese Garden

Photo prompt copyright CEAyr












Simply designed and aesthetically pleasant

Peace and tranquility; balanced with care

ponds of Koi add colour and serenity

and a taste tease for passing pets

Pebble paths, raked fine or paths paved wide and straight

lead the guest – winding or pacing

to interesting spaces with interesting traits

and quirky surprises

Bonsai trees; aged and perfect; delicate and refined

Encouraged with love and meticulous binding

A joy to behold

and treasured through time

Partnered with architecture; imbued with history

Elements of stone, wood, bamboo and flora

Creating an image of spiritual aura;

and a sense of mystery

Springs suddenly youth, impressively so

Cherry blossom – pink, white or red

Struts and blooms; then petals drop



This is my submission for Friday Fictioneers 5 October 2016.

The idea is to fashion a story that has a beginning, middle, and end and within 100 words.
