Lost Legend

six sentence story copyBlue-green veins, raised rivers, gully the topography of work worn hands. Parchment skin, brown stained translucence, is crinkled and cracked. Cast tracks edge pewter seas of fog-strewn eyes. Sinewy lines map a history, mark a long life, deeply etched yet inscrutable, the mystery undecipherable.

Something is torn, there’s a missing piece; the legend to the map is gone. Treasure remains hidden, mysteries unresolved.


The Six Sentence Story prompt word is “legend”. Come Wednesday you can share your six sentence story at the linkup at GirlieOntheEdge

    • Why thank you. All I knew this week was that I wanted to go with a map legend, then an old map and it ended up an old person.
      No narrative, just playing around with the descriptions, in six sentences.
      Thanks for the prompt and as to the missing words– Finders, keepers…
