Bones

Fairy walking bridge, Huangshan, China. Photo by Jesse Varner.

My father ate my mother, when he saw her belly swell.

My brothers and sisters,  we devoured him, we thirty-three, in being born we feasted.

Now we walk bridges built into his bones.

Written for this weekend’s Trifecta Writing Challenge!

And I also used the Flash! Friday photo prompt.

    Oh, Chris, this is just gorgeous. My favorite of all this week, I think. I love the imagery, the voice, the attention to the prompt, and the creativity. Beautiful.
