The Flowers

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, animals both domesticated and wild, ahh, spring is here ...

And to honor the season, I'd like to share a short piece called-- yup, you guessed it-- The Flowers. One of the most powerful short pieces I've ever read is Alice Walker's The Flowers. This is a retelling of Alice Walker's classic story. When ten-year-old Maya's romp through her safe neighborhood takes her on a journey to an old deli, Maya discovers the safety of innocents cannot last forever ... Enjoy.

The Flowers

Later Fiends

Very good work. I enjoyed reading it.

Thanks a lot! I'm glad you enjoyed it.
