I really liked this last six word story by Phil C, I thought the juxtaposition to the story I had written was really interesting.

Twitterature (280 characters)

To whom does beauty belong? Nature; crafted and tamed by the hands of man, to rival in precision the chaos of nature. Does created beauty belong to the artist, or to the eyes of those who behold. Only after the artist’s hand is no longer there to protect can art become beautiful.

Dribble to Drabble (50 – 100 words)

I am in a space I know well. A space I created. A space which I have long held within my control. Now, these carefully maintained confines contain me. Can they give me everything I need, as I have given them. Will I grow with my roots bound? The grass grows after being cut; leaves return to bare branches after winter. Now winter seems endless and I feel my soil is barren; but still I grow. A habit of a lifetime, growth despite darkness, why stop now? This is where I learn I am a weed and not a flower.
