Trifextra: Road Kill

Trifextra: Road Kill

January 12, 2013 Writing 26

My breath snuffed, my heart stopped, I hover between time and space. My four-legged life over, I wait minutes until I emerge, squalling and screaming, under bright lights, my new human life begun.

This weekend’s Trifextra assignment was simple: Rebirth in 33 words. Mission accomplished.

Please leave your thoughts, as they are much appreciated, in a comment.

Thanks for visiting! See you again soon!

    Short and sweet. But what is he/she starting life as? A human? or something else LOL?

    reminds me of that reincarnation piece I did for Red Writing Hood a few years back. The cat that was dumped in the water? And it was born as a human child?

    Reincarnation always fascinates me. I like this, moving up from animal to human. Or, would that be a downgrade?

    Wow!Reincarnation-after life-a theme which we,Indians,are taught to believe in-& ‘cos the dog is now being born as a human,it means that it’s good Karma must have promoted him to a higher plane- a wonderful piece:-)

    Interesting. A little creepy that a baby may have been road-kill before. And it takes mere minutes! 🙂

It's YOUR write side, too! Let's hear it!
