By the sea she went, dreaming of home. Wishing to be there. Far, far away.

She cannot. Her kids want her near.

She loves them still.

You might like to try this. It's fast, easy, and fun.


Very well done.

Have a terrific day. Big hug. :)
A tug of emotion here.
I like this one very much. The anti-Anabel Lee.
Nicely done Jim, a Mother's Love. Someday she may get her wish.
Hmmm...Her kids make her stay at the sea where they are, or stay at the sea where they are not? I'm hoping it's stay at the sea where her kids are. My kids being 500 miles away from me makes me sad. Good story.
Nice, Jim. I bet she's a good mom. :)
Those kids!!!! Very nice :O)
Very hard for a mom to ever really stop being a mom. This was very touching.

Mine is up.

Homesick -- what a sad thing to be, but if she were on the other side of the sea, she would be pining for the loved ones left behind.
Yes she is pushed and pulled each day isn't she??
A mother's love...

What a sweet MFM

Thanks Jim

That is a clever take on the picture. Better to stay near her family, I think. Loved it.

Have a great week x
oh,a poignant story in less than 140 char and it is beautiful!


(My first time to do Microfiction and it's FUN!)
This is a poignant one.
As a mother, I relate to her emotions. Nice take on this!
Yes, I've had that feeling of wanting to leave them behind before. Good thing I love them!
I could feel her long...
Well done, Jim!

Have you a blessed week!

torn... touching loyalty! nice Jim!
kids r much important. good one!
Nicely done. The mood suits the picture perfectly.
Oh, now it's a sweet story of a loved mother. I like it much better, Jim! Thanks for making it less ambiguous.

LOL...The word verification is angsts.
Wistful. I like. :)
The things we give up for our children. Sigh, lovely.
Ah, the pull of the sea...My 140 Hope your week goes well
Nice emotion conveyed :)
Hi Jim,

Didn't know you're active in here...:)

A very nice blog, I will come back soon..and read your old beautiful posts!

Good morning!

Btw, I have never done microfiction yet...I may try soon! Quite challenging as I can see it! :)
Ah, I like the sweetness of this one!
Ohh--what we won't do for our children...I can only hope that her sacrifice is worth it in the end.
Isn't she really home now? Wonderful, sad, story.
This is a conundrum for many a person.
Having read all of this...the most glaring thing I noticed was your intention to start a pie chart about who cleans the stove.
I wouldn't do that.
Your story is very intriguing. The things mothers give up for their children.
It's an awful thing to have a heart torn in two -- I love how you captured it.
