100 Word Challenge: Water

I’m not going to get very fancy for this week’s prompt. We sprung a major water leak over the weekend in a line that runs under our driveway. Finding a local contractor who can do the job has not been easy. Basically, we’ve been without running water since Saturday.

A contractor was finally able to get over Tuesday, but he ran into complications. Hopefully he will be back on Wednesday, but it could be as late as Thursday.

We can turn the water back on, leak and all, for short durations for showers, to wash dishes, and fill toilet tanks. I am grateful for dry shampoo and wet wipes… I kid… sort of… maybe.

First world problems….

Water, water, every where
Nor any drop to drink.
“The Rime of the Ancient Mariner,” ~ Samuel Taylor Coleridge

This week’s words is:

Water

I believe all good fiction includes an element of truth, and all good photography includes an element of fantasy. In this journal I hope to give voice to the stories swirling around in my head, and to capture the images I see through my camera’s lens.

  1. I hope your water issues are solved by now.
    Here is my entry for this week.
    WATER

    Terra cotta containers lined the front of the house and the area around the garage. Geraniums, nasturtiums, zinnias, cosmos, and morning glories grew with wild abandon. She put a water filled bottle upside down in each pot to slowly water them while she was on vacation.

    On her return she discovered wilted and dried up flowers. Somehow, the soda bottles had fallen over. The water spilled out but not into the potted plants.

    Fearing the worst she tended to the pots. She liberally watered each one hoping the flowers would come back to life. Only time would tell their fate.
