Winner 55 Word Challenge: Week Thirty-Seven

Winner 55 Word Challenge:
Week Thirty-Seven
First, a big thank you to Tome for judging this weeks contest and for contributing such inspiring photos. We had a lot of great entries this week and I know judging could not have been easy. This is what our judge had to say:
Wow, what fantastic entries! I really hope everyone keeps coming back because these were excellent.

I've decided, though, on three honorable mentions and a winner:

Honorable mentions:

SJIHolliday - The poem in this was fun, and it made me want to know more about the scenario, like it could be developed into a longer work.

H.L. Pauff - I really enjoyed the structure of this piece, especially the repetition of "When...", and the scene was very creative.

Sarah- I absolutely loved the simile comparing the cello to a boat. Robert's grief is heartbreaking in this tale.


Rebekah Postupak - Rebekah's piece cleverly used all three prompts (always an impressive feat), and I loved the concision in her story. It spoke volumes every few words. The ending surprised me, which is really cool in a tale only 55 words.
He composed his first concerto at forty-seven and his second six weeks later. Making up for lost time, he said, laughing.

At fifty-five he learned craps. He won hard, lost hard, both without regret.

Painting came at sixty: landscapes, seascapes, in gloriously vibrant greens and blues.

Vegetative state, they said, shaking their heads.

As if.

55 words

Everyone has my congratulations and thanks!

(And thank you Lisa for letting me judge!)

Thank you, Tome, for judging!
Ok, I also have to announce the winner of the #55WordChallenge Bumper Sticker. After reviewing last months winners I had to settle on the one that made me chuckle the most. That would be this weeks judge,
@SareeseFeet  Here is her story:
Last night I swear I saw the moon combust in meteors. A banshee caught the blue debris. Her words were echoes but they said, "Now... I'm at rest." I offered to still seek revenge. She screamed; I knew I shouldn't have brought it up. When she disappeared, I hoped she had a chance at peace.

I will let you know when I am ready to send the bumper sticker. I have to order more and it takes a few weeks to get to me.

See you all back here next week!
