Summer Series – Where Are The Flowers?

Groundskeeper’s Apprentice, my new job.
I was proud but, a problem soon arose.
The pay sucked.

To make ends meet, I began collecting the fresh blooms left by mourners,
selling them back to local florists, who resold them again.

Repurpose, Reuse, Recycle

Written in the shape of a Gargleblaster!

    1. I like your question. Now I need to ponder it. First I have to decide if you meant emotionally different or tactilely different! Could be the subject of a future post…


    1. The first thing that popped into my mind was, “Where have all the soldiers gone?” so I had to go somewhere else. Glad you liked it.


  1. I don’t think that the deceased would have an issue with their flowers being used to feed a poor groundskeeper. Like they say, money needs to be spread around to make things grow! I like the practicality of this piece.

    1. I can see both sides of this as well. I am certain society would be mortified. And, maybe they should be but then again???
      Good to see you here Marcy.


  2. Very practical and resourceful, I say! I love that this perfectly answers the question – it could almost be darkly amusing but then maybe I have a sick mind.

  3. Yep, I’m all for the 3 Rs! Creative direction with the prompt, and I admire how you’ve grabbed my sympathy for this character in so few words.

    1. Thanks – I’ll have to figure out a way to pull off a story arc with 42 words…? My head’s starting to hurt already.
