The Messiah



Hit my stick

Once
Insects swarm earth
Twice
Plants overpower us
Thrice
The end of the world

Come to me
And you will be safe.

  11. Ninot Ma’am,
    I have to make a 2nd comment. After reading ‘Messiah’ I tried MicroFiction. I made my first MF posting. What a discovery! No wonder you advised to try it after Magpie. I was putting it off because of the counting until Design 215 made it a breeze. I find the 140 limit imposed discipline such that it imprints on the mind after reading an MF posting and it lingers on. It invoked questions. That was what I found out after reading ‘Messiah’. And another thing. After going through most of the rest, I find Messiah and a few of others are like Picasso’s abstract, way ahead. Maybe the 140 limit made it natural to wonder - what else that could have been included?. I found that a challenge. Thanks for making it happen! MF is a must from now on.
