David Vs. Goliath

A short story that came to my mind looking at the small plant growing off the roots of a coconut tree. There is so much such few words can convey – so many plots that you can make out of a small poem or paragraph. Photo courtesy – my Malpe trip.

Enjoy the micro-fiction. And let me know what you thought of it. 🙂

Microfiction, storytelling, David vs. Goliath, short story

It had taken a loan of life

From the roots of another

Its life could be sustained

If it could borrow a little more

 

But the other stopped lending

And so it willed to survive at any cost

 

Who would win?

Goliath the giant tree or

David the young sapling?
