Tiny remembrance


Recommended Posts

 In a month heavy with memories of my late friend (his birthday, our last meeting in person) I challenged myself to write a 100-word vignette.

The tone of his email was optimistic, despite the grim news it contained. “If you come to Europe, let me know. It would be good to see you.” The evening of my visit to his country coincided with a lunar eclipse, that was obscured by the cityscape. The universe gifted us another occurrence six months later. We viewed the blood supermoon apart, together: After midnight in my time zone, before dawn in his.  As the redness crept along the disk, the harsh glare of his cancer dimmed,  as it too receded briefly into Earth’s shadow.
