three line tales, week 107: diaries, roses and bobbins with sewing thread

Written for 3 Line Tales



In my grandmother’s hope chest, I come across a photo for which I have no meaning–thread spools and a diary.

Beneath the photograph lies the aged diary, which I open.

In her curly inked strokes: Never forget a slender thread of humanity sews every single one of us together.
