50 Word Thursdays – Spring Comes

“The colours of the world are changing, day by day.” Les Miserables.

This story was written for the 50 Word Thursday challenge, this week hosted by Teresa, The Haunted Wordsmith:


I have also included Teresa’s Three Things Challenge, the Prompt words today are:

 ice, bloody, spectacles



Are you an optimist? Do you go through the world wearing rose-coloured spectacles? Or do you see through grim eyes, battered down and bombarded with news painting everything black, focusing on all that’s bad in the world?

Life is never all bad or good. It changes all the time. The colours of the world are changing, day by day.

Just when you think the ice will never melt, when the world has turned to a bloody mess, spring comes.

Daffodils, crocuses and Tulips bloom again to remind us that in the midst of the darkest days, the light will return.
