The Most Beautiful Flower

Viewed from the shop doorway, despite his haphazard zigging, and seemingly aimless zagging, the shabby-looking stranger was surely heading for Señor Alvarez’s mini-mercado. Almost in the single-minded manner of an ancient bloodhound on the trail of a half-forgotten, but much-loved sausage, to the grocer’s well-trained eye.

    Oh Bryan, I truly love your writing. (a constipated camel’s bum hole! 🙂 )

    Do you get about saying ‘buenos dias’? Just picturing… And I guess ‘buenos tardes’ is good night?

    A lovely tale, Bryan. Each and every is special 🙂

Rules on comments

As the comments sections are not intended to be general forums, comments are expected to bear some relevance to the subject of the post. Nevertheless, I do allow some generous leeway in this, particularly if I judge the comment to be of special interest.

Although I'm only too happy to link to your posts, those posts should be your own work, and not the work of others, due to copyright issues.
