Here is another of those two-sentence stories with poetry added. I’m thinking of them as “Minuscule” and quick to read.

Read the first Minuscule, the explanation of why I wrote it and got started on this idea, and search under the category Minuscule for others in the series.

And now – all the Minuscule stories have been made into a print book – each story with a pen and ink illustration. Click to see Minuscule on Amazon.


“It’s all about placement and trimming close to the edge, and I’d like to offer a big shout-out to the membership committee of our club, because their tireless efforts have resulted in a weed-free landscape with no invasives, which is certainly a look that we can be very proud of,” said the golf club chairman, sipping at his glass of water, adjusting his glasses, and ready to go on with his annual state-of-the-club address, when he noticed the audience’s bored expressions had changed to puzzlement.

“You said membership committee, not grounds,” said a portly guy in golf attire at table four, and everyone waited, unsure if they were supposed to be clapping, or not.

the landscape
evolves. But the grass
mown down short
smoothed clean
in the same old-fashioned style
reappears each spring

(Shadorma 107)
