Ruby’s #OneMinuteStory 05 ‘Death of an Emperor’

Day 05 a sad #OneHundredWords story about a butterfly and although he is far from his loved ones, others in nature stay by his side so he will not be alone. ‘Death of an Emperor’ by Rose English.

Happy Listening.

Death of an Emperor

Three bees bow low in respect to the Emperor. He lay exhausted. Broken and dusty were his wings, the once bright colours muted with edges now tattered and torn. He had been blown off course by a great tempest, far away from his beloved Queen and children. Yet the bees would not leave him to die alone.

The wind calmed, and the Emperor took his last breath.  Aged wings closed for the last time. An army of ants came and carried him to the shade of the old oak, where he would rest eternally and become one with the earth.

Share A Million Stories for World Book Day

Folk can still sign up to be part of the Million Stories Event with prizes up for grabs.  All reading for a minimum of 10 minutes counts towards a story share.

DON’T FORGET: 1 story share = the number of children who are listening, so if you are reading to a group of 30, that’s 30 story shares!

No Birds.

No birds were there singing this morning,
as the new day around us was dawning.
It’s raining outside,
in their nests they do hide,
snuggled up in their down and just yawning.


Today I am the soft summer rain,
You are my sweet golden sunshine.
Together we’ll build us a rainbow,
to last, a life time.

The Birds.

I heard the birds singing since dawn.
So I rose from my bed with a yawn,
as I stepped out my door
I said “Please sing some more.
Then I’ll join you for drinks on the lawn”.

Thank you for visiting

Day 05 Camp NaNoWriMo

So I thought I would share with you part of my reason for doing the Camp NaNoWriMo Challenge. It is to create some original prose to go with the poetry I did during my NaPoWriMo (National Poetry Writing Month) Challenge earlier in the year. I absolutely LOVE the cover by JC CLarke.

Collection of Poetry & Prose, a sequel to ‘Rainbows and Roses’ which is a delightful selection of whimsical short stories, along with a collection of poetry inspired by memories from childhood, the environment, together with a little bit of fun.
