The Sunday Yarn ~ Help!

Prompt ~

57 04 April 27th 2014

The mechanical and digitalized vine pruner was a great invention for the vine growers. It saved them a lot of time and money. Unfortunately the vines did not like it.

They complained to their mother – “It is very harsh and the pain is unbearable, it has no consoling words to soothe us, mother. Please, please help us.”

Earth with her extreme capacity for endurance did not respond. The vines entreated her again and again. They howled with pain, wailed incessantly and finally died. Even the hardened mother could not bear it anymore and she advised the vines to prey to St Vincent.

They prayed hard to the foodie saint till he decided to help. A large number of wine producers converted to organic viticulture. It has tripled in France during the last five years, taking the sector from scarcity to abundance. Yet the monster continued in the some vine yards and the vines there endured insufferable pain. They prayed harder to the saint.

At last the saint broke the monsters’ spine ( the axle) and it lies deserted in the vine yard. Soon it will be covered with vines and will not be an eye-sore.

  1. That was a really interesting take, I love the ideas of the vines praying to St Vincent.

    I’ve been talking to Thomas Marlowe and we are both missing the Trifecta Challenge. One thing led to another and we have decided to set up Light and Shade Challenge where there are prompts twice every week and a chance to share what inspiration strikes.

    We are not trying to be the same as Trifecta. They were awesome and I miss them. We do have some really exciting ideas of our own, though and can’t wait to see what happens. It would be great if you could come and join us and see where this journey takes us. Good writers are always welcome. If you have any questions then get in touch either on the Light and Shade Challenge Blog or on the Facebook page. It would be wonderful to hear from you. Lyssa M x
