Today’s photo prompt for Friday Fictioneers is brought to us by the talented and sagacious Rochelle. https://rochellewisofffields.wordpress.com/2016/03/23/25-march-2016/
The goal is to write a ‘story’, beginning, middle, end, in 100 words more or less.
Several thoughts ran through my head when I saw it. Maybe in yours as well?

“Beauty in Ashes”
Coming home, done with a late night shift, she drove past the burned out hulk. Finally, demolition is in progress.
Appliances, fixtures, boards and tiles, scattered debris, stark and ugly, waited for pick-up.
Remains of someone’s home to be carried away.
Nostalgic and a bit melancholy, as she is this sunny morning.
The workers have not yet arrived to finish the job.
The sorting, recycling still to be done.
Impulsive, she stops and places a flat of bright pansies in the empty commode.
A simple gesture that brings a smile.
Hope is planted.
