Lost and Found – Friday Fictioneers

The snow kept piling on and on. The piles made by the snow plows went higher and higher. We thought we’d be buried in a glacier until uncovered by shocked archaeologists refusing to believe it as the evidence falsified everything they held dear.

That’s when spring came. That’s when we could credibly whine about global warming again. That’s when the snow melted.

As it did things we couldn’t find reappeared. All of this uncovered evidence falsified explanations we cherished about what happened to that missing stuff only a fool would have left outside.

I enjoy walking, poetry and short prose as well as taking pictures with my phone.

  1. It must be quite amazing to watch the world being buried under snow for months at a time. I haven’t even seen real snow – just a small drift of it once when I was travelling through the mountains. I like your ideas about archaeologists – very whimsical. And the excuses for things left outside – very human. Nice one.
