2022 #50PreciousWords Contest

Every year Vivian Kirkfield hosts the #50PreciousWords contest. Tell a children’s story in 50 words or less. Here is my entry:

ONE LESS
by Lori Himmel
50 words

Plastic trash swirls
near the pond.
I try to grab it,
but it loops, twists,
rockets past me
ZOOP!

“Get back here!”
I sprint across the park
past the swings
over the sandbox
“Stay still!”
Wind whooshes, then
SCHOOP!
Finally, I trap it under my foot,
“Goodbye, trash!”
One less.
