We’re not seamstresses.

Sister Marjorie plows neat furrows in the field of time and plants lives into the soil.  Sister Phyllis pulls weeds and keeps everything watered.

I pick fruit in its ripeness, when your time and season has come.

This was written for Sammi Cox’s Weekend Writing Prompt #90, Furrowed.  Greek mythology has inspired ages of poets and writers, so I decided to give this interpretation of fates a somewhat more pastoral, American outlook in this 40 word snippet.  Hope you enjoyed this!
