Saturday Centus – Wk#129 – Prompt: “The leaves crunched under my boots until they didn’t.” – 109 words – “Difference”

17 Oct

Winter gave way to spring, spring to summer and summer to autumn. Each phase added its own page to my life’s story and my quest to make a difference in the lives of others.

I walked the path of life and felt the cool of winter, saw the spring’s colours and experienced the warmth of summer. I heard the sound of autumn leaves crunching under my boots.

My life’s autumn was a time of reflection. There were many memories I held close to my heart. They reminded me of the joys and tribulations.

The leaves crunched under my boots until they didn’t.

My epitaph read, “He made a difference.”

    Isn’t that the immortality we all seek?

    To make a difference…even in small ways.

    Your words were really poignant this week. They made me teary eyed.

      Thanks for the comment and my apologies for taking so long to reply.

      The fuzzy image of the man was a charming gentleman who used to train children in soccer at my last school. At 96, he passed two years ago but his memory lives on through a sports day and a school hall named in his honour. He truly made a difference in the lives of so many young.
