Saturday Centus – Wk#173 – Prompt: “Hot time. Summer in the City.” – 106 words – “Contrast”

21 Aug

Tamiko was scholar of the tribe, gifted in knowledge of old and young ways. She was keeper of the archives, sharer of knowledge and teacher to the young.

“Tamiko?”

Tamiko smiled at one of her small students, “Yes, child?”

“What do the words mean?”

She’d chosen an ancient song for their lesson.

“Hot time. Summer in the City,” the words flowed without meaning to the young.

Tamiko explained, “In ancient times our world was much warmer, our sun much brighter. The words tell of warming times in big villages.”

The young learned the world hadn’t always been the same. There’d been the time of the greening.
