Five Sentence Fiction – Alone

Alone… By SHA-1 SOURCE

Alone… By SHA-1


Loneliness is the time when all sorts of thoughts confuse one , take them to the introspection as  she  was   wondering while walking alone that  whether she has   lived her  life in a daze or else why there is so much loneliness ,emptiness sometimes in her heart, in spite of being surrounded by relatives, friends and neighbors, there was something missing in her life.

Suddenly she noticed a Fortune Teller  sitting with his  caged parrot , waiting for the people to come and  know their fate.

Whenever someone came he opened the door , parrot came out, selected a card, gave it to him and went inside the cage.

She  noticed it never tried to fly away even if the door was open instead closed it  by itself.

Was it for food, security or it has become habituated to living alone , loving the captivity or simply lazy like her who never tried to venture beyond her comfort zone?


About Indira

I knew all along that life is about, love, compassion, compatibility and friendship, but now I have discovered that life is also about sharing thought, encouraging others and getting encouraged. So here I am with my blogs about life, friendship, love, and whatever life has taught me.

  1. Loneliness perhaps is some kind of mental agony.It doesn’t matter how many people are around you, you feel lonely.As for the parrot it is probably contented living in a closed environment . After long years of captivity maybe it’s so used to it that cannot remember anything.else.


  2. love the photo, so much feeling!


  3. I felt this way many times, afraid to leave my comfort zone! It takes courage to step out! Nicely done! ( I had to leave before I could post a comment, so I came back )


  4. Somehow I missed seeing this link on Lillie’s site. You’re so right about the comfort zone. About two weeks after one of our cats died, we had her cremated and then had the ashes buried my OH and I got a new cat. Having one cat already we kept her isolated in our bedroom with the door closed with all of her necessities, litter box, food, water, scratching box etc. After about 36 hours we open the door completely as long as one of us was home. For the first several days she didn’t venture out of the comfort zone of the bedroom she’d been in. After that each day she’d venture further and further into the 25+ foot long hallway which takes you through the rest of the apartment until she made it into the living room. Today she roams and runs through the apartment at will resting and sleeping any place she feels like.

    We all have our comfort zone which changes day by day, THANKS for writing this as it is so true to each one of us. Well done,
