Short story: <i>In The Garden</i>

A flower wilts in the hot sun.

A fountain drips into its blue square base.

The cat torments a fallen leaf.

The branches of a large tree span the garden, and scratch at the windows.

A garden gnome swings sadly from a piece of nylon washing line, by its neck, suspended above the gutter.

This is the result of a fifteen minute writing exercise. The only constrictions were the time limit and five randomly selected words from the dictionary. Today the words were: wilts, torment, square, span, and gnome.
