Monday’s Finish the Story: “She lived in a mango tree.”

She lived in a mango tree - Finish the Story

Monday’s Finish the Story this week is “She lived in a mango tree.” (100-150 words not counting the starter).


She lived in a mango tree. She knew no other life. She was born in that mango tree and night after night, she would look down from her perch, at the city below and wonder just why in houses people prefer to dwell. Her tree was more than a tree, it was a home, and with birds and squirrels for friends, nobody could ever feel alone. Her tree, it provided not just a meal, it gave her shade, and shelter; her home was ideal!  Yet still, night after night, despite her great comfort, she would sit and she’d stare; and continue to wonder – just what am I missing from life down below?

    It seems we alway wonder about or desire that which we don’t have. Sounds like he is having these thoughts. Great story!

      Yes! We always wonder what we are missing. In reality we have been already provided everything we need! Thanks for your comment

    Reminds me of the old saying, “The grass is always greener on the other side of the road.” Nicely woven tales Thane! Thank you for participating in the Mondays Finish the Story challenge. Be well… ^..^
