Edge

Here’s another Drabble (a 100-word piece) on ‘Edge’:

Boundary, border, limit…call me whatever, I’m the Edge, sharply running across or thick and fuzzy. Rod-like rigid or elastic as rubber. Often impenetrable, sometimes a child could walk over! Physical and at times, magically in the mind!

Life for me isn’t easy – always tense, stretched between black and white, joy and sorrow, penury and plenty, life and death, sanity and otherwise…the chief reason for land not being all water, for a circle being a circle.

Tell me, am I the divisive and the war mongering, or a watchful sentinel laboring hard to keep the labels, nay, the sides in check?

    A perfect grey area for this imperfect grey matter to ponder on

    Hello! First timer here! I’m not much for the longer writings, short attention span, but your two drabbles, Edge and Ghost, are great! I definitely enjoyed them! TC Don

    Reminds me of Robert Frost’s line “Good fences make good neighbours”.

    How perceptive! But, except for Life and Death, we mostly dwell in shades of grey.
