There will be no sons for me

Today’s Oneword: Sons

The Oneword website is a daily writing exercise where you have 60 seconds to write something based on one word. Here is today’s 1-minute creative riff:

“There will be no sons for me,” he said, staring out at the sun as it set far across the plains. “No daughters. No laughter of children. The fire of life is a beautiful thing, but it can be a cruel one too. You live completely and fully—but that life dies with you. For all the things you think I will know, all the friends you think I walk with in the world, the simple joy that makes your heart beat will always be a stranger to me.”

What are these things?
Oneword posts are a way for me to explore ideas for my Rucksack Universe of travel fiction stories. Want to know more? Leave a comment below or check out the stories.
