Jane Jago’s Daily Drabble – Three Hundred and Twenty-Eight

Watching is a lonely job even if what you are bound to observe is your own creation. The One sighed, gustily enough to shake mountains and topple tall trees. A solitary tear splashed continents and drowned islands, but somehow the Creator could not bring Themself to care.

The hands that once built mountains toyed idly with a length of hempen string, knitting something nameless and small.

But when They saw what Their fingers had wrought They plucked a single feather from Their wings and wove it into the waiting string.

A bright bird flew to Their shoulder.

“Pitāḥ,” it said.
