Nature Nurture

A boy was born today.

The hospital played, “Ode to Joy” to announce his arrival.

For a moment,

Staff paused their treatments,

Patients forgot their pain.

Hope filled their hearts

…..for a moment.

33-word micro-fiction post about the whole Boys Will Be Boys debate going on in our society. Thanks to my pal, Emily, for the word nurture as a story prompt.

  1. Well done Tom. I could actually visualize the event as you wrote it. I volunteer at Lakeridge Hospital in Oshawa and I could almost hear the “Ode to Joy”
    being played and all staff, volunteers & visitors looking up, making eye contact with someone and smiling!
