Greetings, Weekend Writing Warriors! 

This is the second part of a three-part short story shared from my growing collection of pieces. It is called: Farmer. Complete, it consists of 500 words.

Ten days into fallow, H’rald ordered and paid for his new seed. It arrived, by courier, in its special anti-contamination container, with its Certificates of Authenticity and all its New Science Guarantees.

Preparing and loading the seed trays was his favourite part of the process. Each tiny pearl was gently inserted deep into the rooting compound, with a single drop of precious Ichor, and then the trays were placed under the germination lamps.

His daily visits to the germination chamber were, to him, his most sacred pilgrimage. As H’rald watched the tiny nubs of life crest through the golden rooting crystals, he had been cultivating his field. By the time the seedlings were ready for transplant, it was in prime condition.

  1. I thought your use of the word Ichor very interesting. I thought I knew what it meant, but looked it up anyway. Very interesting three definitions. I wonder which one this resembles as it’s how he’s feeding the seeds. Wonderful descriptions!
