Microfiction: When I Came There, She Was Gone

This was originally published by Paragraph Planet on 7 June 2016. (Be sure to check out their other 75-word fiction.)

When I came there, she was gone. The tree which had kept her safe throughout the winter was cracked and broken, yet the branches sprouted bright green leaves. From the cracked trunk of the tree led a path of spring flowers following in her footsteps. I found her at the end of the flowering path, breathing spring into the woods. All around us the trees came alive and blossomed. I leaned in to kiss her.
