And a Fiction in 58 came out

Fiction in 58. Give yourself 58 words to tell a snippet of a story. Good practice.

Prayers
In a city that sleeps, there’s a square of light that illuminates the gloom.
A single candle tosses a feeble glow across walls.
He rests on his knees on the side of the bed, hands folded in prayer like a Rockwell painting. Eyes squeezed tight, lips moving, the plea silent.
He wants to be heard.
He wants change.

Hey there. One of the memes in which I participate on Mondays was actually about praying. It never ceases to amaze me how well you get your point across with such limits! 58 INCLUDING the title??? Eeek!
