Thanks! I love working with super short stories like this, I find it helps writers of all experience levels realize how little is truly necessary to make a good story :)

Innovative. keep it up.

It reminds me of a "Haiku".
If you don't know, 'Haiku' is a traditional Japanese poetry form.
Haiku consist of 17 letters (characters) in three phrases of 5, 7, and 5 letters on each line.

Example: (Japanese)
fu-ru-i-ke ya (5)
ka-wa-zu to-bi-ko-mu (7)
mi-zu-no-o-to (5)

Translated in English:
old pond [5]
frog leaps in [7]
water's sound [5]

Haiku was the first poetry style to grab my interest as a student. I recall liking the idea that you told a very short story by capturing feelings and did not focus on rhyming.
