3 comments on “The Little Matchgirl’s Last Minute on Earth

  1. I loved the imagery in your expose. I had a clear vision of the little girl freezing, indeed could see her passing her last breath, so vividly. You have a talent. Your words were like a visual hallucination. Beautifully done. That being said, I might add that her reply as she expired surprised me. The description of the ‘lil matchgirl’ conjured up for me a vision of a sweet child who suffered but ‘her heart had been filled with love for all living creatures during the whole course of her short but difficult life’ would not have voiced such an oath. It seemed totally out of context with the image presented of the little girl. One whose heart is filled with love would more believably utter something tender, perhaps a plea to forgive. Just my opinion of course.
