Also, here’s one I wrote (inspired by Jim Harrison’s poem “The Bridge”):
For decades, they just called her The Book Lady. No one knew her actual name. Her whole house, it seemed, made of books. They blocked the windows, spilled onto her porch. All genres. Then, one periwinkle evening, they watched her building something. It started small, just some classics. Dozens of different editions of Little Women. A bridge into the sky. Each day, she built it: mysteries, dystopias, romance, fantasy, spy thrillers. The YA made for a spill of candy-color into the night. For weeks, she stacked and stacked, her windows reappearing, her porch clean.
Then she walked into the sky.
