Read Nusquam’s winning entry and other creative works here:
*I think what initially attracted me to Nusquam Esse’s piece is the first line: As children, do we realize what a father does? There are many things we take for granted as children–plus, I wanted to know what it was in particular that this father did to make him story worthy.
Then Esse goes on to talk about a seed. A seed his father has tried desperately to grow in the harshest of conditions. Will he succeed? Is he crazy? Why is this tiny seed so important?
And the ending is both ironic and bittersweet.
