In a Flash (55 Fiction)

When no longer expecting to win, life humbles with random accidents seeming to happen in a flash.Β  As when lines of sight, puzzled together, show more than yourself and the way. Moments lasting forever or so it’s just thinking, connecting, feelings to living. Finding the future in the present of the world now shouting “Surprise!”

Care for a Reading?

  13. This is very well done Adam! Was it sponaneous? it has that feel

    As when lines of sight, puzzled together, show more than yourself and the way. Moments lasting forever …..

    I like how you got poetry into these lines:) you are so good with this Flash Fiction Adam (may have to have another go at this myself) and I love the ‘Surprise at the end:) Well done!

  14. Lynda, the other day I had a moment; not sure if it was coincidence. Thought I realized something very important in a normal, unassuming momentβ€”like the puzzle pieces of my life revealed a complete picture for a instant…. so I wrote about that feeling.

    Perhaps the reason I’ve taken to the FF 55 is from writing so many tweets last year. After struggling to make sense in 140 characters, 55 words becomes a blessing. BTW-loved that paper mache video…

  15. I love this! This would have paired nicely with the photo in your pondering post, also, I think.

  16. I think you’re right. “Pondering” and “In a Flash” have similar tones and messages. I haven’t used a picture on a Flash 55 yet. Honestly, I’m running out of photos and must take more ASAP lol

  17. Hello Adam,
    Just a note to let you know with the stint Larry went from a 90% blockage to the kidneys to a 0% blockage. He is doing great now and I am praying he will be coming home today.

    Love Vi

  18. Thank you for your prayers.

  19. Yes!!! πŸ™‚

    Viola, my best to Larry. Whew…. What a great weekend!
