#Flash Fiction Challenge for Carrot Ranch Literary Community #Poetry

March 25 2021, prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less), write an escape. It can be daring or subtle. Who is escaping from what and why? Go where the prompt leads!

Over the past few months

I have felt like a caged bird

I will be 75 come the beginning of April

I cannot wait to get outside

To pop into my charity shops

See my wonderful ladies smiling

Pick up the odd piece or two

For me, this is my big escape

I have to make the most of every minute

Never knowing how many I have left

My son will take me from the confines

of my four walls to the coast

A bag of hot salty chips in my hand

As proof I made it outside, free…
