#Flash Fiction Challenge for Carrot Ranch Literary Community #Poetry

April 1: Flash Fiction Challenge

April 1 2021, prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less), write a story about a swift passage. You can take inspiration from any source. Who is going where and why. What makes it swift? Go where the prompt leads!

The red flame of life, love, spirituality,

the journey taken with friends

Has too swiftly been blown out.

The echoes remain, words, wisdom, and kindness.

They stay, like a pic and mix

Sending that strange thought to mind

Words written, that meant so much more,

Because of the space between

Reading the white space between her words

Feels like the sudden scent of a bowl of potpourri

Letting you know she doesn’t forget

The time spent with family, friends.

The journey forward may be swift

Her zest for life, too strong to prevent her

Returning for one more go…
