Friday Flash 55

Blinking at the tower of pine caskets on the sidewalk, I wondered which one belonged to Timmy. The wind kicked up a pungent smell as dry leaves created a tiny tornado at the base of the stack of boxes. I shoved my hands deeper into the pockets of my jacket and turned to walk home.

    Alright!!! Where did my comment go. I didn’t curse our anything–I was really good this time. (bottom lip out)

      I’m beginning to think it sends things to spam that repetitive. I had something repetitive in someone else’s post and it sent it to spam. You have 55. I know, so dumb, but I think that’s what’s happening.

      You must have a knack for using double characters! 😀

    This is an excellent opening paragraph. You have a knack for imagery. I still remember the stained glass window in a previous Flash 55.

      Really? Thanks!! That’s a compliment, that someone would remember something you wrote a while later…

    I thought so! As I was reading I said, man this sounds like part of Kathan’s book. Then as I clicked to respond I saw your respose to Natasha.

    Excellent opening paragraph. Very powerful with incredible hook.

      Cool – this is one of those things where I had the idea, and then wrote it, and I don’t think it sounded as good on paper as it did in my head. But I’m leaving as is for now.

    Sniff. This really does touch a nerve, and packs a wallop with its gentle imagery.
