Friday flash 55


the reeds are halted like tall soldiers in the water
but for an occasional shiver in the breeze
so wind approaches
on a wild horse, riding hard

the reeds bend
as the wind drives forward on its steed
pushing the reeds to the ground
but they stand again when it relents
each one unbroken

    I’m at a lost for words about how much I enjoyed this. It spoke to me on a level I don’t know if I fully understand. The reeds bending but not breaking. How true that is in our lives, we are often tested as the reed in the wind. Very beautiful and well written. The imagery is powerful.

    Yes, I like the imagery too. That’s definitely one of your strengths in writing.
    Nice Wordle! I love the colors.

      Thanks, Dayner. I think it’s one of my strengths, too. I wish I was stronger in other things like plot and character, but we each have our “thing” I guess!
