flash Fiction Friday- fleeting moments

Every Friday write a short story of 55 words, no more
no less and then report it to the G-Man!!

"hues of grey and streaks of orange in the evening sky
the fleeting smell of rain and the distant clap of thunder
in the warmth of a soft blanket to cuddle and surrender
as gratitude sets in and my worries slip away i smile
wishing and hoping this moment would last for a long while"

here you go g-man, i sort of found my muse in an old friend while looking out my evening window. i think the dragons used to do this type of 55 where you took eleven words per line and had five lines, though they always used quilly words, alas i do not have a quilly dictionary but i do remember dr. john and the dragons and how they would always, always get to you first. fleeting moments of friendship, serenity, life and memories i am feeling a bit nostalgic now. funny how you can care fore someone you never even met. but through this blog i know so many wonderful people. i am glad you invited me to play this flash fiction friday game, i truly enjoy it when i get to take the time to read and comment on everyones clever words. i really like it that you all take the time to come and read my thoughts as well. this is such a wonderful part of this journey called life.

Todays thought;
There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.
Albert Einstein

I respect you so very much you don't even know.
You are so upbeat and positive.
You address your Demons, and always seem to work them out.
You are a very loving Mom
A Fantastic Partner in love
A loving Daughter.
You are just filled with Love and Gratitude. You are always a breath of fresh air.
You have always been a loyal supporter.
I am eternally grateful to you for setting such a wonderful and brave example of how to change from despair to elation by sheer perserverance and faith.
You Rock The Great Plains Baby.
Have a Kick Ass Week-End...G-Daddy

Beauty in nature often makes me melancholy so I really enjoyed your 55 very much and how you came to craft it.

Love einsteins quotes!!!

Eric Alder said...

Your 55 evokes thoughts of autumn (always a win in my book) and is coincidentally akin to my own 55.

Have a great weekend!
