FICTION IN A FLASH CHALLENGE 2021. WEEK #32. #IARTG #FlashFiction #WritingCommunity #WritingPrompts @pursoot

It is my pleasure and honor to participate in another flash fiction challenge based on the photo prompt. Award-winning author, Suzanne Burke, has provided these challenges every week. Everyone is invited to write a short story, poem, or a one-liner.

Here is the photo prompt for this week:

And here is my Tanka poem based on the above:

There is a wonderful poem by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, titled “The Sands of Time.” It is a poem that left a large impact on me when I was in high school. Its influence is obviously still with me.

Thank you for visiting my blog today. I welcome your comments.
