Suzanne Burke once again has provided an interesting photo prompt from which to write a short story, one-liner, or a poem. This week’s photo was not only beautiful but quickly brought to mind the following Tanka poem. I hope you enjoy it.
THE MAGICAL FOREST THE YOUNG PRETTY LASS HAD BICYCLED FAR FROM HOME SEEKING HAPPINESS IN AN ENCHANTED FOREST OF MAGIC, FAIRIES, AND ELVES. HER BIKE STANDS ALONE WAITING FOR HER TO RETURN BUT EACH DAY PASSES WITHOUT THE YOUNG, PRETTY LASS EVER TO BE SEEN AGAIN. LAUGHTER AND MUSIC FLOATS AMONG THE TREES SO HIGH HEARD BY THOSE WHO PASS BY QUICLY WITH STEPS, FEARFUL OF THE MAGICAL FOREST. THE ONLY MAGIC IS THE HAPPY BEATING HEARTS FILLED WITH LOVE AND JOY FROM THE YOUNG AND PRETTY LASS WHO LIVES WITH HER PRINCE CHARMING.
My thanks to Suzanne Burke who provided these Fiction in a Flash Challenges. I invite you to follow her website and join the fun in writing something based on the photo prompt. https://sooozburkeauthor.wordpress.com/
