FICTION IN A FLASH CHALLENGE #27 @pursoot #Writing Community #IARTG #ASMSG

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.
