FICTION IN A FLASH CHALLENGE #13

Welcome to today’s blog. Once again, author, Suzanne Burke offers a flash fiction challenge based on a photo prompt. Everyone is welcome to participate. https://sooozburkeauthor.wordpress.com/

This week’s photo prompt created many stories and poems in my mind, but I finally chose to write a Tanka poem about magic, healing, and the beauty of nature. A Tanka poem is one flowing, unbroken line with 31 syllables separated into 5/7/5/7/7 parts. The actual photo prompt is nestled in the lower right corner of the larger photo.

WALKING IN THE WOODS

I SEE A MAGICAL KEY

 ON THE FOREST FLOOR

THAT WHEN MY FINGERS TOUCHED IT

MY DISEASED BODY WAS HEALED.

I always enjoy reading your comments from which I find encouragement and support. In this time of world troubles, I rely on positivity, faith, and magic. How do you cope during these days? If you found a key, would it bringing healing, love, or would it just be a key?

My thanks to Suzanne Burke, who provides these flash fiction opportunities on a regular basis. She is an award-winning author of several books. https://sooozburkeauthor.wordpress.com/
