FICTION IN A FLASH CHALLENGE 2021. WEEK #33. #IARTG #FlashFiction #WritingCommunity #WritingPrompts @pursoot

Award-winning author Suzanne Burke has presented another photo prompt for this week. To learn more about her opportunities for you to share your responses to a photo go to Join the fun!

Here is my Tanka poem based on the photo prompt.

Cherishing each day is an important part of my life. When I was diagnosed with cancer, I made a conscious decision to live each moment with love as best as I could. There is a wonderful song by Jason Mraz titled “Living in the Moment,” which describes my philosophy so beautifully. Here it is for you to enjoy!

Thank you, Suzanne Burke for giving me the opportunity to be a part of this weeks Fiction in a Flash challenge.

FICTION IN A FLASH CHALLENGE #23 @pursoot #Writing Community #IARTG #ASMSG

My thanks to Suzanne Burke for this week’s fiction in a flash challenge. The photo prompt is beautiful and from it I was inspired to write the following Tanka poem.

I'm falling, falling
My fears hold me back from life
I'm trying, trying
To overcome and be free.

I'm praying, praying
Til fears are gone and I'm free
While angels guide me
To a life free from falling.

Like a waterfall
I now bring joy and beauty
To those who see me
Living life fully with love.

When you look at the photo prompt, what thoughts, emotions come to you? Does my poem speak to you in any special way? Have you experienced times of feeling lost and afraid? I welcome your comments.

I invite you to go to Suzanne Burke’s website and learn about this talented and award-winning author.
