The bare trees against the gray sky
seem like sculpture in a dream
as he sits on the sofa
scribbling in a small notebook,
the aroma of sizzling fish in a pan on the stove across the room in the kitchenette
reminds him of carefree childhood
in his mother’s kitchen.
Soon it will be summer.
Hello hello hello, all my fans on Facebook and Twitter and my Flash Fiction Fanatics. The Old Soldier is obsessed with flash fiction but he has not given up on poetry. I figure the better you are at poetry the better flash fiction writer you will be. It is all about distilled language.
It’s around 2:00 PM on a cloudy day in Pittsburgh, the high is supposed to be around 61.
I hope all is well with you. If you like reading short stories or if you write short stories, you will like this blog. It is all about blogging and writing and the pain and joy of life.
