In the Echo (Flash Fiction 55)

She listened for his voice.

He called, “Where are you?”

The echo seemed to assault

“W_H_E_R_E    A_R_E     Y_O_U?”

“I’m here,”she called back

“I can’t seeee you,” his words echoed desirous

“I’m here…

closer than your next breath”

longing echo whispered in his ear

he could almost feel her

in the echo.

Thanks to G-Man aka Mr Know it All for hosting a great flash fiction each week. We always have fun trying to create a story in 55 words. Come along with us and try your hand.

Author: moondustwriter

Thank you for visiting Moondustwriter. One of the many exciting things I've had the honor of doing is writing and publishing in multiple genres (including education) in E. African for E. Africa. As a writer, it is a thrill to write for children (on all continents) who want to learn. I've been part of the blogging community for more than 13 years. Some old timers may remember the award winning (2011 Twitter Shorty ) blog community - One Stop Poetry. I was the co-producer of that fast growing blog community. I am a published writer, poet, artist and photographer. I have written, as well as edited, for periodicals, radio, blogs and fellow writers. There are many facets to this moon - my joy is in meeting you!

      1. I was wondering is there any anatdvage to use the page ID instead of the page slug? What would you recommend to use on a regular basis? I unusably go with page IDs, but was wondering if there is any real difference when it comes to this function?


  2. reminds me of the time i got lost with my mom in the forests of alaska. the voices bouncing off the trees, misdirecting the search. great timing with this one, leads the reader well.
