Her head showed a distinct indentation of hammer.
“She will live but she will never be able to use that arm again” the ER doc sighed with relief.
“Over my dead body …” she shouted
That was the last thing the nosy neighbor heard before she heard the chainsaw whir
“9-1-1 an accident is about to…”
I’ve been having chainsaw dreams ever since I borrowed my friend’s chainsaw to do some cleanup. So what better way to use 55 words for Friday Flash Fiction. Happy Spring cleaning to all and to Mr G who spring cleans on a Harley
A day of reference in the Roman calendar like the Kalends or the Nones except in this case a day where one man is plagued by prophecy…
“What does a mere mortal know about life or death?” Julius grimaces
“He will believe he is safe with us. Let’s make his last moments memorable.” The best of the ’44 is poured.
Friday Flash Fiction (hosted each week by the G-Man) is a fun and challenging way to put your skill to the test by writing a story in 55 words. Happy Ides of March to one and all.
The stakes can be high in a game of dice
They had fallen
fate placed in your hands
How would the outcome have been different?
Would the sacrifice have been this high?
For the dice would never had spilt innocent blood had I rolled
But you are the high roller
caring little for the lives of others
only caring for
Thanks to the weekly fun hosted by G-Man flash fiction at its best
Reality can hit hard superficiality of the world harder. Does anyone not wear a mask?
The room was filled with smiling faces
Each appeared so sincere
Every eye filled with laughter
“Why do I feel out-of-place?” she wondered
It seemed every where she went she never belonged
Then by chance she happened to see a placard on her way out
“leave your masks at the door when you leave!”

A last embrace -The poignant end of life for an elderly couple this week .
We had been listening to oldies on our favorite radio station
I caught the glisten in his eyes and heard “I love you honey thanks…”
A long time ago I had almost left
He’d begged for another chance
he stopped drinking and became a totally different man
Earlier this week in the news: An elderly couple died in a final embrace this week after they had been in a fatal car accident.
Thanks to G-Man for the weekly challenge to write a story in 55 words.
they felt the impact but didnt see it
You look into my eyes so much trust, more hope.
Peering over my glasses into blue tear filled eyes.
What can I do to erase the tears ~
where sorrow lays?
I look at my note pad – it’s empty!
Suddenly I feel tears
Your tears are now mine
you are set free
It’s another week of Friday 55 Flash Fiction hosted by the coast to coast host – G-Man. Join us as we write fiction in 55 words.

… and with them
last vestige of hope
swept away in the current
a stormy existence
That life boat
in the haze
called to me
… and so
caught in the current
below the waves
the end will come soon
for what is there
to give me breath
thank you for …
a momentary ray
on that little boat
…and you must
… and you!!!
Each Friday is awesome – many writers and bloggers get together and write a story in a mere 55 words. This piece is a little more prose and symbolic in nature. Thank you to G-Man for hosting weekly!

She knew the music by heart
motioning to the man on the sound board
“can we do one run through first?
I want this recording perfect.”
He tweeked the settings pulling out her rich contralto tones.
“I’m ready,” she signaled head phones in place
She sang her heart out for her friend
“Happy Birthday Chris”
This 55 Flash Fiction is dedicated to a talented writer and photographer who I have the honor of working with At One Stop Poetry – Happy Birthday Chris Galford.
Thanks to G-Man for the weekly opportunity to write Flash Fiction in a mere 55 words.
