Every Friday authors from around the world gather around the virtual fireside of fellow WordPress blogger Rochelle Wisoff to share flash fiction stories of 100 words, all inspired – regardless of genre – by a common photograph, and exchange constructive criticism. Readers’ comments are also welcome.
This week’s photo prompt comes from Renee Heath. Thanks Renee. Here’s the story the photo inspired:
In a Moment
Don’t Walk! A woman in green slams on her brakes. A girl dashes into her future. The gossamer disc of her skirt swirls. A shadow ruddies the sun. The red of the hydrant deepens. The blushing brick of the Bidwell dulls. The lush wink of the Boost’s logo turns bright as blood. The gleeful balloons of the street lamps pirouette, freed to pursue the gossamer circle as it gushes, shape-shifting, into crimson-winged and feathered air. Up and up goes the gossamer, colour-shifting like light through glass, stained; and diminishes, then vanishes.
