Joy of Words: #2



On Monday, I posted six words for “Joy of Words” flash fiction.  It seems only right that I come up with some piece of 50 words or less.  So here goes:


Viewing disappearing tracks, I sensed that in this place, past and present merged, overlapped.  I inhaled cold winter air filled with memories of winters past.  An indistinct longing swept through me.  Stepping onto uneven ground, I set out to discover where I belonged.

  1. A terrific picture. It sort of looks like a Thomas Kincaid picture without the colour. Nice choice of words as well.

    1. That's how I felt, too: Thomas Kincaid. He will be missed.

  3. Wow that is a great pic and great 50 words too. Even if I hate snow, not a bad view.

  6. I love this post!! The photo, the brevity, both are so powerful! It's as if I could just step into the photo and begin my own journey to self discovery through your words.

    Thanks for sharing!

  7. Brilliantly illustrated, brilliantly executed. Thank you. I think I have missed the boat this week. I will aim for next Wednesday. A huge thank you to you and Delores for starting this meme running.

  8. I would like to jump into the screen and get on this scene.

    I find your Flash Fiction posts brilliant, particularly because I very much lack the skills for that sort of thing.

    1. What I like about 50 words is that each word is important. Scratch all the "the, it, is, etc." but search for a specific word that meets the need. Write a couple and see what happens!
