Flash Fiction Friday, September 12, 2014 ~ A Love So Light in Darkness

I love Flash Fiction Friday and this week I honor the new beginning of each new day and also each arriving, recuperative night. A marvelously talented group of authors congregate every Friday around a single photo prompt to write a limited 100 word inspiration piece we call flash fiction. Our photograph this week is below. How does she speak to you? She conjured up Mother Nature to me.

Mother Nature is a beautiful woman and mother to us all. She nurtures, restores, replenishes, reprimands and shows us her restorative love, and occasionally her wrath, unselfishly with the turn of each day and night. So, I hope you enjoy this wee 100 words. ~  ☼ o√ ¸.¨¯`*..*˜"*°



A Love So Light in Darkness

The platinum orb rises slowly above the burning, flaming horizon. The moon so loves the sun because it dies each day that the moon may rise another night to honor the darkness.

She blossoms as the day withers and fades into the black satin folds of the moon’s embrace. Like the moon, she is refreshed in the shadows, adorned by diamonds and surrounded by glittering, shooting madness.

Her joy ignites as the stars unveil their jewel-like splendor.

Inevitably, a midnight tear bids adieu to a love so light in darkness with the fall of the morning moon to welcome her fiery radiance anew.

  2. I had to read this flash three times to capture the full effect of your imaginitive creation. You captured one of the most beautiful love affairs in nature. I love this sentence but they all were fabulous. "Like the moon, she is refreshed in the shadows, adorned by diamonds and surrounded by glittering, shooting madness." Especially the "glittering, shooting madness. Outstanding!

    1. You are too much, Pablo! When I wrote this, I wasn't even sure what it meant, until I tweaked it. Of course, she is one and the same, but prefers the restorative effects of the night. But, how you do flatter me. Thank you so much for your kind and very generous comments. You make me blush into my bosom. xo
