Flash Fiction Friday, September 20, 2013 ~ Dance

Today is Flash Fiction Friday in our group of notable notables.  We write 100 words, no more no less, from the inspiration of a single selected photo, common to us all. I love, love, love this photograph. This one reminded me of Father.

I would appreciate it, and consider it a personal favor, if you would read and comment on each of our interpretations of this photograph.  We are all so delectably deliciously different.  You never know what morsel you might find.  You can jump to each post through this link, Flasher Fiction Friday, or I have them listed like notes on the score from a love song listed below. 

Before you depart, please leave me a comment. Your encouragement means so much to me, but do be honest. Twinkle, twinkle little sorrowful note.

Her body responded, as the music seduced her sorrows.  She began to stand. The intoxicating melody unfolded the petals of her body as she heard, in a whisper:


So, please follow the writers links listed below and read their interpretations of this wonderful photo. I can assure you that from past experience, we have all written completely something different.  And...isn't that entertainment?


  1. Oh Muffy, you made me cry. This is beautiful :-)

  2. Loved it. Very beautiful, descriptive writing.

  3. I want to cry. This is so beautiful. The emotion you write about her feelings when a piece of music plays is fabulous. Music can be a powerful entity, stirring up all manner of emotions that may lay dormant as well as fond memories. I salute your flasher.

I was born when we kissed; I died when we parted. I lived in your embrace while we loved..........
