Flash Fiction Friday, November 1, 2013 ~ Love’s Revelry

Today is Flash Fiction Friday. Our writer challenge is to take a photo, common to all the participating authors, and write a 100 word inspiration piece. Today's photo is of the awe inspiring Christopher Meloni, in the shower no less....and naked!! Who wouldn't be moved by that image??

So, please read my piece and comment if you feel so inclined. I enjoy critiques, good or bad, as they help me to improve. Then jump over to all the other author's blogs to read their inspirations. You can use the link above or access them below, listed like heartbroken tears on a cheek ~ one by one.
Love's Revelry
My favorite time of a day has always been the early morning hours when I awaken to you in the shower. Hearing the water, I smiled into your pillow and inhaled the secrets we shared in our passion filled nights.

My revelry shattered slowly as I cried into reality. 

But how?  I smelled your lathered soap, your shampoo. My face buried in your pillow, I visualized your every morning movement: shaving, your routine of applying a manly deodorant followed by your private indulgence of rich facial cream, cologne then baby powder, humming quietly to yourself.

Today, the rain woke me……………….


  1. Very Beautiful and refreshing post after a long Interval . Thank you sweet Muffy Ji loved it

  2. You awakened my senses with this flash, Muffy. Really well done. It's so sad, the shower didn't wake her, it was the rain. Where is he? I need more please. More!

  3. This flash had begun your road back to recovered better health. Once again beautifully written with sadness and disappointment with the end, bringing rain into her awakened state from the dream she cherished. Well done my beautiful friend.

  4. very emotional scene with bittersweet sadness. I wonder what happened to him

  5. Beautiful, sensual and painful. Much emotion captured in just a few words.

  6. Fantastic flash. Remembrance so strong. She must have borne such great love for him


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