WELCOME ! 124th Challenge
Flash Fiction for Aspiring Writers
Week of 07-18 through 07-24-2017


This week’s photo prompt is provided by J.S. Brand

I count the steps.
Every day, they remain the same.
Worn thin by my passing,
Engraved with time, and my shame.
I count the steps,
Thirty in all, one for each year,
Robbed in his prime, I cry
But no-one is likely to hear.
I count the steps,
Never ending in their flight,
I reach the summit to find
Night is day, and day is night.
Endless days without meaning or soul,
This path will never let me forget
Going nowhere and coming back
I count the steps.
I count the steps.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and have a terrible sweet tooth. Best friends are Hubby, our dog Maggie, Bro in NZ, MSM and MOH (and his dog). I am also a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we were once again house hunting until September. We now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.
