Aug 2, Flash Fiction Challenge

August 2, 2018, prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less) write a story that includes a yellow tent. Where is it and who does it belong to? Think of how the color adds to the story. Go where the prompt leads.

It was sunshine in a sky of green, brown and grey,
A golden globe to feast your eyes on and aim for.
It was the smile that shone through on a rainy day,
The honey pot to attract the bees, and more.
A symbol of hope and simplistic clarity,
A bright star on which you could depend and wish,
It stood out like no other, a guide and a beacon,
There would never be another quite like this.
There was an inner magic,
Built on devotion and love,
Was it no wonder then
It could be seen from above?


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
