Welcome to the Flash Fiction for the Purposeful Practitioner Home Site hosted by Roger Shipp.
Flash Fiction for the Purposeful Practitioner is a weekly writing challenge designed for both the flash fiction newbie and the more experienced writer. It is the desire of this challenge to allow writers the opportunity to clear the cobwebs from a more tedious and involved project. Becoming a part of a new and growing writer’s community might be just what the doctor ordered to rejuvenate your writing juices.
She was most highly respected, not just because of her age, but her kindness, compassion and devotion to her village.
Few could remember her being young, her parents and siblings had long since passed, and she had never borne children of her own.
Yet she was Mother to hundreds, if not thousands, and she loved them all, as they did her.
Outspoken, but honest,
Loyal to those she loved.
Dazzling eyes missed nothing,
Laughter echoed for hours,
Amusement in every smile,
Duty bound as an Elder
Young at heart forever.
