55 Flash Fiction Friday...

Balanced precariously on the edge
a mile wide chasm gaping before me;
to step, or not to step.

The fall holds no interest
only the view; a kaleidoscope
vortex of past, present and future
clothed in diaphanous dreams

Pearlescent possibilities born on
the rise--a rare blue moon
rich
inexhaustible
compelling

Take flight, my heart begs.







If you've written 55 words, no more no less, drop
in on G-Man, leave a comment and he will happily
pay you a visit.




Love,

  14. I liked the ending: "Take flight, my heart begs." In order to pursue the possibilities in life we need to take flight our we remain unchanged.
