‘Fiction In A Flash Challenge’ Week #22 Entry Part 4) by Roberta Eaton Cheadle @RobertaEaton17 #IARTG #WritingPrompts #WritingCommunity #FlashFiction

Hello everyone and a warm welcome to PART 4)  of the entries for my weekly: “Fiction in A Flash Challenge” Week #22. Today I’m featuring a contribution from Roberta Eaton Cheadle
Last week I set the following Challenge:

Hello everyone and welcome to my new “Fiction in A Flash Challenge!” Each week I’ll be featuring an image and inviting you to write a Flash Fiction or Non-Fiction piece inspired by that image in any format and genre of your choosing.  Maximum word count: 750 words.

Here is the image prompt and Roberta’s Contribution.


I decided to take a very literal interpretation of this prompt and share exactly what I think needs to be said.

How I see

How I see

And how you see

Will differ

How much we differ

Will depend

On how you view

What we both see

Versus how I view

What we both see

That same scene

Could be interpreted

By you

In a most literal

And straight forward way

You could take the path

Well worn by the majority

And embrace it

As your own

I, on the other hand,

May chose to take

A unique approach

Demarcated by difference

The one chosen by few

Or even none other at all

Where you see mild damage

I may see calamity

Where you see death

I may see an new beginning

Where you see straight lines

I may see soft curves

Of great hope

Does this make me wrong

And you right?

If I stand alone

And you concur with many?

Or is there still room

For differing interpretations?

  1. Your poem is perfect for what is going on in the U.S. these days. Differences have become threatening divides. Thank you for capturing how we see through your lovely poem. And thank you, Soooz, for the great prompt! 💙
