 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 Harmony’s Contribution.


Boy to Man

From the boy to the Man,
He’s always done the best he can.

Ever careful of what he might teach or pass on
To his one and only little son.

But betimes life is hard and cruel,
And, at best, it leaves you feeling the fool.

All he’d wanted was for that little palm to grow to fit,
To nurture the figting spirit that never quit.

What to do when the body turns traitor?
When it does no good to rail against the creator?

He holds those tiny fingers and loves the child harder than ever,
And no matter what, they get through this together.

The man cherishes each and every smile and cry of joy,
That shows the staunch heart of this wondrous boy.

  1. This is a beautiful poem, Harmony. The love we have for our children is immeasurable and wonderful, whether we are the dad or the mom. My husband has spent the entire day helping my younger son prepare for his maths examination tomorrow. I helped him study geography on Friday and biology yesterday. We do these things ungrudgingly and willingly.
