‘Fiction In A Flash Challenge 2021.’ Week #35 Entry Part 4) by D.L.Finn @dlfinnauthor #IARTG #WritingPrompts #FlashFiction #WritingCommunity

Hello everyone and a warm welcome to Part 4) of the entries for my weekly: “Fiction in A Flash Challenge 2021.  Week #35.
Today I’m featuring a contribution By D L Finn.
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 D.L.Finns contribution.

I’m using one of my favorite poetry formats, a Haibun. It is a combination of a prose paragraph, and a Haiku/Senryu 5/7/5.

The candles lit up the occasion. Each one was carefully placed as it had been sixty years ago on our honeymoon. The soft glow of the lights invited the trees into our private realm. Your beloved books awaited your eager fingers to turn their pages. The dress that brought the blue out in your eyes was protected in the cedar chest. Wine from Italy, aged cheese, and truffles were on the china we received as a gift when we exchanged our vows. The quilt, lovingly sewn by your mother, was spread across the freshly mown grass. The last thing I added was a triangle that pointed upward to the full strawberry moon. I said the magical words that connected us and struck the special match that ignited the fairy’s lamp. Then I waited.

You return to me

On the day of our wedding,

When love transcends death.

  1. Hi, how do I submit a piece of flash fiction?

    I have attached my piece in response to prompt #35 but I’m not sure if this is the correct way to submit something?

    Thank you in anticipation of your consideration

  2. Hi, if this is the way to submit something for your flash challenge, can I retract the piece I sent yesterday? I have made some changes.

    Thanks Kirsten
