‘Fiction In A Flash Challenge 2021.’ Week #42 Entry Part 7) by Jan Sikes @JanSikes3 #Iartg #WritingPrompts #WritingCommunity

Hello everyone and a warm welcome to Entry Part 7) ) for my weekly: “Fiction in A Flash Challenge 2021” Week #42.

Today I’m featuring a contribution by Jan Sikes.

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 the contribution.

TIME

They say time is an illusion

Only existing in our minds

That time to the Universe

Is the greatest joke to mankind

A porcelain jewel, delightfully ornate

Quietly ticking away, and now four-o-eight

Maybe it’s fate, mocking and cruel

For at four-o-seven I lost the numbers pool

My breathing ceased and heart stopped beating

And now I know time is nothing if not fleeting

As softly I float into the warm light

Below a body, once my birthright

That housed my spirit throughout the years

Is now only a shell, as loved ones shed tears

Time is an illusion, or so they say

Yet it marches forward into another day

Don’t take it for granted

Or put off your greatest delight

Before you know it, your spirit will take flight

Illusion or not, time never ceases

With or without you until it releases
