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.
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
