Flash Friday Fictioneers

Lost and Found

Sarah noticed the yellowed remains of the hive clung to the rock still.  In spite of the scourge of winter’s icy wind, it stood, a steadfast reminder of summer’s heyday. No buzz, no thrumming wings announcing life inside, no baby moving in her womb any longer. She closed her eyes. Silence joined her in mourning what had been lost. 

Objective: 100 words in response to the picture prompt. I value your feedback!

  1. The first that focused on the wasp nest – oh but you shifted it into something so much stronger, a tale of loss too deep to describe. Excellent writing.

  2. Dear Erin,

    Your story was poignant and moving, fitting for the day and a sad remembrance of summer past and life’s possibilities lost. Very nicely done.

    By the way, welcome aboard.



  3. Very poignant, and so much was spoken in so few words. Thanks for joining us 🙂 Hope to see you again this week!
