Flash Friday Fiction


Satellite Moon
Though the trees wore mere buds, it was finally Spring.  A full moon lit the sky like a searchlight.  A goddess moon, some said.

This moon connects us all, she thought. We are part of the same clan, we all look to the moon and feel its pull.

“When you see the moon, know that I am looking at the very same thing, and you won’t feel alone” her mother once told her.

Back then, she thought her love would go up to the moon and bounce back down to her mom, like a satellite.

She gazed upward, knowing it was still true.

  1. oh I really love this Erin. How often I’ve said the same thing to one I loved.

    What has you all the way to Brazil? That’s a long way from home. Safe travels!

  2. I often am comforted by knowing my fiance’ sees the same moon as me, even though he’s on the other side of the world right now. Nice story with a futuristic feel to it. I hope you enjoyed Brazil!

Tell me something good.....
