Flash fiction - working day

Walking to work I struggle, stumble and stutter through the motions. It’s a constant effort that is rarely worth much. Its winter and so it’s dark, sometimes bitter and always, always dark. These winter morning seem so late, confusing and somehow ironic.

Lunchtime and I stagger into the fresh air, leaving the stale air and yellow light. I’m clinging to the edge of a building, deep in a proverbial segment of my spirit. But for now, I see the sun, feel the breeze and feed my soul with food and literature.

Evening . It’s only 5pm but somehow it’s the end of the day. It’s certainly seemed long enough. I struggle, stumble and stutter, weary from work and tired of being patient. Now it’s the rush to nourish my soul, with entertainment, creativity and love, after a slow and repetitive day. A life repetitive in nature.

Artist's Description

A piece of flash fiction (under 150 words and certainly a challenge. I joined the flash fiction group for that very reason. The challenge of being concise and deliberate with language and imagery. I’m happy with this as my first attempt and look forward to continuing to work this work.

all comments welcome…….
