Flash fiction - Circles

This weekend's Trifextra challenge has taken a huge swing up The Happy, Hopeful Hill. Hoorah! 

The photo below is our inspiration and you can read my 33-word effort underneath. Click on the photo to read more entries and be sure to comment and vote - there's some wicked (as in brilliant) imaginations and writing over there. There's also a great 2-minute video showing the passing year. The photo is a compilation by Eirik Solheim of different days throughout the year, taken at the same location in Oslo, Norway. Enjoy!

Circles


Every moment before birth; trees smile, the sun winks, leaves cavort. They may rest, but they always return. Daily, monthly, yearly… Life is a rainbow. Open your eyes; you will be reborn, too.

  1. I love your imagery! Smiling trees, a winking sun and leaves that cavort! And your last line is so perfectly true-that's what nature does for me-helps me feel renewed and reborn! Lovely 33 words!!

    1. Despite its tantrums, nature is never-endingly peaceful for its effect it has on me.

    1. Cheers Draug. I'm happier with sunny prompts than I am with cloudy ones!

  5. Oh, lovely - you did a fantastic job bringing together the two parts of the prompt: the photo/video, and the plea for "soul-soaring happiness."
