Friday 5/28/10 - "NOT HERE"




FLASH FICTION FRIDAY 55





"NOT HERE"


Her flowing auburn hair fanned out over the white silk pillow.

Her richly brocaded blouse seemed to sparkle and vibrate with life.

Her eyes are closed, no movement of the silky top.

All this beauty is in stark contrast to gray, plastic skin.

Prayer Girl

(This 55 came to life as a result of my being at a funeral yesterday evening for a beautiful 46 year young woman who finally lost her two year battle with the type of cancer that killed Farrah Fawcett. I was introduced to her by one of my sponsees and I only met her twice, but the first time I saw her I placed my hands on her. That created a special bond between us that I don't understand. I loved her.)


Flash Fiction Friday is hosted by G-Man.

You have created a bond with many, many Peeps. Thankfully, most of them are still alive.

May God bless the young lady who died, a beautiful Peep, both inside and out....

So sorry to hear about this. I don't like open casket funerals. Seeing the dead person dressed up is just too much for me.
