Friday 7/9/10 - "THE WAVE"

FLASH FICTION FRIDAY 55




"THE WAVE"




She watched the sea of people.
The "wave" came as thousands in section one arose, raised their arms, cheered the upward motion.

Undulating movement swept through each section till she was standing, arms swinging up, shouting with joy.
Loud music accompanied each nation's flag as it was brought onstage.

The crowd roared; electric, magical, spiritual.

Beautifully written! Glad you had a good time in San Antonio! I lived in Dallas for 10 years during the 80's.

P: Thank you for your wonderful comments about the convention. Seems I am never too far from the connection with you and S. While you were in SA enjoying the convention, I had the call out from Stepdaughter with another episode with her mom who will not seek help and will not admit she has a problem. Alas, all is now quiet and returning to abnormal. Pray for D. and T. and you and S are in mine. Welcome home. J.
