Desperate Measures

Today’s One Shoot Sunday Poetry challenge: Write a poem (or Flash Fiction 55) based on 1 of Fee Easton's photos out of the 5

     In a last ditch effort, I snatched off Grendella's hood and with a flick of the wrist, she took flight.  Her majestic form gained altitude quickly, and I hoped the inexperienced rearguard would notice her signal and send reinforcement.  All seemed lost...

      "For the black lion!"  Accompanied a cacophonous clash of steel, which littered the ground with torn body parts and dented or broken armor.


  1. ewwwwwwww and yay all at once, what happens(ed) next?!?!?!

  2. Cool interjection to begin the second half, tying it all together—nice microfiction!

  3. nice...for the lion...are we in narnia? smiles.

  4. Totally Cool, I've seen many of the flash fiction 55's and I really admire the people that can put a colorful a story in so small a package. Simply put, I cannot do it.

  5. @Beach Bum: Thanks, high praise coming from you, with the tales I've seen you put together
