My entry for Bluebells Books Flash Fiction
Each time the beam of light from the lighthouse cast its glow through her window, lighting up the faces of her children and grandchildren, she felt sad for them. There they stood solemn, crying while they watched someone they loved wither away. How hard it must be she thought, and yet she lay there, with her dying heart missing yet another beat, filled with excitement. Oh how she’d lived this life, the life given after the one she had longed for vanished with his sails on the horizon. She had loved them all; given them all she could give, save that small part that had ached, these 80 odd years.
Now as she heard his voice, a slight whisper on the ocean breeze. “Carolyne, Carolyne,” she smiled. Her last heartbeat skipped onto that beach and there she waited, just as she had waited all those years ago. Her golden hair flowing, her dress billowing with the breeze and his heart was returning to the shore to be with her again.
Here’s my first entry in the Bluebells Book Flash Fiction/poetyr
not sure what yer call this un…
Yeah, once the ol body could take this ridin…not no more.
I leave it to the youngens.
I let em wrestle them steers, now
Takes all my time to get on ol blue ere
Geez, I cain’t even get orff this damn horse without nearly bustin a hip
There was a time… ah I was true grit…ah… those were the days…
Doc says, I got the arthritis…hell…come that cold wind
I just freeze right up… ice cube in a tray… no movement at all
Is not right…well ya cain’t stop what’s comin…as they say…
So…hell…I’ll just sit right here on ole Blue…he ain’t goin nowhere
We can gaze out across that prairie
I reckon I could darn near become legend
A cowboy frozen in time
Yeah…ya cain’t stop what’s comin…
