Flash Fiction Friday 55

is over
the tinsel
and baubles
packed away.
Fluffy red hats and 
wellington boots never
suited the southern hemisphere
anyway. The stores all have their 50%
sales - getting rid of Christmas stock so soon?
Nothing Lasts Forever. Isn’t it sad and heart-breaking
that its all over so quickly?

Head on over to G-Man and sign up for Flash Fiction Friday. 
 Its easy, you try to write a complete story in 55 words.

One more comment, Ernest Hemingway was once prodded to compose a complete story in six words. His answer, personally felt to be his best prose ever, was "For sale: baby shoes, never used." Some people say it was to settle a bar bet. Others say it was a personal challenge directed at other famous authors.

Thought you might like to know that. Here is one website:

Clever, witty, artistic and very poetic on several levels. Nicely crafted 55 enjoyed the visual and the read.
