Friday 55 - I'm Late!

Here I sit feeding a duck from a pier.
It slipped my mind that my 55 should appear.
All wrapped up in this duck
feeding him bread and watching him swim,
I lost count of time and remembered I need wine.
I needed a brew to help the adults stew and dance by the fire.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Flash Fiction Friday
Every Friday, (But late 'cause it's Saturday)
I compose a short story of 55 words - no more, no less.
If you want to join in the fun and games and give it a try...
post your story and report to the boss
G-Man!

We're going early in the morning to a swap meet to get more ducks and some geese for our pond.

I love them!!:-)

I reel at the terrifying possibility that I might come up with the perfect story but that it's 56 words.

Less ducks 'round these parts, finally getting cold!

Great poem, great picture and great idea. Hope you're well. I was in Oxford, Tupelo and Corinth last month. My Dad passed away -- he was 86 and had cancer. He told me he had had a good life. I was so happy. Got some nice pictures while there: http://www.flickr.com/photos/don-iannone/sets/

I keep thinking I might try the Flash Fiction Friday but I am so chatty, so wordy I probably would only get the title written and be over the word limit! Good job - nice picture!

care should be taken when dealing with ducks..... there are, of course, normal innocent ducks..... and then there are devil ducks..... devil ducks in action.....

Don: So you were in my neck of the woods! Condolences for the reason but hope you felt comfort in the blankets of green.

Shinade: I love them too, probably too much since they are almost too fat to float!

Liquid said...

Coltfan: You and Michelle are welcome to come play in my ponds. We have a plenty!

Liquid said...

Deb: Just do it! Hey, I am such a diing wad that I cannot even count the words sometimes. But, I'll keep posting! Come on, Deb........DO IT! Just once and you too will be hooked! Please!

Liquid said...

Ghost: Shuck a duck, quack quack!

Very cool. I like the strict and very brief word limit. Ya done good and have inspired me to try one myself (after I finish watching polling data and electoral maps).
