Thank you again to MadisonWoods for all her work and organization. You can visit her site and read through the other Flash Fiction Friday postings at:
For those who are new, MadisonWoods shares a photo prompt to which several #FridayFictioneers will compose a 100-word flash of fiction. Settle upon this wicked wind and stay a while, won’t you?
Here is my contribution:
as does the Monarch from flower to flower flutter,
spreading gentle caresses,
lapping sweet nectar,
unfolding delicate petals,
drinking her coming pollen,
such lovely succulence,
such glorious intoxication,
so does the harbinger from flesh to ripening flesh venture,
tantalized by noxious perfumes,
indulging upon sweetest necrosis,
glutted in the undoing yet not sated,
she rises from death’s bed,
from such rapturous ecstasy,
to dry her quills.
she shrills her victor’s song,
sagely remaining vigilant,
such magnificent poise,
awaiting the devouring of another lover.
