The Passage Way - Five Sentence Fiction


I recently discovered Lillie McFerrin's blog and her five sentence fiction prompts. Eager to give it a go, I finally managed to find a few spare minutes to put something together. Take a moment to stop by her blog, where there are links to many participants creating their own five sentence fiction.

This week's prompt: Abandoned (which is accompanied by a photo)


The Passage Way 

Strong and sturdy metal with floors of wood, erected long ago, supplied passage for many creatures. The river roared and raged, more than once rising above its capacity, taking lives and stealing dreams. Memories, snagged and torn, remain tied to the structure in eternal pain. Crumbled and lonely, the only visits are from the wind and rain scouring away at its very being. The passage way waits for final destruction, a departing of its soul.

Have you tried other prompts? Do you find prompts to be good creative exercises? Feel free to share your thoughts below.

Nice, Cher. I agree, very poetic. Pulled me in.

I love these prompts. It's surprisingly fascinating to see an excerpt of one's work standing alone and gaining reaction.

McGuffy Ann, Thank you. You also have a nice slice of writing from this prompt.

Joylene,

Thank you. Prompts are great for both the results and the creative exercising of the brain.

Loved the picture being created. The fight for existence; holding on with every ounce of strength still present and knowing the end will soon be approaching.

Cher Green said...
