#Flash Fiction – Free At Last!

Nox’s Daily Prompt

Moments within sitting down
The ground absorbed her tension
brought about from her mental prison
Refocusing her energy
from the disenchantment of cynicism
to the spontaneity of curiosity
Gazing out in the endless sea ahead
Reaching for a new ideal
One that sparks a more joyous life
Basking in the healing rays of the sunset
Dreaming of the next adventure
Relishing the breeze
Enriched by tranquil surroundings
Delighting in the grains of sand
between her fingers that soothes her soul
Serenity in abundance
Unseen until now
Instinctively understanding
the momentum of
each precious moment
in the spectrum of time

    Wonderful job! Especially love your last 8 lines, “Delighting in the grains of sand…”

      Thank you! I just felt like the woman in the picture was in tune with the moment by engaging her senses. Similar to taking some time to “stop and smell the roses.” 🙂

      Thank you very much Bob! Love the striking analogy! ❤ My roommate always said that when she first met me, it was like a "gong" moment. 😉
