More Flash Fiction

Here’s another great blog, Eric Alagan’s this one, for writers of flash fiction to display their work.

The challenge this time is to write a short piece, exactly 55 words long inspired by a photographic image of the phases of the moon.
This is mine.

Night terrors

Still night, calm sea, full moon.
Fathers in fitful sleep clutch weapons tight.
Mothers hush crying children, listening
For the splash of oars, boots crunching on the strand.

Storm wind, high sea, moonless night, the watch slumbers.
Mothers, fathers sleep while thunder roars and waves crash on black rocks.
Dragon ships will not come tonight.
