*I have seen several of these across the blogosphere lately, and have even joined in on a few, so I thought I would come up with my own, and see if it kickstarts anyone else’s imagination as well. The idea is to write a piece of flash fiction of exactly 50 words based on the picture that heads this post. I selected the image at random off the web, along with a few others, and then just started writing. Feel free to write your own either in your own blog (put a link so we can all go read it) or within the comments on this post. Hope you enjoy!*
I stood on the edge of the pond, the isolation and still waters a pale reflection of my feelings dead ended in this life. I wanted to just wade in, first to my waist, then my neck, and finally over my head. Maybe the mermaids would save me, maybe not.
