What She Wanted

Flash fiction is something that Bhavya and I both love writing. To write a story in 55 words is fun, and challenging at the same time. We’re trying to write 55 Fiction for Week 4 of the Ultimate Blog Challenge in July. We’re doing posts on the same theme each day (like A to Z in April). The theme she chose for Day 21 is BUTTERFLY.


It had flown into her bedroom one morning, and she had wanted one after that.

This one had the most colorful wings she had ever seen… yellow and pink, blue and green.

It was time. She took the knife, and sliced.

β€œHappy birthday, Sneha!” came the chorus, as she cut into the butterfly shaped cake.

Poetry & writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.
