Fandango’s Flash Fiction Challenge #114- Second take


Welcome to “Fandango’s Flash Fiction Challenge.” Each week I will be posting a photo I grab off the internet and challenging bloggers to write a flash fiction piece or a poem inspired by the photo. There are no style or word limits.

The image below is from Pixabay.For the visually challenged writer, the photo shows a man staring pensively out of a round window.


He looked out the cabin window fixedly. The glimmer of tears was visible even from afar. What was going on in his mind was an easy guess. If anyone looked the picture of regret, he did.

The door behind him opened and a little girl came in to sit beside him on the wooden bench.

“Why are you so sad, papa?”

“I am going to miss all this when we move away,” he said. His daughter was just five and he didn’t want to burden her with his regrets. So he smiled at her upturned face and said in a cheerful voice, ” You will love our new home, munchkin. And you’ll make a lot of new friends”

“I miss mom too,” she said as she put her hand into his.
