Fandango’s Flash Fiction Challenge #143

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 the Google Photo Frame.

For the visually challenged writer, the image shows a lush, green, tropical landscape in the foreground with a body of water and mountains rising above the surface in the distance. There is also a large, colorful bird flying overhead.

If this week’s image inspires you and you wish to participate, please write your post, use the tag #FFFC, and link back to this post. I hope it will generate some great posts.

Please create a pingback to this post or manually add your link in the comments.

    Although the above hearing isn’t totally concerning the lush tropics, it partly is. And the picture reminded me of a void called “The … {?}’s Wife” — which I read a number of years ago.

    Spell-check software is more and more useless to me by the day; for all the corrections I had to make, I missed that “book” had become void. Meanwhile, I’ve tried to look up the book, and I’m guessing I’ve got the title entirely wrong. It was set in tropical Central and/or South America and, if I remember correctly, was historical fiction and did very well in literary circles.

    Beautiful picture choice Fandango. Maybe the Bird of Paradise is looking for a change of scenery.
