Fandango’s Flash Fiction Challenge #161

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 photograph below is from NaughtyCupcakes at

For the visually challenged writer, the photo is of an old, abandoned church. The plaster is peeling from the walls and the ceiling and there is debris on the floor, but the five beautiful, arched stained glass window are intact.

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.

    Sam Adams
    Was an occult follower
    One day he attended
    The secret rites
    Of an ancient cult
    Dedicated to Cthulu
    They chanted verses
    From the Necromicron
    And drinking from a black
    Skull like chalice
    In an old abandoned church
    As the full moon streamed
    Through the stained glass windows
    They summoned Cthulu
    Promising their live
    To ensure that he would
    Come again to rule the earth.

    This is what I came over here for…and got all tangled up in the discussion about book-banning, etc 🙂 It’s a gorgeous image–I’ll think up a poem for it 🙂
