In Flight

Lillie McFerrin Writes




What it’s all about: Five Sentence Fiction is about packing a powerful punch in a tiny fist. Each week I will post a one word inspiration, then anyone wishing to participate will write a five sentence story based on the prompt word. The word does not have to appear in your five sentences, just use it for direction.

This week: FLIGHT


Spreading it’s wings, ready to take flight, perched an Eagle.  As the sun bounced off the tree tops, an amazing glow seemed to surround the tree where the Eagle stood.  I watched this brilliant creature as it proudly stuck it’s chest out. Before I could blink, the bird was soaring higher than the mountains.  I could feel it’s pride, long after it had vanished from my sight.


side note:  This is a correction to yesterday’s post where I mistook 5 sentences for 5 words.  Thank you all for pointing it out and hopefully this post is better.
