Paula of light motifs 2 is temporarily hosting Fandango’s flash fiction challenge.

This week’s photo is credited to Jordan_Singh on Pixabay. It depicts a woman sitting on a bed in the dark with her back to us and a flash of electricity next to her. She faces a window where glowing planets are visible.

She looks through the window

Planets visible in the distance

Darkness swallows her up

Electricity coursing through her veins

She is strong willed

A warrior

A survivor of much turmoil

As the planets twinkle in the distance

She is wishing and hoping


Of a better world

Where survival is not so tough.

  1. This piece of work is truly inspiring, capturing the spirit of tenacity and resilience required to make it through a challenging world. The poem’s creative use of images to liken life’s battle to the glow of orbiting planets in the night sky is stirring and powerful. As a whole, this poem serves as an incredible tribute to those who dare to strive for positive change. 👍👏👌😊
