Here is my 100 word story for Madison Woods’ FridayFictioneers photo prompt. Find her story here. Read and comment, maybe even write your own story for perusal by the gang of talented flash fiction writers. Never know what you might find.
My story is somewhat cryptic and you need not comment if it doesn’t resonate with you. Its MC has gone to sea one last time, intending to end his life in the place that he loves. It is a beginning of a longer story, so please forgive me. All I could think of when looking at the prompt was that every molecule of water that ever existed just keeps cycling through time and tide, carrying us all along toward our eventual fate.
The Endless Sea
The serenade of the sea whispers to me of days to come, of new life in the deep and new hope for all her creatures. The collective spirit of her children calls to me and I answer by dangling my hand over the swim-step and into her cool embrace. The slap and suck of waves rolling beneath the hull of my last home is the measured pulse of the great heart of the ocean. The One Sea, vast and endless and globe circling, carries me on the swell of her breast, cradles me in her all encompassing arms, and waits.
