Hoist the Birthday Flag!

Glittering cracker jacks shock the sky.

Red silk banners. Rippling in reply.

Hands raised on deck. Cheering. Celebrating.

Champagne corks burst. Froth and sparkle.

Music booms. Dancers sway. Happy faces.

The Indigo Spider sets sail. Ahoy!

This short story was inspired by Indigo Spider’s Sunday Picture Press – a challenge to write between 50 and 1500 word piece of fiction using one of 4 photos as a prompt. The twisteroo this week was to write a piece about a celebration, and of course for Indigo’s Birthday!

And a big Happy Birthday to her!!

This theme is my take on the #sixwords Twitter stream which is usually 6 words in length. I like to push that further with 6 lines of 6 words.

NOTE: Indigo Spider has moved to a new domain – http://www.indigospider.org –  If you were a previous subscriber to her blog you’ll need to re-subscribe.

NOTE 2: Indigo Spider’s blog has had a bit of a face lift recently, with a new easier layout, forums and live chat! Well worth a visit!

This picture prompt is by an unknown artist at http://www.photosight.ru//photo/alone/4263401.

Excellent picture prompts from Indigo. If you want to join in and write a short piece of fiction clicky-click Indigo Spider’s link above and wrap your imagination around one of the pictures.
