It’s that time of week again, and this week there are three entries to take a look at, based on the song Waterloo Sunset by The Kinks; an older song which produced a huge variety of responses.
The entrants here were Ritu, from But I Smile Anyway…, with wordplay and partying nestled happily side by side. wafflemethis wrote of a more delicate evening, and additionally managed to subtly link to the lyrics. Kritsa Yvonne had a gentle piece with plenty of detailed description in sharp contrast to Curtis Bausse, who wrote one of those simultaneously melancholy and eerie pieces he excels in. Elizabeth Preston constructed a terrific piece containing palpable regret and the mutation of the “paradise” spoken of in the lyrics.
Ritu’s piece: ‘Flash Fiction Foray #13 Waterloo Sunset‘
wafflemethis’s piece: ‘FFF#13‘
Yvonne’s piece: ‘Flash Fiction – Waterloo Sunset‘
Curtis’ piece: ‘Terry and Julie‘
Elizabeth’s piece: ‘Flash Fiction Foray: Lost Paradise‘
The prompt for the next week will be posted at (around) 19:00 UTC tomorrow. Thanks go to all the participants!
