A LETTER: My Entry for FFFC #133

Photo from sasint at

For the visually challenged writer, the photo is of three young boys playing in a pond and splashing on each other.

HOW THE CHALLENGE WORKS: Each week, a new, interesting photo from the internet will be posted on This, That and the Other ( challenging bloggers to write a flash fiction piece or a poem inspired by the photo. There are no style or word limits.


Dear Mother,

I began my day today just as usual, taking a plunge from the cold heights of your mountains, then rushing down its rocky, sunlit slopes with fresh morning energy. And don’t worry, I made sure to greet all the robins on the way this time!

Past midday, I began to feel a little lazy so I decided to slow down to a gentle babble and allow the fish to frolic a bit—it always makes me laugh how the little ones dance as they chase each other downstream; this time of day happens to be my favourite because of that.

You must already know all of this, Mother, since it’s my daily routine, but did you know I was paid a surprise visit today? Yes, a surprise visit!

As I was dozing off to the murmur of my water over the shadowed rocks on the banks, I was suddenly awoken by a splash. That’s when I saw three young boys jump one by one into my shallows. What a delight it was to hear their joyous voices! I think I recognise them from the nearby monastery. I watched the young monks-in-training for a while before joining in their play too.

However, it wasn’t long before they were called back for study time; I must admit that I was sad to see them leave. Nevertheless, we had a great time and I only hope we shall meet again soon, perhaps with some more of their friends.

Anyway, that’s all I have to write about today. I eagerly await what tomorrow brings so that I may share it with you again. Until then, take care, Mother!

With Love,



An aspiring writer, among many other things. Loves crafting memorable, heartwarming slice-of-life stories. Has a jolly time creating magical, fantastical adventures for readers to immerse themselves in!
