Notre Dame Burning

Thank you for coming to my blog for another flash fiction, or vey short story. This one is based on a photo prompt for Friday 24 April 2020. The challenge is to write a complete story of precisely 100 words.

Flash Fiction

The Photo


Description for my blind/visually impaired friends: I actually had to ask our hostess, Rochelle Wisoff-Fields, what in the world was in this one. I got a sense of decay, but that was about it. It’s a mutilated picture of Paris sitting against a wall over an oily-looking floor with a plastic tub and electrical outlet to either side.

The Inspiration

The Notre Dame fire.

The Story: Notre Dame Burning

Gazing at the glorious spire at Le Cathedral do Notre Dame, my heart thumped. Such a treat for anyone who loves to visit historic sites. Inside, I bypassed the kiosks where guests can hear about the building and history of the site in any of a hundred languages. I wanted to feel and experience it for myself.

Stepping into the sanctuary, I felt like a grain of sand on a beach. I heard the prayers of countless faithful and the voices of ten thousand choirs in my heart.

Then fire reduced to ash in minutes what took years to build.


Thanks for reading!
