SONG OF EVERYTHING
by Oonah V Joslin
Check out today's most excellent offering from Every Day Fiction: http://www.everydayfiction.com/song-of-everything-by-oonah-v-joslin/
This piece is fantastic, an excellent example of the blurred boundaries between flash fiction and prose poetry. The imagery is vivid, the prose lyrical and musical, completely befitting the title and theme. The content is at once filled with youthful innocence and delicious darkness, the beginning and the end of us all so expertly laid out in marvelous metaphor. Many shy away from what they consider 'artsy-fartsy, fluffy language' in flash fiction, feeling word economy is more important than pretty words, but Oonah makes skillful use of flowery language, which becomes the story instead of detracting from it.
Well done, Oonah. Two thumbs up for sure!
