FSF – Five Sentence Fiction – “Flowers” – “Off from Poppyland” PG13

What it’s all about: Five Sentence Fiction is about packing a powerful punch in a tiny fist. Each week I will post a one word inspiration, then anyone wishing to participate will write a five sentence story based on the prompt word.

The word does not have to appear in your five sentences, just use it for direction.

This week:  Flowers

Off from Poppyland

By Scott L Vannatter

The motley crew, one by one, began to drop to their knees, each succumbing to the scented nectar of the poppies all around them.

The Tin man first, his clanking heard round the empire, followed by the lion who, for his entire cowardliness, managed to fall asleep in front of everyone.

The scarecrow nested among his own limbs of straw softness; Dorothy lying in his arms.

Lastly, the skinny little runt of a dog managed to nose off the crimson slippers and step into them with a “tap” “tap” “tap”.

“Heading back, homies,” he growled, fading into the afternoon sun.

Where, Then?

.

Dale walked around the torn-up yard and the nearly collapsed barn.  He looked everywhere.  June, finally, stopped him.

“What are you doing?”  She said.

“Looking.”

“I can see that.  What are you looking for?”

“Well, the house is gone.  I was looking for the owners.”

“Gone.  I told you all this.  It’s a great buy and we won’t have to tear everything down.”

“Yeah, you told me.  You said a girl and her aunt, three uncles, and a dog, right?”

“That’s right.  The tornado took the house.”

“Well, it could be worse.”

“How so?”

“At least, we’re not in Kansas.”
