60 Words In 89 Seconds - Flash Fiction

He slips behind another's eyes, wends his way through exotic mazes of thought, dreams another's dreams, takes strange words into his mouth and expels them, whole yet somehow changed. He skulks about the perimeter, always watching, dissecting;  taking them apart and cobbling them together into angels and monsters which only he can see. He is a voyeur. He loves art.

Well, I tried to get 60 words in 60 seconds, but I had to redo the first line, which cost me. (A title probably would have cost me another minute. Is that cheating?) This is an entry for a 60/60 Blogfest sponsored by Nahno McLein (read about it here ). Why not give it a shot yourself? The theme is "art" in some shape or form.


  1. I don't think it lost a thing and really painted a picture. Voyeurs do scare me though, sort of a silent evil.

    Great read and have a wonderful weekend :)

  2. I really liked this--it was the first that I've read one aside from Nahno's or my own that actually was about art or included the word "art". You created a good image.
    I didn't even bother to time my writing--I just wrote whilst doing other things at the same time. I tend to do that.

  3. Nice Flash! I'm following you; I'm heard about you on the A to Z Blog Challenge. I'm a huge fan of flash fiction.

  4. Lisa, superb.
    This is great, really inventive and like Arlee said about art in an imaginative way.
    Nice play of words.

    So thank you for taking part.
