friday flash fiction 55, Filling Space

all the stars

in the sky,

all the space
in between,

all the galaxies
hidden in telescopes,

cannot fill the void
in my heart once filled

by your voice,
once held in your hand.

Today, in full view
of the hollow room
empty words form a single
galaxy between us

a heartbeat
fills a universe.

This is a poem in exactly 55 words.  Post on Friday, and let our host G-Man at Mr Knowitall blog know it all.  Have a great weekend!  I'll work on the humorous edge of my writing from now on, this piece just sat on the keyboard waiting for me to turn on the juice.....I had no control over the little monster.


  1. Di....
    This is my favorite of anything you have done.
    Poetry at it's best.
    Hmmmm...Two superlatives so far. Does that tell you anything?
    Thank You so much for this little treat.
    Have a Kick Ass Week-End...G

  2. I loved it Di - but I am the incurable romantic. I can sit staring at the sky all night and think thoughts inspired by the moon and stars and ...

    I loved it dont give up the romantic altogether - I do love your humor

    Happy Weekend

  3. Galaxies do actually collide and meld into one. I like this one very Much Dianne.

  4. There's a soft translucence to this one, looking through a window into disparate infinity.
