First Light #Friday Fictioneers

My first (ever) blog post!  I’ve decided to join Madison’s Friday Fictioneers on  Sarah Berling’s advice.  Thanks Sarah!

Every Friday, Madison posts a photo, and asks for a 100 word or less flash fiction piece based on it.  Here’s the photo; my text is below.  Enjoy!

First Light

Trousers, belt, undershirt, flannel overshirt.  Oatmeal in the microwave with thick dark molasses; three minutes ten seconds.  Kiss my wife murmuring and rolling over.  Look in on the boys and nobody stirs.  Open the door, breath smokes, rooster pokes his head from the shed in back.  Old gray dog at my heel.  Say hey isn’t it pretty on the river and here comes the sun welcome for now.

About glossarch

The word "glossarch" doesn't exist. At least, not yet. But let's pretend it does for a second. The first part is "gloss," a word that comes to us from Ancient Greek via Latin and English. It means "language." The second part also comes from Ancient Greek and can mean "having power over." So "glossarch" means simply "language controller." So what am I doing making up words? Well, I made up an entire language once. It's called Angosey. So I'm the Glossarch of Angosey. I'm currently a doctorate student in volcano seismology (a branch of geophysics). I enjoy writing fiction and poetry, launching balloons, programming, and hanging out with my lovely wife! Follow me on Twitter!

  1. You have such a beautiful, poetic way of writing, Danny. It comes across wonderfully in this piece. I can’t wait to read more of your flash fiction.

    Love,
