Rainbow Snippets for July 30, 2022.
Every week we post six lines from a work of ours, a work-in-progress or a work of someone else’s that has at least one LGBT character, posted on the Rainbow Snippets page, here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/RainbowSnippets/?multi_permalinks=7692389787497683¬if_id=1659146476310253¬if_t=group_activity&ref=notif
This one is from my literally latest story for my weekly flash fiction posts https://authorjeffbaker.com/2022/07/30/but-not-a-drop-to-drink-friday-flash-fics-at-demeters-bar-by-jeff-baker-july-30-2022-saturday-but/ and is pretty much hot off the presses. Appropriate as it deals with heat and water Here, from the opening, a bunch of guys talking at the bar, trying to keep cool..
“Welcome to the drought,” Zack said.
“Water, water everywhere, and not a drop to drink.”
We sipped in silence for a few moments. Then, somebody broke the silence. It was an older man in a grey suit and a loosened tie.
“You know, a long time ago I knew a way of extracting water from the ground,” the man said.
Okay, that’s it for this go round. See you next week! —–jeff
I’m shivering, thinking of our own droughty situation. (wry grin)
🙂 Sprinkled the last couple of days. 90s tomorrow!
Nice use of Coleridge there.
