Friday Flash 55.....



Perfectly Serene...Mata Hari Guile!
A uniquely charming sense of style.
She'll fly your kite
She'll float your boat
She'll rip your lungs out thru your throat!
She suggests you leave..She knows you'll stay.
She questions your Love...No matter what you say.
Shrug your shoulders...Exhale a sigh
Because without her...You'd surely DIE!


Shhhhhh.....
This IS a FICTION site .
If you or anyone you know has written a Friday Flash 55
Please come tell The G-Man
I will visit, read, enjoy, comment...Then BOOK!!!
So from the most persistant host from coast to coast...
Have a Kick Ass Week-End!!!

Good thing you mentioned it was fiction... I was just starting to get worried :)

Happy Friday Fifty-Five, G-Man and crew!

My schedule’s a whirlwind this week; I’ll be around to visit everyone tomorrow. I rounded up fifty-five words and coaxed them into a smile…

Treasure Hunting.

Brian Miller said...

mmm...there are some way of dying that are just not that bad you know...smiles.

dustus said...

Once the kite's up and the boat is moving you just don't suspect your throat is about to be removed. Great 55 with a poetic flair! Thanks for hosting, G

So, it's about doing what she wants. Kind of fits in with my 55 this week! :)

Monkey Man said...

Margaretha Zelle, Lady MacLeod, Mata Hari. Enchantress in her day regardless of name.

My 55 is HERE. My fictionalized version of a sad, but true story.

Mine's scheduled to post at 5:55 a.m. Friday here?

LauraX said...

love your post (it's reminds me of a song my father in law would sing-he was a sailor to his core)...I did a 55...maybe more non-fiction, than fiction...but hey, I did it in 55!
This was my very first try with this challenge...come on over and visit, wouldja?

5thsister said...

Ah, beware the vixen...summon all the courage you can and RUN!

I'm an hour late but my flash is finally tweaked to my satisfaction. I hope it makes sense as it is from a personal dream I had the other night.

Serena said...

Oh, my goodness, GM, it's a good thing it's only fiction, huh? Otherwise, I'd have to advise you to go with the consensus -- run!

Janna said...

Almost reminds me of that Billy Joel song where he mentions all the exasperating things she does, but then admits "She'll Always Be A Woman To Me."

Which I hope he means in a complimentary way. :)

Thanks for another Friday 55!
Mine's here. :)

Me said...

Nicely done. I love the images in this one, and especially like the line "she suggests you leave...she knows you'll stay".

I'm in, I'm up. Mine is Here. As always, I have trouble with the "fiction" part. But you can pretend I made it up, if you want to. ;)

TALON said...

A beautiful character sketch of the ultimate Femme Fatale, Galen! I imagine all her victims dying with a sigh and a smile...but I'm crazy like that :)

I love the Mata Hari character type, but I always forget how to spell the name.

I've had mine up for ages, but the kids had me running around so much I couldn't get over here. Sigh.

I like this flash...I don't know why exactly. Perhaps, it is the cleverness...Perhaps, because I have been lucky enough not to meet such a beast. My best.
