Flash Fiction 55 -- Played the Lottery

 
Played the lottery Saturday nights 
Two bucks kept hidden in her bra
If she won, a new house she'd buy
Move from that old red rusty shed
 

Win she did one day, went shopping
Found new house her ten K would buy
Small but could wait another day
Win again, get house of her dreams

Today I'm linked with at the Real Toads, Flash Fiction 55

Rules are to "write a poem, prose poem, or piece of flash fiction which uses exactly 55 words to tell its story."  Mine is 55 words, no title.  It's fiction but could be true for some.

I hope she waits and wins and gets her dream house. The pictures added so much.

What a cute little house. Don't know if I could manage that boat ladder, though, Jim!
I seldom buy lottery tickets, haven't done so in years, but if I have trouble falling asleep, I can lull myself into Slumberland imagining what I'd do with a large amount of money.
Hope you are well.
Luv, K

A Malaysian man won the second lottery prize over the weekend. He was too happy until he passed on immediately. Sad!

Interesting progression...I love the color though of the first - rusty red. :)

Great story for so few lines...and it has such a lyrical rhythm to it.
