FLASH FICTION-THE PINK MOON

 
Hello everyone. Today I have flash fiction that is on the whimsy side. I hope you enjoy. Have a great weekend!
 
 
 
 
 
 
The Pink Moon
 
 
It was rare so we decided to have a picnic by the lake under the pink moon.
We made cucumber sandwiches, cut cheese into small cubes and made jam cookies for dessert.
You brought red wine that you made. Instead of wine glasses we took tea cups.
I had a blanket so we were all set.
When we got there a breeze had picked up and out one end of the blanket didn't want to stay down but along came a rabbit and he said that he would sit at the end if he could have one of our cucumber sandwiches.
We said yes. He enjoyed the sandwich and we also offered him some wine in another tea cup. It was chipped but he didn't seem to mind.
We talked about the summer and we all agreed we were sad to see it getting close to the end. But for now this night was perfect.
We ate out cookies and got our fingers sticky. We forgot the napkins and had to lick out fingers.
The wind had gone down so the rabbit thanked us for the cucumber sandwich and wine and went on his way wishing us well.
We packed up out stuff. The wine had stained the tea cups but that was okay.

On our way back we promised each other that we would do this again, even if there was no pink moon.
