Every week, Rochelle Wisoff-Fields (thank you, Rochelle!) hosts a flash fiction challenge, to write a complete story, based on a photoprompt, with a beginning, middle and end, in 100 words or less. Post it on your blog, and include the Photoprompt and Inlinkz on your page. Link your story URL. Then the fun starts as you read other peoples’ stories and comment on them!

Back and forth, back and forth went the rocking chair as Lizzie waited.
Her back twinged and she grimaced.
Early spring sunshine brightened the room. Lizzie could see the cheerful yellow daffodils in her yard.
She eyed the phone. Would it ring? No, her daughter had rung in the morning. She never rang twice in a day. Lizzie told herself not to be greedy.
A bird perched on the window-ledge. Lizzie wished she wasn’t deaf.
But she heard it!
Birdsong! A blackbird’s melodious tones. A thrush. A robin’s piping.
The notes tumbled over each other.
The light grew and grew.
