55 Fiction - #35

It has been a long long time since I tried my hands with 55Fiction. Leo, the amateur poet wanted me to write a 55ficion for a long time! And now his wish is going to get satisfied.

Everyone knows about 55Fiction I guess! 55 Fiction is a form of micro fiction that refers to the works of fiction limited to a maximum of fifty-five words. Most 55 Fiction works are dramatized so as to get the effect in limited time.

The Irony


He sat alone in the corner, tears streaming down his face.

His wife died this morning, leaving behind a month old son.
At a distance, the ring of the bell followed by a deafening applause r
egistered in his ears.
He put on the mask and thought - "Life is not always funny as a circus clown".




So how was it? Liked my fiction? Drop a comment :-)




With Love,
