10 Short Stories challenge – day 6

Today I read Aqua-birds by Mike Russell. Aqua-birds is a brilliant little piece of flash fiction. It’s sad and thought-provoking, conjuring up rich images in the reader’s imagination.

“The aqua-birds’ thirst induces hallucinations of extraordinarily beautiful and ornate birdbaths.”

I read Aqua-birds over on Scriggler.com – go and have a read and then come back to tell me what you think in the comments!

Mike Russell’s stories have been described as “high minded weirdness” and I haven’t come across any authors writing in quite the same style. There’s another one of his short stories available free here. Mike is based in Brighton in the UK.
