Flash Fiction: Cloud Atlas

This week's flash fiction comes from Garrie Fletcher, and accompanies the film 'Cloud Atlas'.

 A symphony of lives,
each one a note, each vibration
 echoing, rippling through time,
entropy’s melody linking
them together.

they breathe in, breathe out,
lives loved, lives lost, lives taken.

The tempo picks up, drops off
picks up, drops off
from ocean to ocean,
from diary to transcript
to manuscript.

Each moment
recorded upon the staves,
waiting to be played.
