55 - Breathtaking Curves

His heartbeat quickened at an astonishing pace.
Never before had he seen such beautiful curves.
When one stopped another began
in seamless, graceful continuity.
He felt he was gazing upon a masterpiece.
He wished to reach out and caress the skin.
It was the first time he had seen

Business took me to Seattle this week. I have been here hundreds of times and occasionally stay at a hotel virtually across the street from the EMP and Space Needle. As the sun was getting lower and lower in the sky, the EMP gave inspiration to this 55. It is a structure with a constantly changing visual appeal and a flow of architectural curves that has no equal.

This is a Flash Fiction Friday 55
hosted by Mr. Knowitall.
For more 55's pay him a visit -
Mr. Knowitall.

If you think Micro Fictions are fun. 
Come join us for a Sunday 160.
A challenge using exactly 160 characters
in a story, poem or writing of your choice.

Ooh, that's really cool. Sort of like a brand new car - you just want to reach out and touch it!

That building is absolutely unbelievable. i haven't been in Seattle since Jim Morrison was alive. Loved the gator story also--fortunately no one was hurt--we had two cops here try to shoot a copperhead in a bird feeder and they ended up killing someone on the the other side of town. Cops should not do animal control. Thanks for the fascinating 55.

Beautiful curves and colors, you've got me wanting to touch it.

You have a very strange fetish here MM.
To each their own Brother.
Loved your 55...:-)
Thanks for playing, and have a Kick Ass Week-End

Stranger said...

Nicely done! I thought it was going to be a car.
G-man already said what was on my mind about your unique fetish.

I was in Seattle last November and didn't get up close the the building, but from a distance it looks like a giant coppery fishscaley looking mass. It was so bright and loud. My friend said that lots of Seattle's residents were unimpressed with it. Next time I go, I'm going to see if I can brush against its curves!

Yeah, I don't think fishscaley is a word.

Salvador, eat your heart out! lol

Matty said...

I thought you were talking about a fine looking car.

the walking man said...

From the website it certainly seems to be one of the most unique structures in America. I'd like to see it a little more up close and personal too.

He was, Matty!

Dr. Heckle said...

Did you record your own music video? I had to do that while I was there... The only thing is that everyone standing in line gets to watch you while you do it.

Sharon Day said...

Damn! And I thought for sure I finally got you to write a poem about me.

Belinda Munoz said...

I actually know what you're talking about. My husband who worked for a symphone once told me about this amazing place.

Jannie Funster said...

I wanna see it in person too!!! Never been to Seattle. Or Washington. Or Oregon. Been to B.C. tho.

Art, ah art, let us live in and for art, and love, 24 / 7.


Steve Isaak said...

I've been there, can relate to it. Nice twist at the end.

Other Mary said...

Heheh - I didn't scroll down all the way, so I was thinking of a... car. Cheers!

izzy said...

Anonymous said...

stunning !! my imagination is running places right now !!

Linda said...

Sounds like an interesting place. At first I thought you were talking about a drive down a twisty road.

Bubba said...

It's basic: Curves are feminine, angles are masculine.

(The ladies tell me there's nothing like acute angle - unless it's being obtuse)
