Flash Fiction - 6








A Taste of Snow
By Kathleen Kimball-Baker



Sasha could smell the smoke from a wood-burning stove ahead.
Her weary followers lowered their heads against the blizzard.
Far behind, the woman in a parka clung with one arm,
her eyelashes frozen shut.

Reaching the cabin, Sasha’s cries awakened the man inside.
He found her in a heap,
licking ice off her paws.
