One must make a distinction however: when dragged into prominence by half poets, the result is not poetry, nor till the autocrats among us can be “literalists of the imagination”—above insolence and triviality and can present for inspection, imaginary gardens with real toads in them, shall we have it.

Flash Fiction 55

Hello, all. It's time once again for Flash Fiction 55! Just write a poem or a piece of flash fiction, about any subject, and in any form, as long as it is comes to exactly 55 words!

I do ask for a NEW piece of writing, as here at Toads we are all about spurring new creativity. Then link up and that's it. Have fun!

Yay I think this is the first time ever that I made it to a linky first. I am going to celebrate with chocolate!! Hope everyone is having a good weekend. :-)

Thanks to Shay for hosting ~ I know your dislike for haiku, so I wrote mine American Sentences ~

Wishing you all happy weekend ~
