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 55 PLUS!

Greetings to all poets and friends. It is time for the Flash 55 Challenge! The rules of this prompt have not changed: Write a piece of poetry or prose on a subject of your choice in precisely 55 WORDS.

Fair Use


+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

PLUS!

In February this year, NASA announced the discovery of a solar system called Trappist-1, in the constellation Aquarius. I'm sure most have read about this already, but for those who would like to read more, please click HERE and for a 360 degree virtual tour, click HERE.

Our optional extra part of this challenge is "Worlds Apart" vs "Extremely Close". Feel free to interpret this in any way that seems relevant, Sci Fi/ Space themes are welcomed but not mandatory.

Not a very sunny Sunday here. I am at present living extremely close to areas of heavy flooding. But as I am thankfully too high up to be affected, my part of town and that part of town are suddenly, in many ways, words apart!

Happy Sunday everyone! I was supposed to be traveling home today, but the whole drive will be flash floods and tornado watches. Staying put and will head home tomorrow.

No plus this time, but can't miss a 55. Best of Sundays to all.

Happy Sunday all. I'm off to a bonfire and a possibly 'awkward' encounter with the Clash song 'Should I stay or should I go?' rattling around in my head. Comments and reading will follow post party. Wish me luck.

I'll try and see what I can come up with. Not sure I can do a poem a day but I can drop in sometimes as I do enjoy writing. I'm planning on going to Oakland on Tuesday to visit my BFF again so will be busy.

Have a nice Sunday, everyone! Hugs!
