Once there was an old woman who lived in a shoe. She had so many children, she didn't know what to do. In fact, she had precisely fifty-five children! There was Susie and Judy and....well, have you ever tried to keep fifty-five names straight, fix dinner for fifty-five every night, AND find time to write?!?
It's that time, everybody. Time to write a poem or a piece of flash fiction in exactly fifty-five words, no more, no less. Any subject; children, shoes, nervous breakdowns, whatever floats your boat!
Hi Shay, thanks for bringing us the Flash 55. My poetic brain cells seem to be on leave at the moment. I hope I can string the required number of words together for this.
Flash! Ah - ahhhhh!
I normally write my 55's in advance, but I had a dream far too weird to pass up--I only wish G-man could have the opportunity to read and not understand it. ;_)
Flashing shoes and nervous breakdowns, huh? Lovely. I shall write something for it... mañana!
LOL @ Hedgewitch.
Everyone feel free to grab our 55 badge from the top of this post.
ps--I have pandered shamelessly to our South African head Toad with mine.
Hi all.. Been on hiatus for a while.. But couldn't miss a 55 .. Hope summer is treating you well..
Thank you!! Great fun. :)
Hey! I'll be back to read in 8 hours or 10.
I hope this goes through Sunday - I'll be back then to post. Just wondering… Galen, is he off vacationing and enjoying the summer? I hope he is well (I've been a little worried).
(Yes, indeed, LOL, Hedgewitch!) What a fun twist on the old rhyme...great 55.
Hi Shay. Thanks for the "comical" prompt. I made my way back to the garden with the help of my blind seeing-word dog, and somehow managed 55 words of real doggerel.
It's almost 4am now, and Lindy is snoring loudly behind me, so I'm off to bed again.
Hey Shay--I should have gone comic but have not felt so comic lately! Thanks, as always. k.
This was fun! Mine actually turned into an erasure poem - I started flipping through a novel I was reading and pulling words out to create this piece.
Thanks for keeping the 55 alive! :o)
