Happy 2021! I hope this year treats you well. This time for the Friday Fictioneers blog challenge for 1 January 2021, I decided to try writing a poem in 100 words. Not as easy as it might seem to some, finding a good cadence and rhythm while telling a story in poetic form in exactly 100 words.
I love a challenge! So here we go…
The Photo Writing Prompt
PHOTO PROMPT © Na’ama Yehuda
Description for my blind and visually impaired readers: This is a photo of a sky full of cumulus clouds. Something’s in the lower right corner, but Im not sure what. Might be a truck shown from behind, or maybe a building.
This story actually happened to me. Have I mentioned I have a tendency to stamp out evil entities on the side??? It was a flight to Dallas on my way elsewhere.
Genre: Paranormal Poetry
Word Count: 100
The Story: The Blue between the Clouds
I fly within the blue between the clouds,
Above, a puffed array of cumulus,
Like mounds of whipped cream on Grandma’s pie.
Below, a heaving, undulating mat:
Torrential rage, flashy punctuation,
And twisting winds cause chaos below.
Demonic interference joins the mix.
Playing soccer with nimbi entertains them,
Not me, the passengers, or those below.
They revel in calamity and fear.
Regular winds and lightning won’t suffice.
They mega-boom thunder’s wrath for fun,
and spark brilliant flashes with evil.
Oblivious, they play while I raise power.
I bring their game to a screaming halt
Sending them away in tiny pieces.
Thanks for reading!
Cheers to your #BLISSfulLife!!
