The Blue Between the Clouds | Friday Fictioneers Paranormal Poetry 1 Jan 2021

Covers of They All Died Smiling in ebook, print, and audiobook formats, available at Amazon or your favorite fine retailer

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.

Flash Fiction

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.

The Inspiration

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!!

My Inspiration

I can hardly believe I got a poem to fit the word count with only a little fiddling! This prompt made me think of my intrepid guide dog, Diva, who showed a new skill recently. I would never have thought my gentle girl bold, but here’s what happened…

The Poem: Diva the Bold

2019-happy-Jemma

My sweet Golden Retriever

Keeps me safe on roads and streets.

With never a snarl or a growl

‘Til a ‘yote came to our yard,

With no intention to play.

She rumbled way deep in her throat

And frightened that ‘yote away.

My gifted, intrepid guide

Diva the Bold won the day!
