Flash Fiction


keepcalmAndWriteFlashThinking about Flash Fiction writers on Napowrimo, Day 27.

Flash: a quickly written,
smitten – writer on a mission –
short, short story,
flash fiction.

Get those fingers flashing,
brain dashing,
mind mashing,
pen writing,

brain fighting to
work a twist into
the tail – rail against
time – get it down,

get it down,
get down,

  3. Polly, thanks for keeping my seat warm! Will start posting tomorrow.

    This was a great take on flash fiction. For me, that’s like playing Pac-Man… the adrenalin rush and panic to get it done, the runrunrun of it, well, that’s me half the time anyway, so I avoid those situations. I’m a “slow cooker” most of the time on poetry, unless something strikes me at 3 am, and then I’m off and running!

    Your poem ON F.F. is a nice wordplay, a good write. Really enjoyed it. Peace, Amy


  4. Flash – A-aaah savior of the universe!

  6. Great energy in this poem, Polly, you’ve captured its essence brilliantly. πŸ™‚


  7. Nice Rhythm and flow.
