Today as I made my rounds of favorite blogs, I came across a creative post by Gayle of Bodhirose’s Blog. Her mesmerizing post, Madness, written as part of Flash Fiction, concluded with the following interesting note:
“I came across a prompt that suggested writing a 100 word story using only one syllable words. If you give it a try, let me know; I would love to read yours.”
So, I decided to experiment with Bodhirose’s challenge.
As I Sit in the Sun
I waltz out the door to see what is near the deer in the sun. She looks at me and says –
“How are you, dear one?”
“I am fine, sweet doe.”
“Did you see the buds on the trees?”
“Yes, I have.”
“Did you see the hue … a nice shade of blue?”
“Yes, God chose well.”
The doe smiles; walks to the grass. She scrootched to the ground, then looks to me. I see joy in her eyes. Near her feet, lay her young. In awe, she lets me pet the fawn as I sit in the sun.
Form: “100 word – one syllable” challenge
