Weekend Writing Prompt #126 – Haven

The Community

Their children and grandchildren did not know the value of peace; they knew not the price of war. How ironic that the haven they live in was bought by bloodshed and violence.

(32 words)


Only those who fought would truly appreciate, I guess. I notice the plethora of “action” movies that sensationalise and glorify war or large scale fighting and I could not help but wonder – do we really want violence that much?

If you are interested, the prompt is linked below.

The challenge is simple: each week you will be given an exact number of words you can use to write a poem or piece of prose.  You can use any format or style you like; go wherever your inspiration takes you.  The only rules are these:

  • your poem / prose must contain this week’s word.  The word does not have to count towards the exact word count total – it can be in the title, or the first letters of the lines of a poem can spell it out – you can be as creative as you want as long as it’s there somewhere.
  • the length of your poem / prose must match the number of words stated in this week’s challenge.  No more.  No less.

SIX-WORD STORY CHALLENGE – “ELIXIR”

body lives forever; the mind didn’t


I think sometimes, we are too intimidated by the concept of death that we must find something to demonstrate how we continue to live beyond it – eternity, elixir, immortality, gods, fame and sadly, even charity. Meanwhile, our minds sometimes yearns for growth too.

Twittering Tales #157 – 8 October 2019

Into Space

Everyone believed that building the observatory on the mountain was a good idea.

The mountain was very tall and that was about as close to the stars as the astrophysicists could get.

That was until Earth lost its gravitational force and the mountain began to float into space.

About the challenge: Each Tuesday I will provide a photo prompt. Your mission, if you choose to accept the challenge, is to tell a story in 280 characters or less. When you write your tale, be sure to let me know in the comments with a link to your tale. This is important as I have noticed that some of the ping backs have not been working. If you would prefer to post your tale in the comments (some people have very specific blog themes but still want to participate), I am happy to post a link to your site when I post your tale in the Round Up.

I Write Her Weekly Haiku/Senryu Challenge #40

gaia of the house

cosy little home
she balances on her back –
entire world to her


I must say, Susi’s challenges are really getting more challenging. It took me quite a while to get this down. Then the title of this senryuu is another challenge. All in all, I like this. Not my usual finesse, probably, but I still like it.
