“FICTION IN A FLASH CHALLLENGE” #12

Welcome to today’s blog. Once again I am sharing a short story or a flash fiction based on a photo prompt. Author, Suzanne Burke offers these challenges and everyone is welcome to participate. https://sooozburkeauthor.wordpress.com/

The photo prompt for this week is below. I was inspired by the photo to write my first Tanka poem. This type of Japanese poetry requires 31 syllables written in one flowing sentence. The syllable count form is 5/7/5/7/7.

Your comments are welcome and appreciated. What did you feel as you read the Tanka? When you gaze at the four-sided clock, what thoughts come to you?

I invite you to go to Suzanne Burke’s website at https://sooozburkeauthor.wordpress.com/. There you will learn about this talented and award-winning author, plus be alerted to any future “Fiction in a Flash Challenges.”

  1. I love the hope in your poem, Karen. Plus its a great reminder of what a gift each day is for us. Isn’t it fun trying new forms of poetry as well? Wonderful Tanka!
