55 Fiction Friday! November 30, 2007
It's time again for 55 Fiction Friday! All the details on what it is and how to play at the end of the post. Come on, you can do it!
MrWurdi's 55 for the week:
In all of time and books of rhyme
A story is told of love unkind
Unkind for all who fail to know
How deep love can truly go
To love enough by worldly beliefs
May simply continue life’s grief
But to find them and give one’s due
Can be called “The Taming of the Shrew”
My 55 for the week:
Hands lightly resting on her knees, she meditated. As the repeating single syllable of her mantra caused the corporeal world to begin drifting away, her mind put a picture of the spelled-out word before her.
As she contemplated her ultimate reality, she was distracted by a single thought.
“Do electricians use ‘ohm’ as their mantra?”
55 fiction is a very, very short story of exactly 55 words. It needs to have a character, conflict and resolution.
