Welcome to Saturday Mix — Lorraine where we play in a sandbox of words writing flash, microfiction and poetry. Bastet and I are sharing hosting duties. This week, I have two pieces of micro-fiction and a poem to offer.
Let’s try what I call a fifty/fifty split: write a piece of flash in 50 words using one word from each column; you can alter the form of the word – responded; deliciously
noun verb modifier (verb/noun)
cistern undulate careful
artisan respond inquisitive
sphinx attach ultramarine
rabbit peruse opaque
courtesan vibrate delicious
And in 25 words or less, an image for your perusal and penmanship:

The poetry form this week is a shadorma (3/5/3/3/7/5). You can write one stanza (that’s what I do) or multiple stanzas. I’d like you to write to a theme word this week, chimera. You can think of the house for the “In 25 words or less”, and wonder if chimera applies there too. Chimera has multiple meanings — feel free to explore.
a whole breath then gone
chimera beats against heart
then spinning away
So, that’s my Saturday Mix for January 21, 2017. Tag your posts Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie and Saturday Mix. Create a link (pingback) to this post. Mr. Linky, as always, awaits.
