This week’s writing challenge is hosted by Vincent Mars, who challenges us to write a story of only 50 words in length. Weeks ago I might have thought this impossible, but Friday Fictioneers has helped me tremendously in cutting out excess words. I’ve never posted poetry here before, so I thought I’d take this opportunity. I’m sure what I’ve written violates all the rules of poetry, but I’m not aiming to become a professional in any sense. I’ve mostly posted fiction so far, but today I decided to express some feelings that have been bouncing around in my heart for some time.
I imagined years from now, we’d still be living the magic of life.
Waking with smiles, kissing in the rain, and dancing in candlelight.
Already jaded, the music’s gone, though I still listen for a tune.
You don’t seem to notice, or even care, but maybe you will in June.
Thanks for reading,
