‘Fiction In A Flash Challenge’ Week #23 @pursoot #IARTG #WritingPrompts #WritingCommunity #FlashFiction #Poetry #Tanka #Haiku

Here’s Suzanne Burke’s ‘Fiction In A Flash Challenge’ Week #23 NEW IMAGE PROMPT.

I’ve been busy editing late into the night all week to meet a deadline. I think I’m finally done in time to start the NaNo. Whew! Sorry if I’ve been missing the last couple of days, but this ran into Halloween which I’m enjoying today.

I couldn’t pass up this beautiful picture. I have two poems, a Tanka and Haiku that came to me last night. I couldn’t choose.

Here’s the Tanka which is 5/7/5/7/7:


Aloft over river

The landscape glows with autumn

Peaceful under wings

When a hollow hunger calls

Abundance rewards the hawk.

And now the Haiku 5/7/5:

My wings carry me

High above the autumn glow

I soar with angels.


Happy Halloween! I’m off to enjoy more scary fun. D. L. Finn

  1. These are both such great takes on the prompt, Denise. Wonderfully visual! Thanks for taking part again. I wish you well with NaNoWrimo. I’m so pleased that you clearly enjoyed a great Halloween. I’ve just shared this post on the challenge site. 😊

    1. Thank you, Soooz. It was a wonderfully visual picture to work from, how could I pass it up? I did enjoy the day. It was different, but we made a couple of walks, one in the day and one at night through a local town that decorated. At night my daughter insisted we wear plague doctor masks….

      1. I’m so pleased you were able to take those walks. We had a very quiet Halloween this year. Hopefully the restrictions will ease a little and we’ll be free to go trick or treating next year.
