Re: Flash Fiction

Great bolts of lightening lit up an otherwise blackened sky. Just before a fierce clap of thunder was heard, one large fire bolt targeted a centuries old tree. Thankfully, the resultant blaze elicited an overwhelming response from the town’s emergency volunteers. (42 words)

Re: Week Three – Nepal

Re: Week One – San Marino

Although I hate to part with it even for a moment, I will lend the Curiosity Museum my treasured Blackbulb. I found the Blackbulb in a pawn shop in South Dakota. The owner of the pawn shop told me it was rumored to have been owned by Jerry Garcia, the mellow guitarist of the “Grateful Dead” band but...

Re: April - Haiku Poetry Day

The full moon challenge
Is scary for a werewolf
And out of control.

But a potion helps
To ease the transformation
Too bad it tastes bad.

No silver bullets
And that’s probably okay
Werewolves can be friends!

Either you’ve been spiked with a Love Potion, or you’re head over heels in love with these Harry Potter romances.

Go on, take a bow. Not because a Hippogriff is staring at you, but because you’re an official expert in magical creatures. Even Newt would be impressed. Congratulations!
