For FFFC #135 and MVB: Appropriate. Linked also to today’s Writers’ Pantry.
A field full of dreams,
A dream full of doors,
Doorways to many places,
Options more and more.
More and more wondering,
Which is the right choice?
Hearing all futures calling,
Coaxing in their voice.
In this field of dreams,
Proceed unafraid, for
Dreamers come back many times
To find the appropriate door.
She picks the happy face to display,
Pretending she has a happy family
And “Yes, my hair is always styled
She waits, like an automaton, for an ending,
While companions prattle on about nothing.
A short poem today, for FOWC: Repeat and also inspired by the FFFC #125 picture (below). I also used the words for Ronovan Writes’ haiku challenge, even though I wrote a Lune rather than a haiku, so am linking to that. 🙂
we make plans —
time repeats tick-tock
as clocks laugh
I wrote this poem today for FOWC: Myriad and Fandango’s flash-fiction challenge #111.

This is my attempt at a Waltmarie poem for the Weekly Scribblings at PSU, and it was inspired by FFFC #107, which used the image below:
This is a haibun for FFFC #98 and Frank J. Tassone’s haikai challenge about the New Year / Cold Moon. I tried to come up with a good title, but they were all either too silly or too sad. I don’t want to make the reader sad right from the get-go. 😉
She lies awake, waiting for the ball to drop in Times Square, for the new year to be ushered in with customary fanfare — or what passes for fanfare (or custom) in these strange times. Times Square is empty, people in their homes, hoping for a fuller year ahead.

This senryu is for Fandango’s flash-fiction challenge #94, and I’m also sharing with the Writers’ Pantry. The image below is from Ryan McGuire at Pixabay.
Biased media —
Stuck inside a spin cycle
Nobody gets clean
I wasn’t going to post this, but here it is: an attempt at flash-fiction for FFFC #92. The image is below. I am also sharing this with the Writers’ Pantry.
Side note: I just realized that I have been writing and posting about space a lot lately.
For DVerse Poetics, we are writing about folly, and for Tourmaline’s Halloween challenge, I included the word “trick.” I hope it’s acceptable that my subject matter has nothing to do with anything creepy. I was also inspired by FFFC #89, the picture below. Picture by Renate Vanaga at Unsplash.
Is it a trick of the light?
No, those two are smiling,
Laughing, hands clasped
Relaxing face to face, not
Mindful of the slightest folly.
This seems like a dream:
No unhappiness are they seeing,
Leaving at home their masks,
Relaxing with no trace of
Fear, not even of honesty.
