It's Friday Flash time again...

The prompt is...

#FlashFiveFriday is a weekly flash fiction/flash blogging prompt run by The Indie Exchange.

The rules are very simple if you’d like to take part:
1) Write for no longer than five minutes;
2) No upper or lower word limits;
3) You must write something new;
4) You can prepare your post ahead of time but the 5 minute limit still applies; and
5) If you add your blog post to the weekly linky you must visit five other blogs that week too to show your support.

Why not give it a go?

Here is mine:


Gazing up into
The eye of the silver moon
He remembers all

A small boy running
Across a field of white blooms
Chasing a red kite

He raced to catch him
Before he could grab the rope
Of the trailing tail

Summer lasted long
Warm days drifted together -
How he misses them

Life was so simple
Friendship was easy, chasing
A twisting red kite


  1. Love the poem, Vickie. Really great imagery!

    1. Thanks. Funny thing is, I've never flown a kite. It looks fun though! :)

  2. Great poem, Vickie.

    Love the imagery here. I think we all miss the simplicity of our earliest years at times.

    1. Yeah, things definitely seemed simpler and the days a hell of a lot longer :)

  3. Thanks for sharing this, Vickie. It's a lovely reflection of the times we long for childhood again!

    1. Thanks. I love the prompts cos they get you thinking :)

  4. Hey, for some reason I'm having trouble commenting on here..darned funky connections, lol. I really loved this, Vickie! I always look forward to your submissions...poetry is something I love and just have no talent for, so really appreciate it in others. Thanks!

    1. Thanks JC! I love your writing style too. It stands out. It's rich and layered :)


Thanks for commenting - have a kitty cool day! :)
