Won’t you play with me in the #vss365 (very short stories – 365 days a year) #prompt (the word you use when you create a Twitter-sized response in poetry or prose) challenges on Twitter?! This short activity is brain-teasing, gets the creative juices flowing, and starts each day with something other than your same ole’ thoughts revolving endlessly in your head!
It’s for everyone – from people who’ve never written poems or prose before all the way to real Pros! You can write something humorous, elegant, scary, or abstruse – whatever you want to do will work!
I tell you all about it in great detail when you Click Here. However, the purpose of this post is to share my responses to the #vss365 challenges for this week (below) and to quickly point you to where, on Twitter, you can join in the fun. There, you also can find the submissions of other writers. To learn more here, scroll to the bottom. But, first …. this week’s submissions….

#vss365 #prompt #crepuscular
The meteor hurled itself
Against Europe’s crown jewel hub
Leaving all aflame in crepuscular haze
For days on end.
Once again, Nature proves itself a force
Greater than the constructs of mankind.
Of course, we shall build again.
It is the Spirit that prevails.

Crisp air sails puffy clouds high aloft over the Rocky Mountains speckled gold and green with aspens and pines, the snowmelt having long ago devolved from waterfall to river to rivulet.

#vss365 #prompt #fret #tanka
Here I sit alone
Fretting an embossed dragon
On Black tapestry.
Fretting an embossed dragon
Into stark black emotions
Wondering if you’re alive.
