Summer Monday Status

Its week 26 of 52. There’s good news to announce… I have won! Yes! I won the writing.com ‘200 word flash fiction’ contest for May. I have also sent a submission for the Writer’s Digest photo-prompt contest that I hope will be well received.

This past week saw another thrilling episode in the 200 word flash fiction project, as well as a couple of poetic exercises. I hope to continue that this week as well. With the new forms and structures the poems are like Sudoku with words.

In the meantime:

Its week 25 of 52 and I continue to make slow progress. There are now three installments of the 200 word flash fiction. Episode one – Approach on Cat’s Feet, won the contest for May. This week I’ll add another installment. Also, I have posted another group of haiku.

This week will see another 200 word flash fiction installment, as well as another foray into the poetics.

Writing.com 200 Word Flash-Fiction 02

time02And so the 200 word flash fiction story continues… this week’s installment – The Arrival (cue 70’s style TV detective show theme music).

 

The ship’s launch approached slowly. Captain Yamoto’s eyes strained to pierce the lifting fog, seeing the dock and its surroundings in shades of gray. As he drew closer he could make out a tall, lean man standing on the dock awaiting him. There were suppose to be two men here to make the exchange, he thought, appraising the stranger.

Every bit the pirate, Yamoto surmised. This mercenary of the Lady Lin seems very calm, the word that came to him was, serene. As the launch docked, he drummed his fingers nervously on the wooden box beside him, relieved that the jade disc would soon be this stranger’s misfortune. It lay there in the box and Yamoto couldn’t help but think of it as a sleeping serpent coiled and tensed for action.

Yamoto’s grandfather had acquired the rare, green jade disk with the gold dragon inlay-ed while he was commanding a small expeditionary force in China. It was said to plague its owner with various misfortunes, but who believes in such superstitions in this enlightened age, Yamoto, with very good reasons. After fifty dormant years in Japan it was time to send the serpent back. A storm gathering, ready to strike.
