THE SHORTEST POEM OR FLASH FICTION EVER – WELL, MAYBE

THE SHORTEST POEM OR FLASH FICTION EVER – WELL, MAYBE?

Many thanks to PoetGirlEm for helping provide the inspiration, motivation and the “push” to write this poem in a way in which I am alien too – short!  Credit also goes to DavyD for providing an attraction to his three line poems that are so powerful and insightful.  His poems have been the inspirational seed for several poems.  Please check both of these writers out!!

This made me, the mischief maker, give a dare to PoetGirlEm to see if she could beat DavyD to be the first one to write a one word poem.  She laughed – ha, ha (see comments on here-6-words).  Well, I got to thinking about it and despite being a Rambler when it comes to words I decided to take myself up on my own dare.  Write the shortest poem possible – one word.  Can you write a poem shorter than one word?

Maybe Sailorpoet would be kind enough to be the Host of another Meme – “The One Word Poem”?  Shall we ask him?  Not that we should add more things to His plate, but – Please??

Writing With Hope

There’s an avenue in Redondo Beach that dips twice with depressions in the asphalt deep enough that, unless you are driving a big truck or an SUV, you’re liable to experience a horrible sound. The awful scraping is that of your car’s front end getting mangled where the hill bottoms out.
