Haiku for Not Weeding the Garden

 

The flowers reach up

from the lively jungle,

grasping for the sun.

“Listening to the Animals” takes 1st place in The Molotov Cocktail’s Flash Worlds contest!

Hello!  Exciting news this week!  My flash fiction story, “Listening to the Animals,” was awarded first place in The Molotov Cocktail’s Flash Worlds contest!  I’m honored and more excited than it’s easy for me to express!  I hope you’ll check out my story and the others in the issue.  I also love the cover art and the image they put with my story.

I’m reading my way through, and I can confirm that the 2nd and 3rd place stories by Celia Daniels and Christina Dalcher are fantastic.  I’m going to be haunted by their worlds for some time.  I’ve also already read FlashDog Voima Oy’s story, which earned 7th place, and it is beautiful!

 

Haiku for Trying to Buy Solar Eclipse Glasses Online

Studying the list,

seeking approved shades that won’t

burn our wond’ring eyes.

I did find some, finally.  I definitely should’ve ordered sooner, but…I didn’t.  Thanks, Museum of Science, Boston–I await the eclipse glasses!  I know I haven’t written here in awhile.  I will try to be better!  I taught summer school last month and then was sick, and I’ve taken my spare moments for other writing projects.  Hope all are enjoying the summer!
