Dreams (20-word story)

Silver sailed

the unfurling fabric

of our love

upon a moonlit sea,

the day my dragon-headed boatlord

returned to me.



This was a 20-word story (well, not sure if it qualifies as a story, but this is what flowed from the fingers ;)), based on the one-word prompt “Dreams,” a weekly challenge started this week by a very, very dear blog-friend. I was partly inspired by A.’s own intriguing story. So much fun. Check out her blog, she is so helpful, supportive, and inspiring. Posting lit submissions and stories and other prompts, along with some great writing (my fave were her fiction stories re: a gal named Fire 😍πŸ”₯). One of the best WP community members I have ever met: Akanksha of Bulbul’s Bubble. Please join in and try it yourself!! :)))

Edit 2020-08-07: “Fiery” corrected to “Fire” and link added (WP Reader link to first chapter of “Fire” series: here). (Sorry A.!!! πŸ˜† I remembered the story, but not very well the name. :))) πŸ˜…Β πŸ€“πŸŒŠ xoxox )

    1. Thanks so much for the kind words… tbh after I let that sit for awhile I was like WTF? lol. It is odd where the pen leads us in dreams, if hopefully not in reality. ;)) Thanks again for all of your inspiration and encouragement, you are more than that, certainly not half of that. Much much love. πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™β€οΈβ€οΈβ€οΈ

    1. Awww thank you DA! “Enigmatic indeed, and perhaps just a tad unconscious,” she mused after having published it, or something like. ;)) Such a lovely comment, again… thank you so much. πŸ’—
