Weekend Writing Prompt #48 – Glimpse


#Weekend Writing Prompt #48 – Glimpse

Thank you, Sammi Cox, for the prompt – Glimpse, catching up on challenges that I missed while writing for two other challenges in the month of April.

Write a piece of flash fiction, a poem, a chapter for your novel…anything you like.  Or take the challenge below.


Prose Challenge – Write a story in 250 words about something seen out of the corner of the eye.  Choose from one of the following genres:

  • Fantastical – about a fairy or other mythological creature or
  • Horror – about a monster or ghost etc

Poetry Challenge – Write a poem in five lines, where each line is no longer than 10 words, inspired by either the word prompt or the photo prompt.

Abandoning its Watch

a glimpse silver grey bird green sheen on the throat
swell of glory on its face peering over the ridge
it was only a fleeting glance as it took flight
a very inspiring sight to me it was for sure
spying on me most likely wondering what I was doing


  1. I love how you have given so much knowledge about writing different types of poems. It is inspiring to not only read your beautiful writing, but also learn SO much from your work! Thank you for offering all of us the knowledge we need to do more with poetry!

    • Thanks for the beautiful comment, writing poetry is a great way to release the pressures of the day, and much easier for the readers that don’t have the time to read stories, but you can write a story in a poem with very little words. Happy days writing.
