TIPS FOR FLASH FICTION
***You only have room for one main character, so choose her well.
***You only have room for one scene, so choose it well.
***You only have room for a single plot.
***You only have room for a single, simple theme
***Get to the main conflict of the scene in the first sentence.
***“Show” anything related to the main conflict.
***“Tell” the backstory; don’t “show” it.
***Save the twist until the end.
***Eliminate all but the essential words.
Go against these rules any time.
They’re not really rules. They’re tips.

Listening to Lao Tzu sketch
Faith opening meaning’s door
A fathomless depth
Traveled through time’s corridor
Enters our mind’s eye

( “Reflections” haiku 1st appeared on Ben Naga blog )
The Phoenix is a universal symbol of rebirth, reincarnation, transformation, renewal and immortality. The Phoenix represents all that is good and kind and is often thought to be the ‘feminine’ counterpart of the yin/yang of Universal Energy. For thousands of years the tales of the ‘Bird of Fire’s’ immolation and resurrection have been told.
The Phoenix is a self reliant creature, only one ever existing at any one time. It is it’s own father, mother and child. All spring from the ashes of it’s fiery transformation.
The Phoenix can bring forth past life memories and aide in the healing of past emotional traumas, both from this life and those you have previously had.

Ronovan Weekly Haiku Writing Challenge: Start & Hot #62
A weekly Haiku writing prompt to inspire those who join along. It is like putting together a word puzzle carefully. It is enlightening. Meet new people. Discover a community who shares support. At the end of each challenge we hear from Ronovan on his interpretation of how we all succeed. Sometimes its a review with words of support and sometimes its a list of all the participants with LINKS to their Haiku. Oh, it is an awakening experience to read what others have created with the two words for each new weekly challenge. If you feel such inspiration. Go to the LINK Ronovan Writes Haiku… Join a growing community. It is exciting to look forward each Monday to the two new words and then figuring out how to mold them into a Haiku. – jk-tsk

View artists carvings
Designs of creatures dancing
Running feet chasing
Answers then questions
Perceive the races outcome
Let beginning end
Crashing heads and balls
Taking down the hero best
Love two one child wins
Hitting tramples tender minds
Winners hug at end
Punch the sphere with fists
Palms wanting to touch the sky
High as one can fly

#12 scattered minds (c) jkm 2015
A – Z Writing Challenge #11
Awareness of the mind
Breaking thoughts free from inside
Courting freedom’s sound
Effectively face new goals
Find the dreams returned
Heart mind and soul combining
Jammed mind – blind thinking
Killer of the self – murder
Lose feeling to live
Mentor guides t’ward light
Numbness is all consuming
Opposite is life
Study eyes’ blackness
Trips the pain sticking the heart
Under it is fear
Waiting to scare ghosts away
X-rated thoughts – deep
Yesterday’s darkness – grabbing
Zapped by lightning – thunder roars
