99 Word Challenge for Carrot Ranch Literary Community #Poetry


September 19: Flash Fiction Challenge

99 words, no more, no less. It’s a simple constraint, an easy-to-master literary art form, and a powerful writing tool for creatives and entrepreneurs. Writers calibrate the usefulness and beauty of 99-words through weekly flash fiction challenges.



Time between sleep when dreaming

A spyglass into another life

On waking, may not belong to you

An uninvited interlude

With pictures, sound and music

A hidden message maybe

Inviting you to explore a mystery

You may have forgotten

The short film that meant more to you

Than the main attraction

That had you thinking, talking about

Reminding you of those in-between moments

When walking on a beach

Your bare feet kissed by the sea

That quiet moment when out walking

When the wind drops

The silence becomes the in between

You hear the echo of your own footsteps.
