#FlashFiction #Poetry Challenge for Carrot Ranch Literary Community

February 6, 2020, prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less), write a story to the theme “a dog in the daisies.” It can be any dog, real or imagined. Push into the setting and as always, go where the prompt leads!

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.



I love daisies, they are a tiny slice of heavenly perfection

I don’t know why they remind me of young angels

My dog Poppy also likes to dash about

through a field full of them

Leaving them smiling, dancing in her wake

As if waving, clapping hands

Someone loves us, we’ve done a good job

I see a family wearing the daisy chains they made

As I pass, they offer one, which I take gladly

Placing it around Poppy’s neck

I walk on with a smile

Then lie awhile with sweet white daisies

Whispering sweet nothings in my ear…
