FSF – Five Sentence Fiction – “Flowers” – “Off from Poppyland” PG13

What it’s all about: Five Sentence Fiction is about packing a powerful punch in a tiny fist. Each week I will post a one word inspiration, then anyone wishing to participate will write a five sentence story based on the prompt word.

The word does not have to appear in your five sentences, just use it for direction.

This week:  Flowers

Off from Poppyland

By Scott L Vannatter

The motley crew, one by one, began to drop to their knees, each succumbing to the scented nectar of the poppies all around them.

The Tin man first, his clanking heard round the empire, followed by the lion who, for his entire cowardliness, managed to fall asleep in front of everyone.

The scarecrow nested among his own limbs of straw softness; Dorothy lying in his arms.

Lastly, the skinny little runt of a dog managed to nose off the crimson slippers and step into them with a “tap” “tap” “tap”.

“Heading back, homies,” he growled, fading into the afternoon sun.

Spring is finally here – for Me, It has Come in like a Lion!

I saw a flower in my yard today!  So, I decided that, officially, meant spring is here.  I dutifully got my camera, went out, and captured some of the nicer things.  When I finished, I listened and heard a loud windy noise.  There is a storm brewing!  It may pass me; it has so far but for sprinkles, but I did catch several pics of that as well.

The “Lion” part for me was coming back inside.  I was boiling spaghetti to make baked spaghetti in the oven.  The spaghetti was almost done, so I turned on the oven.  With a bright light, the oven element burned out and blew my fuses for both the oven and the stove.  I finished the spaghetti in the microwave and ate it as is.  It was fine; my oven isn’t.  Making plans to use Mom and Dad’s Nu-Wave oven for now and looking at how to replace it soon.

Click on a pic to start the slideshow.  There are two slideshows.  One for the flowers and one for the storm.

Enjoy the pics!
