#Flashfiction – Splash, a poem

Making a splash

How do you see

your life unfolding?

What gives you purpose?

What inspires you

to get up in the morning

and face the day?

Do you care if your actions

leave the surface

of your own life

and that of others

smooth and unmarred?

Or is your ambition to cause

small ripples across

its glassy face?

Do you think it’s important

to make an impact?

To do or say something

that will be noteworthy

and possibly inspire change

to the course of many lives

What is your purpose

To leave an unmarred surface

Or to make a big splash?

by Robbie Cheadle

Written for Charli Mill’s flash fiction prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less) write a story that makes a big splash. It can be fluid, or you can play with the idiom (to make a big splash is to do or say something that becomes unforgettable). Go where the prompt leads!

      1. Sadly to say, the rain started again last evening and its been none-stop again. A big storm last evening with many lightning strikes, we have an Amber weather warning in place for flooding. But we are ok where we live, we are on a hill. ❤ Thank you for asking Robbie ❤
