A word prompt to get your creativity flowing this weekend.  How you use the prompt is up to you.  Write a piece of flash fiction, a poem, a chapter for your novel…anything you like.  Or take the challenge below – there are no prizes – it’s not a competition but rather a fun writing exercise.  If you want to share what you come up with, please leave a link to it in Sammi’s Comment Section.

Thank you, Sammi, for introducing me to a new word. When I learned it’s meaning, the muse took me to my ultimate happy spot. Those who know me well, can guess where I’m going with this. 😉 


Some meditate to achieve absolute peace.

Controlled breathing.

Bio feedback.

For this radiolarian

Tranquility comes in liquid form

Buoying me up to watery heights

Singing an elysian song.

I am a Spanish Dancer,

A sea creature

Blissfully navigating

Waves of purple fan coral

Schools of phthalo-blue tangs

Sunlight beams through the crystalline surface.

Serenity is mine.



“When we’re in the water, we’re not of this world.”
……Gertrude Ederle







  • Dear Rochelle,

    I absolutely adore this poem. Beautifully done (and I had to look up radiolarian!). And oh, to be as graceful as that Spanish Dancer who seems to be dancing for the simple joy of it. The imagery of your poem is sublime.

    Beautifully done, my friend,

    Shalom and lotsa dancing love,

    • Dear Ted,

      I confess, I picked up the word from Doug, our erstwhile disk flinging Friday Fictioneer. He’s also the one who dubbed me “Spanish Dancer.”

      Thank you for your affirming words. 😀
