Midget Monday #6


Happy Monday!

I had originally planned to make this week's Midget Monday more Christmassy (I did look this up, and apparently this is an actual word), but I didn't have a holiday poem or story ready by the time Monday came around, so I just have two regular ones for you this time!

What is Midget Monday?

Midget Monday is a weekly post containing one micro-poem (~6 lines or less) and one "micro" story (~300 words or less). Poems and stories may sometimes share a theme, but will usually be two random, mismatched topics. I may also build more upon any of the poems or stories that I use in these posts, so you might see these (or something similar) again in the future!

Micro-Poem

Magic In Winter

Cross the bridge that's covered in white,
Lose yourself in frigid enchantment;
Frozen flakes and shimmering waters,
Bewitching with their wintry adornment.





Micro-Story

Write Away

Sitting by a mahogany desk, a figure pauses in his work; pen in hand, its movement ceased, a world unfolds within the walls of his mind. A hailstorm of possibilities, each thought forcing his attention - pellets pound and melt away, with them gone his time and day, but he desires no less than perfection.

Through the flurry of his thoughts, a path forward begins to clear. He lifts his pen, refills its ink, continues on and brings to life these words on paper.

  1. I LOVE this idea! I'd never heard of it before; I may have to give it a try sometime. :)
    My favorite was the short story, but I love some of the imagery you used in the poem - especially "frigid enchantment".

    1. Thank you! :) Feel free to do so! And please let me know if you do, because I'd love to see it. It's a fairly new thing - if you'd like, you can take a look at my first one here. :)

      The story was my favorite as well. The poem, while I'm satisfied enough with it, was very on-the-spot.

      Thanks so much Ellie! <3

  2. I'm so glad Christmassy is a word, that is something I didn't know I needed in my life.
    I love both the story and the poem, they're both so well constructed, and for some reason the story has such a cozy, hopeful feel to it, I love it so much <3

    1. Ahaha, isn't it great? I wasn't sure which spelling to use for it so I googled it and up came the dictionary entries.

      Aw I'm glad you think so, Kelsey! :) I'm happy you like them. Thank you!
