Postcard Fiction: Dreaming is Free


Jane Dougherty’s microfiction challenge #15, “Freedom”, was posted way back in September.  I liked the painting by Ilya Repin (below) so much that I did it twice.  Above is the first response.



In the middle of the ocean
time fades into mystery
a journey illuminated
by movement translated into form.
What lies beneath this dream?

    This must be one of your best ones yet! I love the abandon of it. It was certainly worth waiting for—thank you!

      I hope you have not given up prompting us entirely…

        Funny you should ask. While I was looking for a picture of my Hildr, I found a gorgeous prompt painting. I wanted to take a bit of a step back from the blog commitment because I’ve not been on tip top form and there’s a lot going on here. But I’m getting to the end of another novel and then the depression will set in because I won’t know what to do with it. Blogging prompts might be the answer. Take my mind off literary rejections anyway 🙂

        I know it’s a big commitment…and it’s appreciated. It would be a nice celebration to finishing the novel.

        I keep thinking I’m almost there, then I write another chapter, add another character’s point of view. Have to stop somewhere though. Soon. Promise 🙂

    An extremely late and extremely precious entry to the ‘Freedom’ challenge.

    Your interpretations of different pieces are always amazing! Often, I like yours better than the original.
