Friday Fictioneers photo prompt: 100 words Ah, Sweet Molly McGuire I knew her well, lik. (A bit too well, if you know what I’m sayin’!) Molly was mad as a ditch, doolally. But we’d get snattered all right. Me muckers would say I was just ridin’ out, but they’re utter glunterpecks, lik. They never knew Molly a bit. She’d loan me a Joyce, and I’d ask her go dollies. With my Mol at my side, I was jammy. What are you playing it? Stop that strange talk! You’re making a big spectacle!

Friday Writings #6 optional prompt: Go micro! Micropoetry. I found there are quite a few opinions as to the definition of micropoetry. Some include short poetry forms, haiku for instance. Others refer to Tweetku or Twitter poetry, which are limited to a 140 character count. 140 characters to me is quite long if we are looking for "micro" works. Some are written in text abbreviations, something I generally find too hard to make out. So... I give you a six, a selection of what I would consider "micro" poems. Some known short forms, others free-verse, and even (shudder) using text!
