A 55er ? inspired from Usha Ma’am

A glimpse is sometimes all you get

of a dream, an angel, a moment just before sunset

This is it you say to yourself

and then it passes, its gone, it never was

The search begins from then on forward

For something that defines you but cant be expressed

Such is life, This is It


This is what a 55 er is; information from Usha’s post :)

A literary work will be considered 55 Fiction if it has:

  • Fifty-five words or less (A non-negotiable rule)
  • A setting,
  • One or more characters,
  • Some conflict, and
  • A resolution. (Not limited to moral of the story)


I dont have a heading for this one and am not sure if this one does justice to all the above rules. But if it doesnt, then maybe i can write one again. 😀

  1. I rather like it, and loosely yes, it can be defined as a 55er. But as Marie, above, has mentioned, only the core, the succinct essense is delivered, without the narrative element 🙂
    Also it has been my understanding, that a 55er is usually prose (mind you only an understanding 😀 ).
    To the poem itself. You express much in so little (well, yes , obviously, you are thinking, I got to! 😛 ). What I meant is that you covered a gamut of moments, and emotions and packed much that is profound and everyday, with those few words! I really liked it.
    Red Ink: Why the capital suddenly mid line? Last line? Could punctuation be tightened or organized better? 😛

    1. Love the Red ink.. Yay !!! Sorry Maam ( Head down, toes making arcs in the sand)

      Well, its too easy if it is prose. Noted the narrative element issue, fixed that in the next one..
