With a nod to Raven and Quilly
( This week's Raven's words were really fun )

Friday 55 Flash Fiction is brought to you by G-man (Mr Knowitall). The idea is you write a story in exactly 55 words. If you want to take part pop over and let G-man know when you've posted your 55.

Every week a nice lady named Raven gives us fifteen words and phrases to use in a story. Here we try to use those words and phrases in a flash 55.This week's words are : sow, close, console, lives, minute, polish ,bass, pussy , complex, resume, bow, house, import, intern, sewer

The Poor Cat

The Polish pussy pussy would sow minute traces of blood on the console as we came close to understanding the import on her life. The fact that she lives means a bow to the house intern who pulled her from the sewer , fed her Bass Complex, and got a sewer to resume stitching her up.

And Now for something completely different. A flash 55 quivel. Something that looks like a poem, uses at least three of Quilly’s words and has five words to a line for eleven lines. Click on the special words for definitions.

The Phlyarologist

The phlyarologist talked a lot
Everything she said was rot
Risible the things she said
Talking out of her head
Mellifluous the voice she had
What she said was bad
Pulchritudinious lady though she be
Nothing she said touched me
With listeners she didn’t rate
Ineluctable her getting the gate
Summotion was her natural fate


  1. Wow that 55 was a stretch..but you did pull it off;)

  2. you are such clever dragons, i love the word risible. it is fun to say i will need to remember the meaning though.
    so the pretty lady had to go, i love your 55, both of them, how did the kitty fare after all? not sure the fate but maybe something to be continued on a later date

  3. You have such an amazing ability with words! I never knew dragons were so clever! Great 55's!

  4. Loved the double take on the word. Excellently done. And I hope you're not so lonely now ;-)

  5. Oh dear dragons... you do out-DO yourselves sometimes!

  6. A bit 'Wordy', but it has a nice Meter to it.

    Excellent 55 Hot Breath!!

    Thanks for all your help...G

  7. I was confused by combined 2 different games together????
    How uniquely done!

  8. Very very clever my friend. Excellent.

  9. Wow, you've got some depth in this one. Poor pussy pussy.

  10. Dragons certainly have a way with words. I find myself wondering if you've all ingested too many phlyarologists.

  11. Love The Phlyarologist!

  12. Excellent 55 I like both the post. My 55 is up
