Microfiction Monday Mothman

Susan at Stony River challenges bloggers every Monday with a linky party called,  Microfiction Monday.
She posts a picture and in 140 characters or less, you are to write a short story or short poem based on the picture. I have a story and a poem, hope you like them.

~ In the year when man is no longer alive,
Women must survive by making a modern man
sadly for Lea, her man was a cheap
model made from scraps!
(140 characters)

~Young forbidden love
different worlds kept them apart
no one believed he had a heart
his weeping rusted his soul and his parts   
(127 characters)

If you'd like to give this linky a try, visit Susan at Stony River It would be fun to see what you come up with. 


  1. I like them both, but I think the first one is my favourite...great job!
    Have a wonderful week ahead. Cheers!

  2. "Rusted his soul and his parts" - very good! But I also liked the "cheap scraps" line. Well done.

  3. These are great, Maria. I love the voice.

    Have a great week.

  4. I enjoyed both of these, the first because it made me grin and the second because I found it romantic. Good job, Maria!

  5. Maria, I like! Especially the making of a modern man when there are now real ones left.
    That sounds like a 'no-funner' world! :)

  6. Maria;

    I'm glad that I don't have to choose which one I liked the best because I can't.
    Both are sooo good!

  7. Nice poems. I especially like the idea of interplanetary Romeo and Juliet.

  8. Beautiful!!!
    Kisses and big regards.

  9. I hope the year without men doesn't arrive..... I'd have to unscrew my own jars!

  10. Oh you clever thing! These are both wonderful takes on the prompt! Way to rock it.

  11. I loved the second one especially LOL! :O)

  12. Tragic! Very nice poem. You have a talent.

  13. Fun Look at Susan's photo, She will like these.

  14. Seems the first is the most popular. Well done.

  15. Really terrific takes of the pic of the day, Maria! I love them both and like Peggy, I'm glad I don't have to make a choice!! Hope you have a great week ahead!


  16. I have so much fun reading these!
    I think I've met some men with rusted parts...

  17. You did a poem, and it's a deep one too! Nicely done Maria!

  19. Very lively and very original. Like them both!

  20. Rusted parts? Where is Dorothy with her oil can when you need her?

    Both are nicely done.

  21. Fun! :> The first has me wondering why she made her modern man with wings...multipurposed?! :> And the second, love the line, "weeping rusted soul"...wonderful!

  22. My addendum to the first one: Plus, he had scary fingers and ginormous wings.

    The second one is lovely and poignant--reminds me a teensy bit of hantom of the Opera, though that romance was one-sided. Good stories, Maria!
