Stranded – no place to run

These infernal crop dusters won’t leave me in peace.

How am to do my job if they won’t leave me alone??

Where is a pest to roam?

This flash fiction is the “answer” to my Friday Flash Fiction. If you get a chance, read the full sequence. Thanks to Monkey Man who each week gives us the opportunity to hang out at his place and write fiction in 160 characters – it can be done!

Thank you for visiting Moondustwriter. In 2019, we have an exciting project. We are developing elementary curriculum for Ugandan children. As a writer, it is a thrill to help children who want to learn. Along with the curriculum, we hope to develop simple fictions about Uganda for the children to read at school. Trust me books are in short supply. We will use our trusted story tellers: a butterfly and a lion to make the stories come alive. Stay tuned as Bethany and Me put pen to paper. I've been part of the blogging community for more than 10 years. Some old timers may remember the award winning (2012 Twitter Shorty ) blog community - One Stop Poetry. I was the (quiet) originator of the idea and co-producer of One Stop Poetry. I am a published writer, poet, artist and photographer. I have written, as well as edited, for periodicals, radio, blogs and fellow writers. There are many facets to this moon - thanks for stopping by.

  1. Good morning, Moondustwriter,
    No, I didn’t see the movie yet — but I will! Despite that, without seeing the movie, I love how the 55 and today’s 160 work together.
    PS. Thanks for the comment on mine. Power has been restored. Woohoo!


    1. 228 30 = 198HHmmmmmm .how can they not like it ???They are so beautiful.and a very BIG THANK YOU Mr. BZCAMPOR.Do you know of any group who are trinyg to make nightwatches, like trinyg to see one during formation, I would like to volunteer for a week..:-)Thank You SirNathan


    1. Well done mate !!I`m heading over there for a month this year for the sseaon Dissapointing in England so far this yea,r a few good genuine ones, most have obvious geometry flaws, if the they were not posted anywhere, maybe they would loose interest in creating them as one aspect, on the other, maybe they are just trying to get a communication back from them


    1. I’ve yet to see any that really stand out as being gneiune this year. We’ve also got these annoying teams coming over from germany claiming to make a lot of these glyphs this last couple of years.


  2. If you say a 160 CAN be done, I believe you, even tho I’m daunted at the prospect. I guess like anything, just DO it, eh?

    Crop dusting should be outlawed imho, unless of moon dust.

"There is but one straight course, and that is to seek truth and pursue it steadily" - George Washington letter to Edmund Randolph — 1795. Going beyond the MSM idealogical opinion/bias and their tabloid news with a distractional superficial focus on entertainment, sensationalism, emotionalism and activist reporting - this blogs goal is to, in some small way, put a plug in the broken dam of truth and save as many as possible from the consequences—temporal and eternal. "The further a society drifts from truth, the more it will hate those who speak it." - George Orwell
