55-The Rings of The PHone
Illustrator: Dorothy Grider - Image provided by flickr
Just like the ripples of water
When throwing in a stone,
The rings of the phone
make stirring sound.
Lan's heart beats
As she gives her puppy some treats
The phone keeps ringing,
Boots barks, waiting,
Lan scoops her up,
"Hello, what's up?"
What does she hear?
U tell me, dear!
Write a fictional story in 55 words. Give it a try and notify G-man at:

Awww, I love the pic of the puppy.
Jingle I like this!
nice open ending! fun poem as usual, Jingle
This was very intriguing.
Loved your 55 My Dear!
Thank you so much for this very thoughtful story.
Have a Kick Ass Week-End...G
This was a very enjoyable read, and an excellent response to the prompt! Great post!
How fun! G-man has quite a gig with all of you responding to his challenge.
Great 55 - I always enjoy reading post when my blog friends are doing these.....:-) Hugs
Very clever Jingle cute and thank you so much for stay with us at Monday's Child.....love the new colors on you blog...bkm
Very cleveryly written and that adorable pup,
If only animals could speak eh?
Woof, Woof. My 55 here
i love that photo! so vintage!
Isn't that an adorable picture?
One never knows with phone calls. And there is so much trash with those 800 numbers...I have learned to check caller ID. I think that's terrible of me!
This is a great story! I have never tried the 55. I am just too wordy! lol
that's funny and unexpected - and the picture is sooo cute!
what an amazing 55. Have a great weekend..
Fun, Jingle. Woof!
I really enjoyed this poem Jingle. How you managed to work a few prompts into was great too!! I want to know if she was expecting that call though! I love hwo all the sounds mixed so well with one another. Thank you for sharing.
Fun and lovely poem, i love it totally! :P A amazing 55 written=P
I basically worked on the image given trying to do a child's story,
when I write, I thought about her parents gone to hospital because her Mom is having a new baby, thus she is left alone at home due to emergency, she may be expecting the call from her parents, but she has fears at home alone...
Thanks for the question!
I appreciate everyone's encouragement and comments here.
A mystery! Very nice, Jingle.
I’m up here.
Very cute! I like the image you chose. :)
How COOL is that!! I love how your used one picture to tell the story for three different challenges! You have such a talent - and were able to successfully do all of them in a beautiful way, Kristin xo
loved the post and pic! Thanks for sharing.
You tell me!
Poor doggie with sore paw.
Thank you, Jingle!
Mine is HERE
Wait for the ring then listen to the tone
Is it someone special that is on the phone
It sounds like a little puppy that made the call
Why would the little guy want to talk at all
Maybe he knows how to talk by barking away
While that little guy surely made my day
enjoy Jingle and Happy Saturday to ya(+)
I love your work! I truly do. You rock my friend!
Awesome 55 - I haven't tried poetry in years. Love the summer storm poem as well + pics!
