Encounter

by on August 30, 2013

This story was written for Trifecta’s weekend challenge, which was to write a haiku. This is what my muse gave me. I think my muse has been spending too much time with Sokka.

“Hi, Sal.”  Quincy says.

First contact. Unsure. Will she?

Her smile, bright. “Hi, Q.”

    zomg I love you for the Avatar reference. Is the last line intentionally six syllables? I love it anyway haha

    • I think smile is a word of one syllable, but I gather there’s disagreement on that point. 🙂

      I love that you got the Avatar reference. Always a pleasure to find out someone shares the same fandom as oneself. 🙂

  2. I don’t think I’ve seen a Haiku in dialogue before. Cool!

  3. The briefest exchange can lead to the dream.

  4. Clever shortening of Quincy at the end to make it work. 🙂

  5. Wow, a haiku-form story. I never think of these things and yet they should occur to me. Nicely done!

    Dialogue in haiku. Awesome!

  7. Ha! Love the tongue-in-cheek homage to the haiku. Nicely done. 🙂

  8. A dialogue – brilliant!

    very clever…one of my favorite ones. good stuff

  10. Cool response to the prompt! I didn’t get the Avatar thing, but that’s not really a surprise. 🙂 Interesting to use dialogue. Thanks for linking up.

  11. Frankly I’m not surprised that Draug got the reference, from the stuff of hers that I’ve read, but it still makes me happy all the same. This is all light hearted and cute on top of it, I think your muse needs some booze 🙂

    • With what my muse gives me sometimes, I think she’s already got access to intoxicating substances. 😀
