Trickster: Friday Fictioneers

Little bit of Flash Fiction inspired by photo promt provided by Rochelle for Friday Fictioneers. For other Friday Fictioneers fics please head over to her blog and click on the blue frog under photo prompt to see other links. I was going to try and embed the code here but I’m too tired to remember my account details without resetting them.



Chime. Chime. Chime.

Engines spark; sputters, rumbles, and roars.

Stately procession purrs along tarmac.

Dusty relics? Vintage? Classics?

Terms don’t matter to onlookers; admiring invention, progress and change.

Unwittingly worshipping time.

At the head of the procession – Chronos: slurping in belief.

Wily Bastard –Β Surviving the fall of the pantheons.

Should have known the Old Man had a trick up his sleeves.

Loki smirked. It had been soo very long since he had greeted another god. How could he not say ‘Hello?’

The Trickster dealt wild cards, the pranksters in the parade.

Loki skipped, chaos where he tread.

  1. I like this, Stephanie!

  2. I like the rhythm, and now you have got me thinking, that’s good,

    • The rhythm was residual from poetry I just finished before writing this, but when it works I don’t complain. When there are so few words I guess each one needs a moment and a voice. πŸ˜€

  3. I love this. Unwittingly worshipping time, what a great line. Don’t we all?

    • We do. We follow it all day, we moan about the time we waste, we plan how to use it wisely. If Gods existed purely on belief then Father Time has us well ensnared.

  4. Nice poem format and thought process linking the car procession to time is original and smart.
    In this line “Terms don’t matter too onlookers; admiring invention, progress and change.”

    did you want to say ” …to onlookers”?

  5. visually delicious. well done.

  6. A wonderful ‘heartbeat’! πŸ˜‰

  7. Oh… Nice take! πŸ™‚ Love the uniqueness in this.

  8. Where Loki is present can problems be far behind? Well done, Stephanie. πŸ™‚ — Suzanne

    • That’s the general idea. Very telling about the ancient norse/germanic people that their bad boy god was the original prankster. Thanks πŸ™‚
