Holy Holes and Adoration of Ashes?

Navels
More than
Just an orange
For energy or even
Contemplation

Once
I read
A model had
Hers surgically removed…for
Vanity?

Links
Navels from
Mother to babe
Centers of life blood
Flows

I’ve
Been to
Maui – I saw
Different kinds of hard
Lava

Pahoehoe
Is sharp
A’a is smooth
We did not see
‘Lava’

Not
All ash
Is the same…
‘Wildcat Scattering’…she did
That…

To
My father
At his request –
In the Gulf he
Went…

An
Uncle left
His body to
Science – his ashes were
Returned

(…what tradition will I follow?)

Other Carrot Ranch 99 word pieces

April 20: Flash Fiction Challenge

April 20, 2017 prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less) write a navel story. It can include a belly-button, feature an omphalos (geological or cultural), or extend to navel-gazing (used in meditation or to describe excessive self-contemplation). Go where this oddity leads you.

Lava Types: Pahoehoe and Aa. Lavas, particularly basaltic ones, come in two primary types: pahoehoe (pronounced ‘paw-hoey-hoey”) and aa (pronounced “ah-ah”). Both names, like a number of volcanological terms, are of Hawaiian origin. A third type, pillow lava, forms during submarine eruptions. ((pahoehoe (pa-hoy-hoy) and a’a (ah ah).)

  1. Your poetic form flows as smooth as hot magma, pondering all aspects of navels. It does strike me that we have so many choices for our physical endings, how does one decide?

  2. Love this Jules. A wonderful thread flows through from one Elfje to another, rising to meet the challenge in fine poetic form. I think this is my new favourite. Thank you.

    • I was meeting a 99 word challenge so I had to add the additional last line. So it was a mini mash of my own daily piece and the Carrot Ranch prompt (see link).
