New take on an old classic: among the poppies!

Dorothy was not in Kansas anymore.

A good witch with a twinkly wand, portly munchkins- trebles in their voices, a yellow brick road. A man made of straw, a man made of tin- both walking and talking but lacking vital organs! A scaredy lion, weeping aloud; A gleaming emerald city, a horse of many colours, a wizard-disillusionment! Wicked witch who melts in water, crystal ball, fainting spells, flying monkeys! Slippers made of rubies, and a spell for homecoming…

And she woke among the poppies- just not in Kansas! 😉

  1. Hey there Shawker!
    So, I read through your work and have to admit I can relate to so much of what you have put down. Amazing how you managed to put everything in such a way to hit home and on point.

    Thank you so much for sharing!!

    1. Thanks Adri,
      My plan was to make myself write quicker than I usually do because I am a perfectionist, and I recognise that is often a vice when it comes to creativity. So, I wrote most of these in under ten minutes…
      I did think they were all rubbish but, looking back on them, they make more sense than I thought. I think I definitely need to time myself in the future.
      All the best, Sally xx
