It’s Fandango’s Flashback Friday!

Wouldn’t you like to expose your newer readers to some of your earlier posts that they might never have seen? Or remind your long term followers of posts that they might not remember? Each Friday I will publish a post I wrote on this exact date in a previous year.

How about you? Why don’t you reach back into your own archives and highlight a post that you wrote on this very date in a previous year? You can repost your Friday Flashback post on your blog and pingback to this post. Or you can just write a comment below with a link to the post you selected.

If you’ve been blogging for less than a year, go ahead and choose a post that you previously published on this day (the 5th) of any month within the past year and link to that post in a comment.


This piece was written on this date in 2019 for the dVerse Poets Pub. The word prompt was invisible.


when a chameleon

is trapped

in perpetual camouflage

or your reflection

in the mirror

and its gut-punching

silence when you ask

(like an idiot!)

who’s the fairest

of

them

all.

It’s when you realize

the world has suddenly

gone blind

to you of

a certain age

That’s what invisible feels like.

  1. love that image of a chameleon trapped in camouflage, truly eerily invisible. your second part is more thought provoking, is it just age that lends us invisible, sometimes race and colour do the same. such a powerful response to the prompt.
