Carry On Tuesday # 170

This week we have as our prompt a modern translation of the first line of Dante's Inferno

Midway in life's journey....

Use part or all of it within your flash fiction or poem, then leave your URL with Mister Linky.
To read a bit about Dante and see an excerpt from Longfellow's translation go over
to Carry On Tuesday Plus


  1. Loved this prompt! It gave me the opportunity to explore a different writing style - well, at least one I rarely use!

  2. Self-portrait of being midway life's journey. Lol.

  3. Thanks for the prompt Keith. Have a good week everyone.

  4. Great prompt... Thank you Keith.

  5. Well, it's a bit of a dirge, and a 19th century one at that, but thanks for the prompt. As always, you seem to capture my mood somehow with the prompt, even if I take it and run in a completely different direction than it's source or perhaps it's intention.
    Thanks again. I don't always get a post in, but I do love the prompts and the ideas, and seeing what other folks have to say.

  6. Here's another one..
    Thank you.

  7. I know I'm a bit late, but that's regular behaviour with me. I hope to have some time and read the others' poems, too. Time shortage is also regular with me... I guess that's a common trouble these days.
    Thanks, Keith, for hosting this!
