Where is my Flying Car, at the Very Least? Trifextra

The Trifextra prompt for this week is 33 words:
It's the possibility of having a dream come true that makes life interesting.” ― Paulo Coelho, Alchemist

Perhaps for  My Grandsons
She dreamed of dancing to the stars
To  see worlds in galaxies afar.
So much promised
In her youth.
The millennium and proof
Of life nearby.
The dream is gone, but not forever.

2001 A Space Odyssey


  1. can't wait to hear how her dream turns out!

    1. It's me this time and I was very disappointed the Space program is almost extinct.

  2. Meet George Jetson.
    His boy Elroy.
    Daughter Judy.
    Jane, his wife.

    I bought into the whole futuristic world as a child... I dreamed of spending my summer vacations on the moon! Ha!

  3. I'm still sad about our space program. Such exciting dreams we all had, I think.

  4. This is great! One of my fondest dreams as a child was to be abducted by aliens and taken on a tour of the universe. Love the hint of hope in the last line. Well done!

  5. It's sad that our space program stalled. Perhaps in the future it will become dominant again. (I never wanted to go into space - too scary - but I had friends who that that would be the best ride ever!)

  6. Wow! This piece gave me goosebumps! I am so impressed, Katie!!

  7. I know this feeling! Where is my transporter device? And my other me's in other diminsions. And my alien worlds and the people of earth finally uniting when they realize how big the universe is?

    Awesome writing.

  8. I wanted to be an astronaut as a child and this took me back to those days. Well done.

  9. Maybe if she has a run-in with The Doctor, her dream will come true (:

  10. How cool!Sad that her dream did not come true but who knows what the future holds-glad there still is hope:-)

  11. Those childhood dreams are always so misleading. Then again, with technology moving in leaps and bounds, her dream could very well come true. Lovely post!

    Thanks for linking up!

  12. Mixing one's own dreams with others' can be especially frustrating. Love the rhyme.

  13. Only in science fiction can you reach for the stars in a truly awesome spaceship like that!
