Crimson’s Creative Challenge #13



Welcome to my weekly challenge—open to all—just for FUN, FUN, FUN

Here’s how it works:

Every Wednesday I post a photo (this week it’s that one above.)
You respond with something CREATIVE

Here are some suggestions:

  • An answering photo
  • A cartoon
  • A joke
  • A caption
  • An anecdote
  • A short story (flash fiction)
  • A poem
  • A newly minted proverb, adage or saying
  • An essay
  • A song—the lyrics or the performance

You have plenty of scope and only two criteria:

  • Your creative offering is indeed yours
  • Your writing is kept to 150 words or less

If you post a link in the comments section of this post I’ll be able to find it
If you include Crimson’s Creative Challenge as a heading, WP Search will find it (theory)
If you tag it #CCC others should be able to find it by ‘Searching’ in the WP Reader (fingers crossed)

Here’s wishing you inspirational explosions. And FUN.

Details of the photo are given, if relevant, below this line

    It’s sunny, just beyond the gate.
    It’s warm, just beyond the gate.
    But I have closed it,
    And locked it.
    I will never go through that gate again.

    I went through it once before.
    I loved the sun.
    I loved the warmth.
    And then it disappeared.
    I will never go through that gate again.

    The sun does not come here.
    I always feel cold.
    I will never go through that gate again.

      I’m still trying to get to grips with this side of you. Dirty Ditties, yea, but … this?
      I thank you, Brian, for your take on the prompt. 🙂

        It’s the tragic insight I gained by being the reincarnation of Thomas the Cuckold. (You remember, the author of the Later East Anglian Chronicle.)

        What gave me a turn was going on to read your take on the photo in the follow-up post, and realizing that in a way we were offering variations on a common theme.

        My offering always come the next day. And that little tale was based on a true story. the slam-in-the-face onset of CFS. No, I wasn’t depressed. I was trapped.
        And yes, I do remember the glorious (or should that be infamous) Thomas the Cuckold. Shame he found his new body across the ocean/ Such talents … wasted there. 🙂

        Heck. Twas no insult to your compatriots’s abilities, more concerning tastes in humour. We Brits like it dryer than do your fellow countrymen. 🙂
