Crimson’s Creative Challenge #49


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)
by ‘Searching’ in the WP Reader (fingers crossed)

Here’s wishing you inspirational explosions. And FUN.

    Herbert Whitney, 1928 – 1974
    Beloved husband, devoted father, and avid gardener.
    His unique hydroponic zucchini farm produced vegetables unmatched in size and quantity.
    While servicing the hydroponic tank, he was crushed beneath the record-setting specimen which posthumously won the Norfolk Farmers’ and Phrenologists’ Fair’s 1974 award.
    Mourners are invited back up to the house after the funeral for a pot-luck dinner.
    Please, no zucchini dishes.

    It was already written before I read the comments and found out there are no pretty coral reefs in these waters.. Oh well, creative license….

    • I love this. And no, sorry, no coral reefs. In fact, the miserable truth of this boy’s home is this:
      Aggregates being needed to construct the South Bypass at Norwich, and Whitlingham being mostly a wasteland now, and deep in sand and shingle, the diggers got to work. Their quarry, lying beside the River River, flooded (with intent) and the surrounds were allowed to colonise with wild plants and grow free. End result? Facility for canoes and sailing and stuff, with safe off-road paths and hills that remained clothed in woodland as before. It’s amazing as fast the scar has healed. But Whitlingham had long ago served as a quarry, henced the wooded hills. It is now a charming place to walk, camera in hand
