Crimson’s Creative Challenge #140

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

  3. By the way WordPress doesn’t seem to like me reposting your pics. I have to do a screenshot of it and rename it, otherwise WordPress won’t let me post it.

    As I walked through the forest, I spied an ancient tree with very unusual roots. They stuck out of the ground at odd angles and had surely tripped a hiker or two. Studying the tree a little more closely, I noticed that there appeared to be the head of an elephant growing its trunk. Its tusks and trunk were embedded in the roots of the tree. I could only see one enormous, sorrowful eye. The elephant appeared to be in some sort of agony, as if bewitched and unable to free itself. I immediately felt sorry for the huge animal and wondered how and why it had become part of the tree. If only it could talk to me, maybe I could free it from its prison of bark and wood. Alas, no words were uttered, although I said “hello”. Only the yellow finches in the high branches could be heard. “Maybe someday the enchantment will end, and you will be free,” I said. As I turned to leave, I caught a movement out of the side of my eye. It looked as if the elephant had winked at me! I turned back and stared unblinkingly, but I detected no movement. Huh, I thought, I could’ve sworn he winked.
