Fume-#writephoto Dragons Do Breath Fire


Peering out from behind the boulder, I could see the plume of it’s breath. The fume, a cloud; glowing.  It mixed with the mist off the lake until the entire night air was lit.  Soon they’d see.  Maybe throwing rocks to wake him wasn’t a good idea.  But now, now they would believe me.  Dragons do breath fire.

Offering of the Past #writephoto

She walked toward the Pinnacle with hesitant steps.  With hands shaking, she carried her past in a silver chalice.  Laying the vessel at the base of the luminous structure, she turned.  With only the future ahead, her steps now light as air, she forged on, excited, at last, about what lay ahead.

#writephoto Copper


Pennies 
and rust 
and sunsets.  

Copper. 

The colors 
of the season. 

The earth 
turns it's back 
on the sun 
and begins the process 
of a winter's nap.  

Leaves crunch underfoot, 
announcing your presence 
on the trail.  

A brisk chill 
pushes you 
down the path.  

You pick up the scent 
of a campfire.  

The quiet of the morning is
disturbed only by your footfalls.  

You take in the serenity 
of the day.

Safe Haven


REBLOG: This is an older post, but I thought there might be readers that have not seen it and hopefully enjoy it.  This is inspired by one of Sue Vincent’s Thursday #writephoto prompt.  I came across this post while looking through my archives.  I like it quite a lot.  I hope you do too.  I had fun with this.

Penny Wilson Writes

** I have been having a hell of a time writing anything worth posting lately!  The last couple of weeks, I’ve wanted to participate in Sue’s #Write Photo challenge, but nothing comes.  😦   I forced myself to sit down at the keyboard and stare at the dammed white page until something came.  It is a complete surprise what came of this.  See below.  I hope you enjoy.    

Safe Haven–

The page before me glares back.  The cursor’s unwavering blink is about to drive me to madness.  I hear the clock tick and my own heartbeat between my ears.  All else has fallen away.

Forgotten #writephoto


The forgotten door to yesterday. The backroads and wrong turns of your youth. The place where magic was always a possibility and summers stretched forever.  Behind this door lies a realm of fantasy, riches unclaimed, and misplaced dreams.  The key is just under that stone to the left, hidden in a niche.

Would you use the key?

Stay-Tranquil #writephoto


I cherish
each beat of your heart.

I feel your heat
under my fingertips.

My time with you
fleeting.

I see,
reflected in your eyes
winged moments.

Come with me,
my love.

I'll give you 
tranquility

in these arms.

Stay.

Life will be there
on the ’morrow.

Don't hurry.

Stay.

#Writephoto – Timeless — Roberta Writes


This week, Sue Vincent has most obligingly given us another prompt word that lends itself to an extract from my WIP, Through the Nethergate. Or maybe, the idea I had for this word lent itself to my writing a new piece into my draft. Either way, I am grateful to Sue for the idea. “She […]

Just Your Imagination

Churning thoughts 
blacken petals

Inward visions 
cast doubts

Expanding on the 
ordinary

Illusions of Control 
never given

Delusions made reality

Just Imagination.

Knight’s Honour – #writephoto




His honour came from days of old 
where maidens fell at his feet 

Dragons roared and spewed fire 
his challenge; to defeat.

His body clad in armor;
a helmet placed upon his head  

To defend the king’s daughter,
His life’s blood, willingly shed. 

As he breathed his last farewell,
she placed a rose upon his chest

She wept tears of sorrow,
knowing he had given his best.   

The dragon lay cold and lifeless;
the village safe, for now

The knight died for their honour
After fulfilling his sacred vow.
