One Picture = 1000 Words - # 3
For me, this photo brings to mind such words as: Romance, Reflection, Promises, Separation, Unopened letter, Unknown future. Following up on that train of thought, I now try to write something that uses both the feeling the photo conjures and the actual description of the photo. It's great fun and helps me keep my thought processes fluid and unrestrained.
Narrative Exercise: I couldn't stop shaking as I stared at the beautifully laid breakfast table. Two delicate pink roses lay nestled together, their dewy petals begging to be touched. Heart shaped chocolates perched atop a pink envelope with my name across the front and the words, "So sweet a love that death cannot part."
I raised a trembling hand to my mouth and felt the beads of perspiration forming on my skin. So innocent a scene, so promising of love and happiness. Why then, did terror threaten to suck the breath from my lungs?
GIVEAWAY: Just for fun, I'm going to give away a set of my handmade, Dutch Doll appliques to three different persons who comment on this post. These are iron-on ready. You must live in the U.S. and be a blog follower to win. Deadline is February 15th.
OUR WINNERS ARE:
Teri K and Linda Henderson
