Sue Vincent offers a #Writephoto prompt weekly at the Daily Echo. I enjoy reading some of the responses with the stories people come up with from a photo and a word. The word this week is ‘choice’, and Sue left 4 images to choose from. I thought I’d jump in with the image given below, and decided to go with the first thing popping into my head.
Welcome to this week’s writephoto prompt. As I travelling, I have posted four photographs to cover TWO weeks prompts. The two prompt words are ‘small’ and ‘choices’.
Take your pick.
Each week, choose one of the images below as inspiration to create a post on your own blog… poetry, prose, humour… light or dark, whatever you choose, by noon(GMT) Wednesday 19th June and link back to this post with a pingback to be included in the round-up. There is no word limit and no style requirements, except to keep it fairly family friendly.
The image shows an old, carved stone whose recesses are stuffed with red and black ladybirds.
Ladybug, Ladybug, Fly Away
Whew! I made it in! Busy day here I see. It’s sweltering out there today! Everyday it’s a drag flying around looking for shelter. I was nearly crushed by human shoes at least 20 times just today. If I wasn’t so quick to escape that one annoying little boy chasing me around with a fly swatter, I surely wouldn’t have lived to tell. I much prefer the docile humans who treat me kindly, making silent wishes and blowing on me gently to seal their wishes.
They tell me I’m lucky. The only thing I’m feeling lucky about today is that I wasn’t squashed or swatted to death. Man, did I ever make the right choice when the gang flew south and I decided to head north.
I’m happy to be back here in safety with my friends, hanging out at Mr. Stone’s moss covered cave getaway where I’m safe for another day and have my friends to commiserate with about whose experience of narrowly escaping those deadly fly swatters was most harrowing today. Tomorrow, it’ll just about be time to hit the skies and look for a place a bit cooler and a lot more friendlier, a place where people appreciate me and don’t wish to kill me.
