A special thank you to Scriptor Obscura for suggesting this photograph to be used this week for Picture it & write. Note: Neither Ermilia nor Scriptor Obscura created the image nor claim ownership of it. It belongs to: Ryan Cardone.
I urge people to join in, comment with your paragraph of fiction to accompany the image. It doesn’t have to follow my story or reflect the same themes. It can be a poem or in a different language (provide a translation please :)). Anyone who wants to join in, is welcome. This photograph has been reblogged under Ermisenda on tumblr.
My hand broke the surface. Cool air fed on my wet fingers, sending cold shivers down my hand. I retracted my hand. I peered through my mask at the underworld. The moving black shapes, the slimy creatures and the colorful speckles swayed in my vision to the beat of the ocean. I wondered what it would be like to never break the surface again. What would it be like to be one of these underworld creatures? I yearned to escape in this world. I hated my world of plastic people and robotic possessions. The ocean pulsed with life. I knew my oxygen tank was empty and I didn’t care. I swam deeper. I took off my mask and was engulfed by life.
