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 will be reblogged under Ermisenda on tumblr and added to the Picture it & Write gallery on Facebook and Pinterest.
Every fortnight we hope to host a photograph suggested by contributors. So, keep those photograph recommendations coming. Submit your favourite images (with credit) for next week’s Picture it & write!
I survived an apocalypse. Actually, I have survived multiple apocalypses. 2000, 2005, 2010, and now 2012 as well. I know there will be new doomsdays to face. Days fabricated from groups of people desperate to believe in something bigger than what’s in front of us. Why do they spread fear like a disease? Is it meaning they are anxiously clawing for? If these people are searching for meaning, then why not predict joydays rather than doomsdays? Rainbow light caressed my face as I gazed at the fireworks. There had been no explosion, just light and celebration. We had survived. I didn’t know if anyone had predicted a new doomsday for 2013 but I did know I had plenty of joydays lined up.

the stars seemed perfect that night.
what more could i, a shadow chaser, add?
she gifted me with my flaws.
false modesty stung my eyes
as i shut out what was and brought me
to this dull, unobtrusive night.
i sprung orange, spat green, and sparked red
until i died blazing brown and wet.

OMG, “she gifted me with my flaws.” I love that line so much! ♥
thank you so much! 🙂
A great poem, Veronica! I really like the range of colours mentioned at the end. Thanks for contributing this week. 🙂
Continuing with the doomsday theme…http://discoveriesinaletterbox.wordpress.com/2012/12/30/fireworks/
Thank goodness for our magical protectors. 😀 I love that you saw the person casting a spell. Great work! Thanks for contributing this week. 🙂
here is my writing
The poem flows so wonderfully. Taking us along the journey of the story. You weaved those serious themes so well. Thanks for contributing this week to Picture it and write!

Bahahahaa, I love that music list! ”Satan cat” sounds catchy! Thanks for contributing with your very creative piece, yerpirate!

Here’s mine for today
Balance is a very hard mission to strive for. I like that you didn’t try and idolise the ‘new’ god, but emphasise the complicated nature of humanity. Good and bad exists in us all! Thanks for contributing. 🙂

Haha! I hope we all survive five more. They’re so much fun! I’m rubbing up my crystal ball here… I foresee a good omen. Yes! It is a sign of much joy! I can get to Pirate’s blog now! Really a great thought, Ermi! Why don’t we predict good stuff?! I like the burst of color in your rainbow too.
Here’s Guiding Light. Happy New Year!

Haha… wrong end tag again. Worst kind of typo!
Typos happen, don’t sweat it. 😛 Yep, I’m sure we will survive many more apocalypses. 😀 I hope you have a few joydays lined up yourself, Annie. 😉
So beautiful. I’d like to read more about this society with muses. It sounds like a great, fat metaphor for writers and artists. 😛 Stunning storytelling as always, Annie! Thanks for contributing this week!
Here’s mine. A superhero origin tale and only my second time writing. Happy New Year. http://lancemyblogcanbeatupyourblog.wordpress.com/2012/02/04/superhero/
sorry…wrong link…here’s the one i wrote for picture it and write..
happy new year
A very cool beginning to a story. I like how you described the colours of a demon. Stereotypically, movies and stories like to just go with ‘darkness’ but you chose orange and white. Thanks for contributing this week! We hope to read more from you, Lance. 🙂
mine ^^ http://theeclecticeccentricshopaholic.wordpress.com/2013/01/01/picture-it-write-vii/ thanks for coming up with photos that continue to challenge and inspire.. happy new year! ^^
Happy New Year to you too! 🙂
Very different. Very sensual! This was a great description ‘I was blown into smithereens… infinitesimal fragments of gold and dewdrops and silvers of fire’. Maybe you could continue this story one day? It has a tale to be told! 🙂 Thanks for contributing this week to Picture it & write.

Happy new year! Just submitted my contribution 🙂
The story was intriguing although I feel like we need to know about them and their past. Why didn’t he fight? Great work anyway! I’m just too curious. 😛 Hope you had a great New Years! 🙂
I hope they use their power for the greater good, but as Anne said, often it’s for fear. Hopefully they will be wise with their power and influence! Thanks for contributing this week to Picture it & write. 🙂
