Welcome to the Picture it & Write creative writing exercise. I invite 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 (please provide a translation). 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.

Please continue to write however you’re inspired, but add a tag to the beginning of your post if there’s mature content in order to keep Picture it & Write an engaging event for all of our followers.

It’s always better to jump right in. Even though the cold swallowed me up, sending a shock through my system. It’s better than bouncing up and down on tip toe, starting at the ankles, then the knees, then the waist. That only prolongs the cold.

Everyone sped off toward the other side of the pool in an unspoken race. Swimming laps was the fastest way to get warm. I would have joined them, but something else caught my attention. There was a toy lodged in the drain. We didn’t have any pool toys, so I wasn’t sure where it came from. Had one of the neighbors accidentally thrown it over the fence?

As I looked closer, I saw eyes and a girl smiled at me. The hole wasn’t big enough for me to follow her, but I was sure I’d seen something special.
