Welcome to Picture it & Write, a weekly creative writing prompt here on ErmiliaBlog. I invite people to join in to our creative writing prompt. 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).
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.
Heat surrounds us. My two sisters and I hear whispers, one sided conversations, prayers. People think we have a loom, a thread, sharp scissors. Snip. Ignorance. Our world is not one of colors and pictures, of tapestries and stories. Our world is one of light we cannot see.
We hear the screech of tires, smell alcohol amongst the smoke. The three of us converge on a set of candles and wait. We watch without ever seeing. I purse my lips. Whoosh. Someone’s light is blown out.
