Picture it & Write – Look at this!

Ermilia’s Picture it & write  (Sunday 21th October 2012)

Once again, here is my offering to ‘Picture it & write’ hosted by Ermilia (Ermisenda and Eliabeth) who invite others to join them by writing a fictional story or poem to accompany an image presented on their blog.

“Oh look; there it is… There it is… There it is… How many times do I have to say this?


Are you listening? Do you Care? Don’t you realise this is extraordinary? It is. It’s extraordinary!”


“‘Cause we are looking at something not everyone gets to see.”


“‘Cause most people don’t care.”


“Well, I don’t know why they don’t care. They just don’t.”


“Well, you know; it’s that thing most have.”


“You know; that thing. They’re, you know; lazy.”


“Oh, come on. You know what I’m talkin’ about. They’re lazy sons of …”


“Cut the crap, mate, or I’ll make you.”

“What the…”

“Yeah; I’m sick of you not caring ‘bout what I have to say.”

“Oh, hell man.”

“Yeah; and as far as that goes, you can pack your gear and get the…”

“Shit man.”

“Piss off.”

“Gawd, what’d I say.”

“Ain’t what you said, mate. It’s what you don’t say.”

  1. Love it. You made me laugh. Exactly, it is not necessarily about what you say, it`s quite often about what you do not say. This is genius!

  2. Very true. Sometimes the strongest and most loaded of messages are given when you don’t say anything at all. Great contribution this week, Carolyn!

    1. Thank You, sweet girl… I nearly didn’t post this one! I was a little concerned about the ‘language’. This is all a bit new to me, and I’m really ‘feeling my way’… So glad you enjoyed! 🙂 xoxoxo

    1. Thank You, Cecilia… I think an awful lot had happened to that relationship before this conversation happened.. haha… Thanks for dropping by; I’m enjoying your blog, you are one good writer..

    1. Hmmmm…. I guess, Smak, we can become a little blasé at times… So many incredible things are happening technologically in our world today, they now pass (some of us) by without truly seeing their magnificence. Guilty as charged too…! 😉

  3. Very funny Carol… hahaha I was surprised that you came up with a funny story basing on the picture above, yet you have managed to impart a very strong message:) You are amazing 🙂 xoxo

    1. Ha hah, Dolly…. I just write what I feel, really..! I don’t generally know where it will go; I just let it happen… You are such a sweetie to make such a lovely comment, my dear friend… xoxoxo 🙂

    1. Scott, I am the one who would be honoured/flattered…!
      Thank You so much, I’d love to….
      You ‘name’ an image, and we’ll see what comes…!
      You are such a sweetie…! 😉
