Ermilia’s Picture it & write (Sunday 20 January 2013)
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.
So you think you can have me.
So you think I care.
So you think the world is round.
What do I care!
What do I care; what do I care…
I don’t seem to care about much these days. I’m like that old clock on the wall; it’s stopped.
It stopped ticking some time ago. I think it was when you left.
Yeah; I think that was when it stopped.
It dawned on me that life was less than a flower; less than a pond; less than a mediocre grain of salt.
Yeah, that happened when you left me, encased in this frozen waste of bitter blue.
