Picture it & write – Hope

Ermilia’s Picture it & write  (Sunday 2 Feb 2014)

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.

It had been a hard week; there had been such trouble brewing.

She’d not known such problems before. Confrontation and loss were not nice company; and yet, she couldn’t help but think it would all turn out okay.


She hadn’t always been an optimist, and yet today she felt the stirrings of rest. Indeed, the stirrings of rest and peace were slowly growing within her. They began as a tickle, and then a burst of joy encapsulated her thoughts.

Could it be possible? Would those stirrings bring the much needed peace for her?

She didn’t know. She wasn’t sure. And yet, there they were.


A hope. Yes, just a hope – one filled with much promise.

      1. Your writing is wonderful, and in the front row here. I didn’t want to burst out with “Oh Carolyn! Oh Carolyn off the top, and distract from that fact. 🙂
        Now that we’re here …. “Oh Carolyn, oh Carolyn it’s so wonderful to see you, too! xoxoxoxo

  1. This is a piece that is easy to relate to. Since you focus on the feeling of hope and uncertainty, you don’t specify the problem. Anyone can fit themselves straight in. Lovely writing. It’s great to see you again, Carolyn!

  2. So nice to see you back, Carolyn. I loved that your story ended in hope. I send greetings to cool you down in case it’s too warm where you are today. Here in Wisconsin, it’s 10 degrees below zero at the moment, Farenheit (-23 Celsius). Brrr. Thankfully, the furnace works well. We’re looking forward to signs of spring here!!

    1. It’s lovely to be back, Lori – and Thank You, that cool breeze is very welcome. I am looking forward to Autumn and temps of a more pleasant appeal – current temps up to 100 Fahrenheit make a girl awfully warm.
      Brrr. I shudder at the thought of 10 degrees below zero; I may have to rethink my priorities, after all… 😉
