Walled Words

I knew I had to have this framed tapestry as soon as I saw it at a town festival. It seemed like a pricey purchase at the time, but I told myself that it would be worth the cost. I knew it would be perfect hanging on the brick wall in my computer room at home.

The size seemed just right and I thought the rich wooden frame would look nice against the brick. A picture of books seemed ideal for a home office.

I thought the fact that the artwork was a framed tapestry was unusual. The colorful antique books almost looked real enough to touch. I liked the way the books seemed well-worn but well-loved. I liked the way the pattern repeated itself, although I didn’t notice it at first. I tried to imagine the book topics. History, romance, poetry and personal journals all waiting to be discovered.

The artwork on my wall reflects the way books, reading and writing have always been an important part of who I am.

This photo is also posted as my fifth entry for the Five Days Challenge that I have been invited to participate in by terryb at through the lens of my life.. The challenge is to post five photos, one per day, for five days and write a story to go along with each photo. The story can be fiction or non-fiction. It can be a short paragraph, a page or a poem. Each day I am to select another person to carry on the challenge. Today, I extend an open invitation for all readers to join in the fun!

Light Tanka (Reaching)

Light enters darkness
Reaching into the shadows
Stretching to corners

As dimness lies cowering
Knowing lightness will prevail

I cannot avert
my adoring gaze
Even if I try

I capture
your reflection
In the apple of my eye

Muddy Water (One Word Photo Challenge)

Muddy Water (Flash Fiction)

She needed to see the creek. That is where she always went when she needed to make a decision. She told herself that looking at the flowing water would give her clarity. But on this day, the creek water was as muddy as her thoughts. She knew making the decision would have to wait. She would not be hurried. It was right to wait.

(This post is in response to JNW’s One Word Photo Challenge with the theme of the brown color called Beaver and to the Five Day Challenge that I was invited to participate in by terryb at through the lens of my life..

Today, it seems fitting to invite Jennifer of JNW to take part in the Five Day Challenge since I brazenly tacked this on to her challenge today. Jennifer, I’m sure you must get lots of challenge invites, so if this is not the right time or you have already participated, I certainly understand. If you want to join in, please do. The challenge is to post five photos, one per day, for five days and write a story to go along with each photo. The story can be fiction or non-fiction. It can be a short paragraph, a page or a poem. Each day you select another person to carry on the challenge.

Thank you, Jennifer, for hosting the OWPC! I look forward to it every week.)
